Hi all!
Been on two wheels for as long as I can remember.
Started on Can Am dirt bikes.
First road bike was a CB350 then went on to several Ninjas in the 90's.
Went the way of adventure touring for years but now I am back on road bikes.
Current ride is a 2006 FZ1 and I am taking delivery this week on a new non current 2012 FZ1.
Cheers!

Welcome! You don't still have the CB350, do you? I have enough parts in my garage to make 3 of them. I'll get around to it eventually...

Hey, is that the 06 for sale on GTAM? I had a very well sorted Gen 1 and now have an FZ-09. Really thinking about adding a gen 2 back into the stable...

That is her.
Picked up a new non current 2012 a dealer had sittin around for a price I could not refuse.
If the 2006 does not sell soon I may just may end up keeping her and mod the shite out of it.
If interested fire me a PM.
