Fazer 1000/FZ1 corner / Re: what would you do?
« on: 24 September 2012, 09:26:50 AM »
I rode Bandits for the last 6 years 600's, 1200 and 1250 - lovely ride loadsa grunt whenever you need it.  Swapped for an '09 Fazer 1000 and don't regret the change - it takes a couple of days for the smile to fade every time I ride out.  The Fazer is superior in every way - if your feel the need to change go for the after '07 Fazer. You won't regret the change.  Its a different class from the rest.
Good luck with it whatever you decide.
Be cool - stay alive..

I'm not a fast, racer type, but I do ride in all weathers and don't really worry about it. I just slow down.
 
Like someone else said, you need to relax your upper body and relax your grip on the bars. Use your knees against the tank to give you a feeling of stability when turning. If your tyres are in good nick and are proper sports-tourer types, they'll probably outperform your skills, so don't think they're suddenly gonna give way under you - they're not!
 
Just avoid hard accelleration and braking. People will tell you to avoid manholes and white lines, but if your speed is constant, there's no need to slalom around everything as though they're bags of nails  :lol
Absolutely on target - nothing to add - man you've said it all.....

Just introudcing myself - I'm a new boy to this Forum so if the message ends suddenly its because I hit the wrong key.!!
Been riding on and off since I was 16 (long time ago) - and the current bike is a ''58 Reg Fazer FZ1A (whats the Gen1 ) part I keep seeing??
Bike is RED and is the match of the one shown in the Forum Logo as far as I can see. Bought in January this year and still loving it.
I live in Morden Surrey and don't see too many Fazers around here.  Where you all from ?
