Re: Motorcyclists Check In!
After a 25 year hiatus from riding dual-sports, I decided to try a performance bike. This is my 2008 Yamaha FZ1. I just rolled 30k miles on the odometer and it's stock except for Yoshimura slip-on. In stock form it makes over 130 hp, which is more power than I can make good use of and its stock suspension is fine for my level of play.
My youngest brother rides an '08 FZ6 and it's a very decent mid-sized sport touring bike IMO. I can actually ride it a bit quicker in the tighter twisties than my liter bike, but I'm spoiled to the relatively stronger low-end grunt offered by the FZ1.
I'm a bit infatuated with the new Triumph Explorer, so it may occupy some carport space one of these days. I've always wanted another dual-sport so a KLR would be useful, as well.
Critical thinking done in the absence of context and relevance can only produce something useful to someone with an overactive imagination.
Truth by assertion is the cornerstone of propaganda.
“Man is so avid for knowledge that everything he touches turns to facts; his faith becomes theology, his love becomes lechery, his wisdom becomes science. Pursuing meaning, he ignores truth.”
