My 2002 FZ1 - Liquid Silver (pics)

OMG! This bike is gorgeous. It was such a totally cool experience getting another new bike! OMG OMG OMG (Like a dumb Blonde LOL) Here's a short story:

I've been waiting for almost 2 months for this one dealer from out of town to get me this bike! He said he could get me that good deal and all, $7,800 which turned into $8351.00 after all the tax and stuff. So he calls me Last Thursday and says, "The Warehouse says it will ship on the 9th." So then I'm like, ok cool, next week I'll go get insurance and all the BS and come up some time next weekend. I'm minding my own Business Friday morning in dream land about 10AM and my cell phone is ringing off the hook. This guy is like, did I wake you? GRRR...It's the Salesman and he said he got to work late this morning and just found out that my FZ1 came in on a truck that mroning at 8:30! I was like, "OMG OMG OMG, I'll be at the Insurance Company and the Bank today, be up Saturday to get her"

So I make a bunch of phone calls and things start rolling. Mean while I had some work to do for a friend that I knew would take me until after lunch. So I make it over to the Insurance company, convenently located in the Local Yamaha Dealer where I live I walk in there and the salesman that sold me my 2001 R6 says,
"What are you doing here?"
"Insurance "
"On What?"
"My New Bike"
"What kind?"
"FZ1, 2002"
He makes this pouty face , "You didn't ask me?"
"Ummmm"
"Where from then?

Long story short, he's had a Silver FZ1 since Monday in the warehouse, still crated. "Ummm, match the price and give me some extras no charge?" hehe, Lower Cawling that makes the bottom of the bike look fat! $250 So I said, where do I sign!!! I called the other guy and canceled, they never ran my credit card for the deposit anyway! LMAO

At 4 PM they pulled my bike out of the crate, see the pics. 5:15, I was back with the check from the bank. The bike was already done! So I got to ride it up the street and back, only about a mile. But OMG this bike has gobs of power.

So then on Saturday, my GF took me back and she took more pictures as I picked up my new toy See other pictures.

Me sitting on my new Toy Saturday Afternoon

Finally she's mine! Oh, no shorts with a naked bike!! I already burned my leg on the tail pipe, about 20 minutes later LMAO. Keep in mind guys, that's only the 3rd time I've ever ridden in shorts. 1st time in Myrtle Beach fro Bike week, 2nd time I got the original Scare from my R6, and now I've got a Red spot just below the 1st scare. Normally it's jeans and Leather.

No comments, I don't like having my picture taken at all!

Honda...Thanks... The bad thing about it is that my room mate has one of his friends stuff in my garage right now cause she's moving. So I don't have any room to put my new bike in there too. So the FZ1 is sitting 10 minutes away at my grandmothers I have to take the car or the R6 to go get my other bike so I can ride it LMAO
