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 – 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.”
