I almost never see another FZ-09 here in Communist Santa Barbara.

But I saw a Blazing Orange one on this Labor day morning (9/1)

Who are you my friend?

You were heading North and I was on the Rapid Red one heading south.

We both waved.

Pull over, identify yourself, Boy do you know how fast you was a going?

Buford T Pussor was taking a hard look at you!!! Lol.

Good o'l Ten-er-see. Lots of great music there!

Yea you would have loved todays riding weather. 75 degrees, light breeze off the water, and plenty of sunshine... to go with a heavy dose of Communism. Lol.

I'm not sure where Atoka is, but we put in almost 200 miles today in E. TN.....Deals Gap/Robbinsville/Cherohala skyway/back to the house. We got about 5 minutes of rain up on the skyway, but it was over almost as fast as it started.....and yea, the FZ is rideable in the rain....even in "A" mode!

Yep that was you. I got pretty excited when I saw it was an FZ. Especially an orange one. Nice to see some color around here. Almost everyone around here has either a black or grey bike. Kinda like watching a black and white movie.

I had better shut up before the tomatoes start flying my way!

Cool to see FZ's starting to meet out in the wild! On a side note anyone doing track days at Laguna Seca or are cruising Big Sur/PCH PM me and I can show you around the area. Hopefully I'll be getting back back down south soon to ride Malibu with all you SoCal guys!
