I test rode that FZ1 and was dissapointed at the vibes. Mirrors were usueless do to so much vibration. My hands didn't like it either. I fly helicopters, I get enough vibes at work. Don't need none on my time off.

i went to have my bike serviced, and took a ride on a used GSA. Next week I picked up my old bike and a new GSA. Rode to old bike one time and sold it. Never looked back, and won't ride anything but the GSA. I did have to put a different seat on it, to be comfortable.

Only on paved roads. I'm too much fun with my road burner.

my baby girl is 13, I guess I better start doing some pushups and work on my crazy eyed stare.
Looks are deceiving... I weigh 220 right now, 240, 2 weeks back. Last weekend my oldest daughter and her beau went with me to a BMW/Ducati/Triumph dealer in Houston. It was his first time in a moto dealership and a great opportunity for me to be labeled a cool dad.

No way, in about 5 years, my girls will be young women, hopefully going to college and my boy and I should be off riding the TAT.

I should considering mine's sitting in the garage with a trashed bottom end at 46K miles. Guess that's what happens to most of my bikes. I ride them like they're all track bikes so they aren't long for this world.

Your spoiled by that DR. I'm actually amazed at the DR, has the best mirrors of any bike I've ever ridden actually. With everything rubber mounted the bike really doesn't vibe much at all.
