I guess I can not get over my two wheeled bike craze. Pedaled my rear off, over 6,000 miles last year...

http://memimage.cardomain.net/member_images/11/web/2567000-2567999/2567589_13_full.jpg


So I went to buy another bicycle and was thinking for a few more thousand (yes a few more thousand) I could have a motorcycle, so with the wifes permission I bought... :)

07 Yamaha FZ1...

Yes I plan on racing at the track some. Mark I MAY be able to take you, lol. :judge: :) The bike produces 130rwhp, mid to upper 10's in the quarter, from what I have read. It can be programmed and produce 150rwhp with some mods, but it's fast enough (for now). CAN YOU BELIEVE I TURNED TO TWO WHEELS FOR A HOBBY?? Honestly, the price was right and I always was interested in owning a motorcycle. :)

Lots of new faces here-just want to say hello to all, I share the passion of the Camaro with you. It was a tough thing to part with my car.

I had a mishap with my computer. A virus deleted most off of my pictures...car, family, etc.. What a real bummer.

I still can remember my car like it was yesterday. :cry:

http://memimage.cardomain.net/member_images/11/web/2567000-2567999/2567589_12_full.jpg

So how has everyone been? Update me with some highlights. I really miss not having my car and hanging out with everyone. Again, thought you would get a kick out of this, lol. :jest:

Hey Todd! Welcome back!

That's a fine piece of machinery, be careful and look out for the people who won't be looking out for you. Hope to see you out at the track this year :)

So you went & bought a 10 sec bike? Damn, that's worst than buying a Vette Todd! :jest:

Nice to hear from you again FINALLY! Judging by the pics, you bought a house too. Cool. My car should be back in my garage by this coming weekend to do the final prep for the Roadster Show. Stop by if you're bored.

Hey Todd! Welcome back!
Thank's, I will keep an eye out for all of the cages on the road.

Hey Todd, how's it been going? Long time no see.
You still have the purple Firebird?

great all around bike. are those things fuel injected now?
Thanks, yes they are FI. I am old so I needed an upright bike.

Glad to see you back around again, Todd! Looking forward to you bringing that thing around the shows now.
I plan on hitting a few shows with you guys, or going a few times to the track for fun, guess two wheels are better than none.

That FZ1 is sweet. One of the guys I went riding with last year has one of them. That is good to know, I am new to the market. The Bandit was going to be my first choice but I could not wait...my wife took an interest so this seemed the best at the moment with the research time I had.

So you went & bought a 10 sec bike? Can you believe this, lol. I needed something, I was twiching from the lack of having some sort of toy. Had to be black. I drove by Saturday to see if your door was up but did not have much time. I read that your in the big show! Congrats :chug: I plan on being there Sunday on the last day of the Roadster show to check out your car. It is that time of the year, work is killer. Sunday 3-3 after work I will be down there for sure to catch up with you. :)

You have been missed.
Thanks, you have always been a great friend. Have you been racing and showing...I am sure you have. Update me. :)


It is good hearing from you guys, sorry I really have not been in touch like I should. Honestly it is tough with out a F-body, just felt strange. I really feel great having a new hobby. Karen is very excited to go riding.

Hey I am all about it...list out some of the major mods you guys have done or accomplishments. It will save me searching forever. :hail: Give me the top 5 or what ever. It will be interesting knowing, it has been a long while.

Not much new - in the Roadster Show (as you know), which made me install polished SS tubes in place of the top rubber ones, and buy a new air box (plenum), & installed a fire supression system for the open road race I'm doing in June (I guess that was 2 at once) = 5. Next

Nice bike bro. I too just recently got a bike. I bought an 07 GSXR 750. Those F1's are a nice all around bike. You got to love the power and comfort to go with it. :judge:

Enjoy and ride safe. BTW your car looks real clean......

This bike will keep me out of the mod mode, use it and that is that. :eyes:

So custom bent plumbing, nice, that is awesome, a metal plenum, fire suppression system, holy cow...serious as always about safety. I need to stop by and see the beast. :judge:

Not really a shiney type bike. Black and flames do go together, lol.

Thanks. If I take enough interest I would by a track bike, though I doubt it. You have an awesome bike too.

I thought you had been eaten alive or something, you just fell off the face of the earth.

Nothing much new for me. Live in an appartment now, upgraded to girlfriend v5.0 (BIG UPGRADE I might add :D ), and trying to spend more time with the rest of these monkeys.

You still have the purple Firebird?

Actually.. I have two purple Firebirds now (I bought a purple '98 WS6 6-speed), and a purple '04 GTO.

Yeah, I know. :jest:

Many mods and a paint job later, here's the Formula...

Man these mean alot. Even my son and my fat butt are in them. :hail: :hail:

I haven't got the chance to show them together, no... honestly, I dunno if I ever will, either.. that's some serious work. I tried to do it for the All-Pontiac show last season, but then the T/A had clutch issues, and I spent way too much time detailing the Birds to make the GTO look good. Maybe after I move to some place that makes it easier to detail them.. but out here in the forest, forget it.

Hell, I still haven't really got a good picture of all three cars together.

This is the only one I have, and the GTO is dirty.. LOL

Welcome back. 2 wheels are just as much fun. As Mikey said, we went riding with a guy that we know that has an 04 FZ1 yellow. He and I would go riding quite abit when I had my Bandit. Both are great sport touring bikes. There are times I miss my Bandit, but the need for speed over took that. I currently have an 05 GSXR 1000. Enjoy it and keep rubber side down.

The GSXR 1000 is a sweet looking bike. I bet it flys. In a few years if I progress I may get a Yahama R1. I've been reading about the improvements on it and it seems like a nice bike. I am still to new to motorcycles to see that far down the pipe. :)

Thanks. I'm not as much into the twisty riding, and primarily drag race it when not commuting in the summer. It's stretched and modded (165 rwhp). Maybe next year the wife will let me put the NOS on it. :)
