Smile Back From The Dead, LOL. Thought You Would Get A Kick Out Of What I Bought...

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

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. 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.

Click the image to open in full size.

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.

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!

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.

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 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.

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 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.

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. 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.

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.

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

JUMPIN' JESUS ON A POGO STICK!!

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 ), and trying to spend more time with the rest of these monkeys.

Yeah, I know.
