    Re: New member welcome thread..

    Hi from Brisbane Australia.
    Just bought a 2006 FZ6 in red. Picking it up tomorrow hopefully. Been a while since I've ridden and decided to ease back in to riding on something that has a bit of power for when I'm more confident again but docile enough to commute on through the week. I don't think I'll do many mods at this stage other than a good wash and polish the exhaust headers to bring the gold look back. It already has an aftermarket exhaust, top box, heated handle bars and adjustable levers. The front forks had some pre-load added via a stack of washers and it feels pretty good right now.

    Re: New member welcome thread..

    May as well say hi as I am essentially a new member once more. I got a 2006 FZ6 back in 2011 and remember using a forum quite a bit. In 2013 I got in a bike accident (pedal, not motor) and I havent been on it much since.

    Well I plan to change that and the barn ornament will be getting a bit of an overhaul and should be on the road soon. Hoping to find others that may like joining and helping me on this little escapade. I will post the shameful pics soon.

    Re: New member welcome thread..

    Kingman Lim, Oakland, CA, USA just picked up an '08 FZ6 to compliment a 2013 Yamaha Super Tenere. I'm semi-conflicted owning two motorcycles at once (w/o intention to sell one).

    Previous motorcycles in reverse (descending) order (reading list from bottom up makes more sense):
    '05 Suzuki DL650 (great all-around motorcycle work-horse, getting wiser and more practical with age)
    '03 Yamaha YZF600R (I had to get back on another one of these engines!)
    '99 Nighthawk 750 (Air-cooled, hydraulic-valves [low maintenance] Honda stable staple)
    '95 Honda VFR750 (A marvel of Honda Engineering, way ahead of its time, a blast to ride)
    '00 Yamaha YZF600R (sleek, rugged, sporty, real-world alternative to the R6)
    '92 Honda CBR600F2 (Reliable, lightweight, agile, Honda race-bred engineering)
    '88 Honda VFR700F2 Interceptor (bought it with over 100k miles on the odometer, I learned to appreciate Honda's V4)
    '89 Yamaha FZR600 (Race-modded custom, high-performance but had some mechanical issues)
    '87 Honda CBR600F1 Hurricane (Fell in love with the ride, but low-sided to learn the hard way)

    The '05 Suzuki was great; I was going to get another V-Strom (either 650 or 1000), but I like the Tenere with shaft drive, inverted forks, spoked wheels. I've already taken it on a few adventures. But now, for around town, the 600 lbs. of the Tenere didn't have me looking forward to backing it out of the garage.

    I was looking at adding either an FZ6, VFR, or CB500 to the stable as more of a city motorcycle to compliment the Tenere, and I got a good deal on a local one.

    So now I'm back on that Yamaha Inline-4 that essentially was on the YZF, only now it's fuel injected.

    Riding it around today I'm happy I swooped up on one.. better savor it while it lasts, right?

    Nice to meet you.

    WELCOME new members!

    Klimber - I can relate to your dilemma. I returned to riding when I bought my 08 FZ6 in 2013. Since then I've added an FJR, for longer rides and more knee comfort for the wife, and recently a WR450 plated for the street for - well, you know.

    The FJR is an awesome ride and a rocket. The WR is amazing me with it's grunt. But the FZ6 remains my favorite.
