So we go looking for a bike yesterday for the wife, after a 10yr break she wants to get riding again. So off to the Yamaha dealer we go. And to our suprise it was test ride day here in Kamloops. So all I have to say is for those of you that have said the FZ09 is a blast to ride..... you weren't kidding. I think there may be one in my future (next year).
But as for the wife, we are looking at the FZ07. Very capable for what she is after in a bike. Ton of fun to ride and at $7300, its a bargin for a new bike for her. Bare bone suspension but a great town bike, and will definitely be great for the day trips we take to the parents place in Oliver. For anyone looking for an upgrade from a small displacement bike or a good all rounder first bike, this may be a good choice.
