I started out riding on a 1100 Honda Shadow which was a great cruiser! After a couple of years I wanted something faster and with better handling. I gave the Honda to my Dad to get him back in to riding after a 25 year break, and I picked up a Raven 2009 FZ1.
    Ive had the FZ1 since February and have done a lot of modifications to it since than. I've done the airbox mod, BMC race filter, Ivans flies, AIS plugged up, Power commander V, Auto tune, FCE, Yosh R-77 exhaust, Proton Flushmounts, LED's, fender eliminator, speedo healer, 16t front sprocket, rear set washer mod, and fz6 foot rests. The bike is now running incredible and I think I'm done for now with the engine Mods. Next up will be the brakes and suspension.
    I ride to work a couple times a week and try to get a couple hundred mile ride in on the weekends. I havent done any track days yet, but it's something I'm looking to get into. Other than riding motorcycles I love to snowboard and play golf occasionally.

Since then i have tried to find another motorcycle the would be better for me and the search continues. Hopefully in the next couple years i can pick up a dual sport and do a little off roadin!!
    Welcome guys! Glad to have you aboard. We love photos, so post some up for us soon!! Enjoy the forum. Billy.

    My name is Dan and I'm from Cincinnatii OH. I've been lurking a while and taking it all in. Lots of good info to learn from. :yes:

    I just purchased my 2008 FZ1 from Sky Powersports in Kathleeen, FL on June 30th, 2009. Since then I've taken it to Deal's Gap, Cherohola Skyway, Highway 160 over Black Mountain and too many Appalachian mountain roads too list...

    It's pushing 2500 miles currently and the smile I get riding her hasn't changed a bit!

    I've added a Yoshimura R77 full system, GYTR braided lines, Graves EXUP eliminator, frame sliders and a Ventura 51 liter rack/bag combo for touring.

    And since I know these intros are worthless without 'em, here are the pics:

    Hey Chris, welcome to the site. Happy to have another FZ owner along for the ride. Very nice GenI you got there. Love the Yoshi exhaust. They sound great.

    Hi All
    I’ve been using this site for a while now so I guess it’s about time I posted on this thread.

    Steve here from Sayreville, NJ. I have a cobalt blue 07 which I love to death. No mods yet. That is unless you consider the little folded pieces of electrical tape I shoved between the fairing and the vibrating triangle vent to keep it quiet as a mod. I’m happy with the bike in stock form. It has all the performance I’ll ever need. My next big mod will probably be a tank protector. lol.

    My only other bike was a 93 Yamaha Seca II (600cc) which I bought new. I bought the FZ1 as a birthday present to myself when I turned 50 last year. I became a dad twice over within the last 9 years ( two girls, ages 9 and 7) so I didn’t have time to ride much then. Now that they’re a little older I have some time again to myself. It’s been a blast on the FZ1! What an upgrade! I did the MSF ERC on it back in Oct.

    I work as an electrical power systems engineer for the phone company. My office is in Manhattan but my field work is in the Bronx and Staten Island. I’m in my 26th year there. With two little kids I have neither plans nor the means to retire anytime soon.

    I’m not much of a mechanic. I usually have the dealer do the work and servicing. I’m not a slouch with tools but it’s been mostly electrical, air conditioning and some woodworking. So I’d like to start getting my feet wet with working on the bike more. At least start doing the oil changes myself.

    I have two buddies I often ride with. One of them works on Saturdays so time together is limited. The other guy, who got me into riding 15 years ago, has two kids in diapers now so I rarely see him anymore.

    They gave me a voucher for a free track day when I bought the bike. I have until the end of Aug. to use it. I’ve been reading the NESBA site to get familiar with track riding. Not sure if I’m going to do it but I’ll probably regret it if I don’t.

    My other hobbies are fishing and astronomy. I have a large telescope and I try to get away under the stars when I can up in the Catskills or the Pine Barrens of southern NJ. It relaxes me.

    My next long ride with the FZ1 will probably be to N.H. to visit some friends. Hopefully that will be within the next few months if the lousy weather here in the northeast ever cooperates.

    That’s about it.
    Nice getting to know everyone here.
