You couldn't give me a BMW... (That'll get things really started).. I can easily afford a top end BMW, or anything else.Off topic...
I'm surprised to learn how may of us geezers ride an FZ6. I've always thought of it as a "starter bike" (I'm a reluctant owner - I bought from a friend of my son who was entering the Navy). But after making suspension and seating mods, I've come to see it as a modern standard and even a light duty tourer. Aren't we supposed to be riding $20k BMW's at our age? Damn we're a cheap bunch. Smart too.
The FZ is plenty fast enough, bullet proof, great mileage, NEVER been to a shop for repairs. Easy to work on, suits all my needs.
I'm a "Yamaha guy" (owned other makes as well), Don't care for the looks of the newer bikes either. Different
sized headlights, rear, stand alone fender that sticks out like a sore thumb? Ugh...
