Thumbs up 2001 Yamaha FZ1

Still in the breakin period, but the bike seems to deliver power very smoothly...suspension is set very soft so needs to be adjusted as it's sort of like riding a rocking horse when getting on the brakes or on the throttle. But this thing feels very light in the corners, extremely flickable...bars give great leverage and the ergos are very comfortable.

Bike comes equiped with stock Bridgestone 020's...wish they were the 010's though. Also, the seat is angled slightly forward so you are constantly sliding towards the tank...may be I'm just used to my old Corbin saddle...

Can't wait to really wick it up...
