    I agree the 600 out of the gate is asking for trouble. My son rode the baby Ninja for a season and got acclimated to riding. The 250 did become slow quickly. After a year he moved to a 600 and has been good, although it still worries me every time he throws a leg over the bike. We have all been doing this for years and know how quickly shit can go pear shaped. Back to the FZ1... they just don’t get a lot of love, even though it may be one of the best all around motorcycles ever made. It’s comfortable, fast, handles as good as anything, and maybe most importantly... you get liter bike engine and power for Nighthawk 750 insurance rates. What’s not to love?

    Noon, Bolivar, Relaxed pace ride... probably

    Traxxion AK20’s up front and a Penske rear will do the trick. I believe the fork is KYB 43mm unit, which should make it easy to find rebound/pre-load adjustable caps. They may be able to add compression adjustment, but not sure of the financial commitment.
  9. I am trying to convince @DerekClouser to organize a ride... even if it’s a little loose. It’s the only way we all get to see each other in the wild.

    Thanks How are you getting along with the Tracer GT (FJ09)? FJR is more than likely in my future, but I have not ruled out the Tracer/FJ with bags. The light weight alone makes it appealing.
