Just Signed Up Thanks To My Wife
« on: 20 March 2013, 08:57:18 PM »
Hi there,
Thought i'd introduce myself. My name is James and thanks to my lovely wife Heather, I am now the proud owner of a 98 Fazer600. It's the bike i've always wanted since I was 13. I'm 27 now so it's been a long time coming!
Basically I came home on Saturday to find a Black Fazer on the drive way which she had bought from a member of this forum, who has kept the bike in near perfect condition and only 22k miles on the clock. The FZS has it's MOT booked in for Friday and I really can't wait to take it for a ride, looks like my days of riding my trusty Suzuki GS500 are over, so that will be up for sale soon.
I am also restoring a 1987 Kawasaki GPZ900R, which so far has cost me £2000 pounds, but I hope to turn a few heads in the Summer.
Anyway good to meet you all.
James.  :D

Hi James!
 
Welcome to the forum!
 
We've all heard so much about you it's like you're one of the family already!
 
Really glad you like the bike and if there are any questions you've got then everyone here is happy to help. A quick search will usually answer a lot of questions as a lot of things have been covered before. We all want a wife like yours, you must be awesome at something for her to buy you a bike!  :lol
 
All the best for the MOT and take care,
 
Chris
 
P.S. get some pics up!  :D

It wouldn't be fun if it was easy, I just wish it wasn't this much fun.

Ha ha. Thanks for the friendly welcome. It looks like a great forum. Thanks to all of you for pointing Heather in the right direction. I was gob smacked that she had got me it, I just need to think of something for her now! Maybe a holiday or something.
I will post some pics asap maybe even a few of the GPZ too, if you have ever watched the film TopGun i'ts the bike Tom Cruise rides in the film. I have spent £900 quid just respraying the fairings and tank to match the colour scheme from the film!!

No problem, you're a focer now  8)
 
You will also need to familiarise yourself with the focer salute incase you see another one of our brethren on the road.  :D

Nice one Chris. I'll practice the salute, I ususally ride to Squire's Motorcycle Cafe, near Leeds on a weekend (idealy in sunny weather so I might meet some local members there or recruit some new ones. Fazers are popular there.

I'm sure you will, it would appear that us focers are everywhere. the members map certainly seems to say so  :D

Welcome to the forum ya lucky foccer  ;) 
When I fart, the boy's in the pub call me Top Gun, think it's more to do with 'take my breath away' tho.
Look up the springmeet thread in the events section, not far from Leeds and great fun.


Hope you enjoy a great bike  :)
Better to stand and look a fool than speak and prove it !
If it aint broke, I'll fix it till it is !!

Haha I think she's pretty much cleared out now, I like Ducati's but would hate to keep up with the costs of running one.

Thanks, it's been a frustrating week, with all this snow, not had the chance to MOT it. So the first ride lingers on!
