Someone asked me about a blue '02 FZ1 at Village Cycle in Starkville. Anyone know the previous owner - only blue FZ1 I know was from Jackson, but I thought it was slightly newer.

I know nothing about it, but will be glad to go check it out.

If you happen to ride by there, have a look. I was just taking a long shot at finding the original owner to get the history of the bike.

I'll try and get by there tomorrow after school. I'll ask Carl about the PO if I see him.

The above is subject to change if I forget.

It looks pretty clean. There is evidence of one zero speed drop on the left hand side.

On another note, Village Cycle can suck my left nut. I walked around, looked under, poked, and prodded that bike for at least 5 minutes and not one person acknowledged my presence. They seem to be getting out of the motorcycle business judging from the quad to bike ratio. I wouldn't piss on them if they were on fire. If ever a shop deserved to go under it's them.

i bought a bike from them through the parts guy once. Their sales people have always be crap. if I go in there I go strait to Patric in parts. I deal with no one else up there unless it's Carl's wife,, she's always nice, Carl is always hit or miss.

It's all good. The bike really does look pretty clean for a 12 year old ride. A little rub here, a little speck of corrosion there, but all in all, really nice.

Sorry about that little rant earlier. Every time I go in that place I come out mad. The easy solution is not to go in there any more.

I've never had a good experience there either, but I very frequently leave dealers mad.

That's always been my philosophy. I think I've been there 3x in the last 15 years. 2 were to have tires mounted. The other was to help some dude who lived across the street pick up his new bike to learn on....
