    Hi all, my names Robert. I'm from Ireland, I'v been driving bikes on and off since 1980 (I was 14 then) I had a 16 year layoff due to kids and finance, got back into it last year and bought an 2005 FZ6 two weeks ago. I joined this site for the great info on here!

    Re: New member welcome thread..

    Hello all,

    Well I will admit -- I joined this forum shortly after purchasing my FZ6 last may, did a lot of browsing but did not do any posts.
    Now, I am ready to sell it, and need some non B-S posts! So here goes the non BS introduction:


    I'm from Cali, I've always been into motorsports/engines. My dad (and dad's side) have been long time car people. It's in di blood.
    I had an early interest in motorcycles -- dirt biking with Dad and his friends.

    Took the CHP course when I was 18 or 19, but never completed the actual riding portion.


    Fast forward 9-10 years, graduate college, working at job that I hate, trying to live a little.
    I take the class, complete it this time, and finally get my butt on a bike -- ninja 250.


    WOW! What have I been missing my whole life!??!

    As much as I love cars (my RX7 is something amazing), bikes are of no comparison. The feel, the wind, the control, the agility....WOW. (and lets not forget about the [lack of] COST)

    I learned on the 250 for about a month before deciding to upgrade. FZ6 made the most sense, price and practicality wise. I was working in san diego but needed something I could take back up to LA where my family and friends live.


    FZ6 fit the bill. I found one for 4000$ with only 5000 miles on it, dealer purchased and owned by an older gentleman. He realised that getting back into motorcycles wasn't the best idea so I picked up his showroom condition bike, Cortech saddle bags included.

    It's treated me so well. Such a fun bike to ride and fits the bill in any situation.


    BUT ALAS, I am moving on. I had it garaged and sitting over the winter rains in Cali, and I've barely ridden it since. I am making monthly payments and now that I've moved back to LA, insurance skyrocketed...

    So, better late than never -- nice to meet you all

    Re: New member welcome thread..

    Hey everybody. My name is Tim and I live in Kent, Washington. Quick back story - After 6 years and 113,000 miles on my ST1300, doing IBA style rides and a few endurance rallies, I had to start dialing back on so much riding and focus on getting our house in shape in preparation for retirement. So, the last 3 years, or so I really wasn't riding the bike the way I had planned when I bought it and farkled it up.. Then, when I injured my back this last March, and was looking at the prospect of not being able to ride it at all for up to a year, I decided to let a friend have it and look for something a lot lighter and better suited to the type of riding I'm able to carve time out for lately.

    Enter my new-to-me 2004 FZ6. I picked it up a week ago with 8,300 miles on the clock and have only been able to put a couple of hundred more on it so far but I'm convinced it was the right decision. In a perfect world, it would have a mid-weight twin instead of a four (much like the unlikely-to-ever-be-available-in-the-States MT-07 Tracer) but I'm sure I will get acclimated to the power characteristics of the revvy little motor.

    In the meantime, I'll continue to lurk here, gleaning as much info as I can.

    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    Re: New member welcome thread..

    Hi Everyone. I actually bought my 2009 FZ6 last April. A quick intro, I'm 45 and started riding about 3 years ago, after years of not being allowed to have a bike, or unable to afford it, (first Mom wouldn't allow it, then had no money, got married, had a kids, got divorced and had no money again, got married again and had another kid, divorced again and no money again) I finally said screw it, and did something for me. Took a class, passed the test and got a Honda CTX700 (not the automatic one, a regular shift it yourself manual), and quickly decided cruisers were not for me, but had to wait to pay it off before trading it. A friend had an FZ1, which I loved, but he pointed me to the FZ6 as a better step up - more manageable, and cheaper since I'm still not rich...picked up my FZ6 with about 8,000 miles and paid $4,800 for it. in 14 months, I've racked up almost 10,000 miles, and still love it!

    Hello guys!!!

    My name is Manos and I am from Greece and I am 23 years old!
    I got my fz6 naked s1 2007 about 2 months now and I am in love with it and it's my third bike but my first four cylinder bike!

It got new tyres, new chain and sprockets, xenon headlight, leovince Titanium with out cat, rizoma grips and mirrors and I think that all of it! Thanks for the welcoming! And sorry for my English!
