Donk, that looks exactly the same as the one my buddy has right down to the bags, except he has a slip-on and a sargeant seat on his , absolutely Great bike ! Big part of why i bought my fjr. I’ll never forget a ride home from gingerman raceway in Michigan down m40 on my 81 cbx (pre-fjr) where we were passing long lines of cars. I felt pretty good because I was keeping up with him on his fz1 and he used to road race bikes in his youth.
On a couple of occasions I redlined the cbx in 5th (around 139-140mph) several times and felt good that the ol’girl was able to pace the newer fz1, that is until 1 time he just kept on it and simply left me at 140mph,,,, at which point reality set in and I just said f-it , slowed down to humane speeds as we’d just done a corner where the cbx “drifted/slipped” from the inside radius to the outside,,,,,, I told him I’d just meet him at home.
They call that “stupid shite”.... fun while it lasted and thank goodness no one got hurt but I’m sure a couple of the cagers we passed had/have a much lower opinion of bikers.
Donk, you’re gonna love that fz1 !
Red 2014A, the fastest color !
Ride more,, worry less !
