    Re: Where did you find your bike??

    To be honest I don't even remember now how I decided I wanted Yamaha, but I knew that's what I wanted -- so I went to a dealer that carried Yamaha, saw the FZ1 and wanted it.

    After I saw the price, and found out it was a liter bike (yeah, I literally knew nothing about bikes when I was looking for mine), I decided to get the FZ6 instead.

    So basically - I walked into a dealership and walked out with a bike.

    Re: Where did you find your bike??

    Still in the crate out back of the stealer. When i walked in and inquired about an FZ6 I didn't just get a blank look for from the sales woman, she flat out had no idea what I was talking about (and that was supposed to be her specialty). After getting her to look through the invoices she says I think we have one..........out back.........still in the shipping crate. So I walked back there with her and I found it . Picked it up the next day, paid for. The sales woman says I've never seen one of those before. I was thinking "your a freakin Yamaha dealer and you don't know whats available? WTF" But hey I got my bike with 0.1mi on the clock

    I was at a dealership(kawi-yama) on a parts run for work, while waiting, I asked if they had the new versys.....I was told they dont carry suzuki! Anyways, I was shown the fz and the rest is history in the making.

    Re: Where did you find your bike??

    I was shopping for a small sport tourer to replace my VFR.. I found my bike on Craigslist, set up EXACTLY the way I wanted it.. (except I really wanted a red one) It had the full Givi bag set up, heated grips, and was toured by a nice lady a couple hours from me, and maintained by her boyfriend who was a stickler for good maintenance. I took it for a quick test ride, put money down, and drove over the next night and loaded it in my truck..

    Been a great bike!! And the price was pretty much what other used FZ6's were going for without all the goodies that were included with this one!!

    Re: Where did you find your bike??

    I was on my second cruiser, a '98 Honda Aero 1100 and wanted something different. I saw a guy on CL had the '06 FZ6 looking to trade it. I rode over and gave him my bike plus $500 for his. Cosmetically it is rough - rusty hardware, chemical stains on the cluster, etc. but I figured I was new to this style, so what the hell. I thought it was a very fair trade. My '98 had about 25k on the the clock and was pretty much spotless. His '06 was a little beat with around 23k, but seemed to run fine.

    Best motorcycle move I've made.

    Re: Where did you find your bike??

    2 1/2 hr drive to pick up a (fast) blue 06' i found on Craigslist. I got the guy to come down $400 and throw in his First Gear heated pants/jacket/gloves (listed on same ad for $300) and had him fill it up before I paid I took $$ for his asking price though cause I wasn't leaving without it (unless it was misrepresented in the ad) 5k miles in perfect condition.

    Re: Where did you find your bike??

    I sat on lots of bikes at several stealerships, almost buying new Ninja with cosmetic damage from test drive. They wouldn't drop the price as much as I thought AND I kept sitting on bikes just seeing how they fit. Slowly it came to me that every time I befriended the FZ it fit. Almost bought new 09 but then a C/L add had the 08 Raven w/3000 miles. It was two hours away and I got there and it was 4,188 miles! Errrrrr. . . I picked it up the next weekend after very short rain ride.
    08 Raven w/a few mods...
    R6 Forks, R1 Rear Shock (revalved), 6 Ignition Advance, S1 CAT free Header, SS Mid-Pipe, 2Bro Exhaust, AIS block off plates, Bazzaz Z-Fi Fuel Controller & Z-AFM Data Logger, Air Box mod, CR10E Plugs, 48-Tooth Rear Sprocket, FZ1 Bars, Spider Grips, Adj levers, Powder Coated -Triple, Bars & Rear Sets, Solid mounted rear-sets w/knurled pegs, Dual Headlight, Tail Tidy, LED Combo Brake & Directionals, LED POD lights & Tinted PUIG Wind Screen!
