I remember that ride.  That garbage suspension kept pushing you off your line.  That would kill my confidence.

I think they improved the FZ09 suspension in 2016 or 2017, better but still not great.  It would be cool if Yamaha would make an "R" version, like the Street Triple.

That would be a selling point and worth some extra coin. Between the suspension that was about as good as what comes on a Walmart mountain bike and the hard as a rock no grip tires there was just no desire to even try and ride a fun pace

I kinda wonder if the MT10 suspension would work on the MT09. The stock KYB on the MT10 seems decent. I've heard the MT09 is an amazing bike once the suspension gets sorted out. 

Ive heard that too but the sorted price is almost half what the bike costs. The suspension and tires both were horrible and the front brake was never consistent or remotely good. Absolutely loved the motor though.

I'm comfortable using too much horsepower and riders aids to compensate for my age. My current bike isn't close to being my favorite but it sure is comfortable, for that it gets to stay a couple more years.

You should have no problems making the new bike just as comfortable as any bike. Bonus is that it won't run out of steam up top unlike the tractor twins.

I've witnessed Pauly haul some major mail on a cheap ass fz6 on contimotion tires through 3 states. He had the biggest friggin grin on his face when I caught up to him of all the rides I've been on and that includes one of the first spirited rides on the multi. Pretty sure he'll be just fine

Nothing up top is what kept me alive chasing you in GA and TN. This little 600 should be just as forgiving, hopefully.

That bastard put up a good run, though. It took some riding to catch his tail. That was a fast car.

R6 or R1 shocks fit on that bad basic bitch?  you should've gotten a street triple and joined trm8tr and me on the light side of the force.

It's getting Ohlins and I don't have any love left in me for European bikes at the moment. My current situation requires a bike that will start and run without failure or need of a service every other oil change. I am done with all of that nonsense.

I looked into that before suggesting Racetech. The R1 shock takes a bit of doing and I think a fork swap takes some custom milled spacers. A full front end swap would probably work out though.

Ricor Intiminators are worth looking into.  

I've used them before.  Installation is simple.

You'll get no argument from me. Suspension is probably the most important part of a bike after the rider.

I found it and put it in a jar to bring to trackdays to remind the rest of us what could've been if you weren't so responsible.

No one is going to believe this but it is probably my 2004 ZX12R. I always leave my bikes stock for the most part but I bought that bike used for a really good deal and it had a full exhaust system with a power commander and it had been dyno tuned, it also had the gearing changed to -1/+2. It was the most rowdy obnoxious thing in the world to ride but it was a blast. The crazy thing would get to 167MPH right now then just bang off of the rev limiter.

I have tried to duplicate that ride several times because it was so much fun and have only been successful completing it when by myself. Something always seems to happen to cut the route short.

I won't ever forget that off road excursion and can easily find it on the map. It's on Wolf Pen Gap Road, going from Suches to 19 at Lake Winfield Scott Dam. Biggest crash I never had.

Right. 

Ive rode Mach Retard enough with you that I knew something wasn’t right when you crested that hill. I was well versed in your braking habits and the way you hit them hard at that crest then Tim lifted the rear I remember vividly saying oh fuck out loud and grabbing everything I had before I could even see the other side. Without a doubt the biggest ass pucker I’ve ever had
