How big is the footprint? I’ve been looking for something to trailer up to the mountains once a month or so.This thing is stupid amounts of fun. Took it on some twisties that follow along the coastline by my house and had a fucking blast. Pic sucks, I didn’t have a lot of time tonight and wanted to spend as much of it on the bike as possible.
Thinking about a GPR steering stabilizer for the FZ09. Sometimes front end feels a little light.
I can't justify the price on the GPR, I'd rather chance death
How tall are you? Does it feel smaller than a modern 600cc Sport Bike?
Leaning that way only because they tend to be lower displacement, easier for me to work on, and more interesting. I should just get off my dead ass and tow my bike in to the shop, it's just a hassle.are you looking at vintage stuff?
cops around here don't really care too much about bikes
Did a Royal Enfield demo day. Holy crap the classic 350 is fun to ride. Although it is not fast the engine is great. Massive torque from the bottom and a great thump at idle yet no vibes when you are riding. I was smiling in my helmet the whole time. Less than $5K I am seriously thinking about adding one to the garage.
Bought the bike with suspension already upgraded and ECU flashed.Early years of FZ09's didn't have traction control, ABS, had a softer suspension, and a twitchy engine mapping. Combine that with a pretty lively engine and you could potentially get into issues. Though unless you're riding and being very aggressive AND experience head shake due to it, a steering stabilizer wouldn't be high on my list. I'd probably do tires/suspension, flash ECU and get seat time.
CB750 is a classic.. If you can afford it, I say go for it.Question for you guys. A friend is selling a 1973 CB750 SOHC for $2500 and he asked me if I had any interest. I have very little motorcycle experience outside of some limited time on dirt bikes and very limited time on a GXR600 when I was much younger. The bike needs a little work but runs alright, carbs need some work, and I've been half-heartedly looking for a cafe racer project for a bit now to work on in my free time. So my question is what would OT do here? Am I going to kill myself on a 750, albeit an older one, as my first real bike?
