    All right guys and gals...Here she is. My (NEW) ride.

    Finally after years of being Lazy (no guesses needed, why?) - I've FINALLY got a NEW (ish) bike.

    Meet Black Beauty (AKA Bellezza Nera). Just picked her up during my lunch break so haven't had a chance to take new pics so using the ones from the advert.

    Too excited to wait....

  10. Congrats mate.
    I have a soft spot for FZ1s, as I put 75,000 klms on my old 2003 Gen 1 and it didn't miss a beat.

    I still miss that bike.

    Check out the FZ1 owners association for all you need to know about these bikes. It's a great resource.

  13. Well done. If you lived in Sydney you could join the little group of FZ1 owners who occasionally ride together.

    Two things looking at the second pic:
    It has been overfilled with oil. If the bike was on a centre stand that level would be almost right. On the side stand you shouldn't see any oil in the viewing glass.
    What is the pipe with red end sticking out from under the seat? That isn't standard.
    And I also notice the rear fender has been eliminated.

  14. I'll get an 'expert' to look at it tomorrow. Thanks for pointing that out.
  15. It looks like the connection for a battery charger...

  18. Every FZ1 has to come with one of those pipe smoke thingys
  19. A bit :) I'm like a excited puppy, my CBR500 has just over 2.6K kms on the clock. I will be riding it for 3 more years while on restricted licence. Yet I'm looking for my "grown up" bike. 1L bike? Unlikely, but one can look and admire :)
