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?"
"My New Bike"
He makes this pouty face
, "You didn't ask me?"
"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
