FZS600 Fazer / Re: Fantastic Fazers
« on: 06 August 2012, 12:40:46 AM »
New to the FOC,got my FZS 600 (Nov 2006 plate) 27th Aug 2011 having passed my big bike test on 15th Aug,hadn't ridden for 29 years and then at the ripe old age of 48 decided it was time to get back on two wheels for some fun and freedom before popping off from this crazy world.
 
My mate who has a Yamaha dealership had pointed me in the direction of a training school to do the CBT,Mod one and Two tests,the theory test I did on my own practising online. He had a mouthwatering selection of Yamahas but one stood out,he pointed it out over the all the others,she only had 2699 miles on the clock having had only one careful lady owner who had now emigrated.
 
The feeling I had when I passed my Mod one test and then rang the showroom to ask if it was still there and could I pay £200 deposit made my heart race!  I soon realised that having passed my test taht the heady days of my youth on a Suzuki GT125 were no use and to get out on her was the only answer-so I did. Each trip added something to my experience and still does.
 
Now some 4500 spare time miles on I love her more than ever,she is half faired and Lava red-lush beyond belief. I am not mechanically minded,just love being able to ride somewhere,stop,eat and have a chat with other bikers-so good for the soul.
 
I could write hundreds more words so will close by wishing everyone safe biking......
