    How many members have an FZ1 ?

    I put 12,000 miles on my 2009 between January and December in 2015. Still riding, since the weather is so nice (atypical here in MI - rode my bike to work this morning!). That's pretty typical for me for the last several years.Had a 20K season a few years ago on my 2008. I've got over 25,000 on...

    Coolant Recommendations

    Avoid touching the coolant drain bolt altogether. Remove the hose instead. Sent from Tapatalk on my Note 4.

    Happy Holidays!

    I was 5 miles from home and didn't want to push a bike with a flat tire all the way back to my house! Plus, chicken. :-) Sent from Tapatalk on my Note 4.

    Pilot Road 4. Ohh yea

    I just replaced my Pilot Road 4 after 13,616 miles - which included a track day an my first Iron Butt Saddle Sore 1000. Probably could have stretched it quite a bit more, but I decided to have a little fun.

    Happy Holidays!

    My Pilot Road 4 started showing the wear bars at the end of October, I had a new tire sitting at the shop waiting to be installed, and I'd never done a dry-pavement burnout. I figured this was a fitting way to ring in the holiday season and give myself an excuse to have that new tire installed...

    What did you do to your FZ today?

    Mounted a new Rear Pilot Road 4. Ready for an all-day ride on Friday while a couple (few?) of us play hooky from work. Weather is supposed to be a high of 53°F and "mostly sunny" here in Michigan. I'm loving this extended riding season!

    New Cable lube tool!

    Me too! I ordered a half-dozen for myself and some friends. Just doing my part to keep people busy for fifteen minutes during the long Michigan winter. Sent from Tapatalk on my Note 4.

    2015 Yooper Madness II Iron Butt

    On Saturday I completed my first Iron Butt Saddle Sore 1000! Three of us from my local club joined what turned out to be about 50 other riders for a 1000+ mile trip central Michigan around the Upper Peninsula (UP) and back to Lansing. We ended up doing it in about 21 hours, including a nap just...

    I get the white screen on mobile too. Is it possible you set something so that you are seeing the desktop site on your mobile device? Sent from Tapatalk on my Note 4.

    I'm not sure why I laughed so hard at this. Perhaps one of you can explain it. https://youtu.be/dq6T5BojXc8 Sent from Tapatalk on my Note 4.

    What did you do to your FZ today?

    Finally got around to installing a Motodynamic (smoked) tail light in my 2009. I love the look of the progressive signals, and feel that the brake flashes before solid add a little safety. Plus it's one (two?) Less thing to tape when I take the bike to the track on the 20th now that I've removed...

    School me on motorcycle locks

    You're not going to be able to lock your jacket and bike with just a disc lock. Have you considered going with just a straight-up cable and padlock approach? Might be easier to store. That U-Lock seems really awkward for carrying around, especially with your storage issues. Have you considered a...

    Knocking noise in 1st gear on the central stand

    Save your fingers and just rotate the rear tire by hand with the bike off and in neutral. I've heard too many stories (and seen a few pictures) about people getting fingers caught in sprockets. Flesh and bone will lose to steel every time! Sent from Tapatalk on my Note 4.

    Rear LED Turn Signal and/or Tail Light

    Loved my Motodynamic integrated tail light on my old Gen II. I'll get around to installing one on the "new" bike sometime soon. Had several people tell me the quick strobes before solid was really eye catching on braking. I think the progressive signals are cool, but they might be too close...
