I blame BMW-K.  But I think then he was Lawn Dart.  At least i didn't go italian -- that would have been more expensive. . ..

Loved it when I brought it home like this.

Then the SM bug bit, and I always liked Yamaha's white/red graphics.

Yup, it's a FZ-09. I got it in mid October so I don't have a lot of miles on it. The first impression is how narrow and light it is. It's like a dirt bike. The engine is magical. Tons of torque and revs so easily. Then there is the sound. Wow. Some complain about the twitchy throttle mode A but it's alright by me. Some complain about the smallish tank (3.5 gal). I say no big deal. It's a lot of bike for the price and I can see why Yamaha dealers can't keep them in stock.

I like everything but the headlight.  I'll be glad when the droopy dog headlight fad passes.

My '73 AT-125. I was fourteen when these came out. It was the bike I wanted but couldn't have. I finally got one in 2000 at age 40. It was a non-running, no-title bike listed on Ebay. I just bid on it kind of as a lark and ended up winning. I put a few hundred in it, a lot of hours, and got it running and titled. It's still going strong. I'm thinking about selling it now...

In 1977 I paid $1,200 for my Chappy Red RD400. loved this bike. Coffman chambers, DG gold anodized head, Boyesen reeds, drilled out discs done at Rick Racer's in Huntington Beach I think, piranha 1/4 fairing, clips ons, rearsets, I don't remember the make of the seat I put on it?

Sept. 2017 first ride. My 09 ABS 13k miles for $6100 Only thing not stock when I bought it were the Beowulf pipes and I am not complaining. In my opinion the best cans this bike could have. Previous owner babied the crap out of her! Sold her because he had multiple bikes and needed the space. Lucky me, I am sure he is sorry he sold it! ;D
