Hello all. I'm new to cycles, and so far I love them! I just bought a used 2002 Yamaha FZ1 this past Tuesday, and have put 600 miles on it so far! I chose the FZ1 because it's almost a dual purpose bike. I take my wife for rides, I like the upright position being available, and it still has plenty of power and 'fun factor'. This is my first bike, so hopefully I'll learn to handle it a little better. It has way too much power for me so far, but I'm a big guy, so I'll learn tricks on riding better. The bike came with a D & D exhaust, which I love. This forum has so far been very helpful and informative, and very fun to read. Also, I'm new to the terminology related to sportbikes, so if someone could explain what a "squid" is, it would be much appreciated. By the way, my bike is stock except for the exhaust, so hopefully you guys won't pick on me too much yet.
