Hello mates, I'm new to this forum and relatively new to road riding. I have been riding dirt bikes for the better part of 15 years, been road endorsed for 10 years and had a few summers of riding a supermoto. This FZ1 is my first road specific bike, and so far it's been a lot of fun. I've got a 2004 KTM 300 two smoke, and this 2007 FZ1 with XIL silencer, and touring wind screen. I've put about 1500 miles on it since purchasing it two months ago. I plan on doing some longer rides (up to Canada this summer, my roommate just got an fz6) as well as commuting to work at school. Love the bike and look forward to riding with a few of you.
