Just purchased a 2008 FZ6 S2 Fazer, been out for the first time this afternoon.


At the ripe old age of 54 I decided to fulfill a lifelong ambition... did my CBT, took lessons, bought a little Honda 125cc, carried on taking lessons, did my theory, mod 1 and finally mod 2, passed Tuesday just gone 🙂, sold my Honda yesterday (Autotrader), bought the Yam today, from a local dealer... phew!


Really looking forward to getting out and enjoying riding, I’ve got no bike type wisdom so thought it would be a good idea to join this forum to pick everyone’s brains and to chat.

Congratulations on acquiring your Category A entitlement. :)  Am sure you'll pickup a lot of useful info on this forum.

We've been fortunate with excellent weather over the summer, plus still very nice weather for getting out on the motorcycle(s) heading towards the middle of October!
Sensible choice with the Yamaha, adaptable machines.

125 to 600 is a big step up, and you'll notice the power. Take it easy (do I sound like your Mum? 😀)

Thanks for the welcome all,
I’m taking it nice and easy, commuting to work occasionally has been a good learning curve.

Welcome, you're at the right place.

...I mean, having bought a shitty, break-down prone good for recycling and not much else motorcycle, you'd need all the advice you can get...





Joking.  :)
Enjoy your bike and take it easy, especially in the spring, if you make a winter break from riding that is.
Most things done in a hurry need to be done again - patiently.
