Hi all, same here another newbie, I own a met grey 1000 Gen 2 - ace bike, toured around Scotland this summer (over 1500) miles and it never missed a beat. Had a Tiger 1050 before that and although a great touring bike and engine, when pushed became scary. The Fazer handles in another league in comparison, combined with an engine that wants to get you into trouble (I should know better at 41).

Wife also had a FZ6 last year which I got to try a few times on early Sunday mornings, also a top bike, loved the flickability of it.

Just finding my way around the site, looking for info on switching to a K & N / BMC / Pipercross filter and possibly pipewerx can to save a bit of weight.   See you.  :)

Looney tune
