Am I the only one so far in E. TN that has:

1. Found this forum
2. Plans on buying a new FZ 09


Edited...........Wow, it's been almost a week now and no responses. Y'all keep this up and I'm going to be the only guy riding one through Deals Gap this fall! Hmmm, I could be the first one on Killboy.com, US129photos.com, Moonshiner.com, and all the rest of them that shoot pics up there. I'd be like an alien or something on a new UFO!! :)

I'm in Panama City, FL and plan on riding everywhere I can. This will be my first bike but once I get comfortable I will be riding everywhere I can.

Nice! I lived on the beach for two years. Welcome to the site.

As for your triple, it looks like you are the Lone Ranger out that way. Hopefully we see some new members from that direction soon enough.

No, Triplethreat, you won't be the only one. And you may not be the one to have your pic taken first, depending on when mine comes in. Actually, I'll be the one who looks like an alien, because I've got kids older'n you!
Seriously, I look forward to meeting you, my friend!
P.S:
Bet I'm slower'n you.
Bikes: 1200S Bandit, 125 Scorpa trials comp. And soon......red FZ09.

Wrong,Triple...4 days older! Just kiddin'. I'm74. Had my right hip replaced 34 days ago. Rode the Bandit @32 days after replacement. Awaiting '09 from MM @ exit7. Will get left hip replaced this winter, hopefully. I guess I'm expected to ride a cruiser at my age......Wrong.

I can honestly say, even though I'm 59 (almost), I don't feel like a frumpy old man.....and at 74 and still riding like you do, my hat is off to you Sir! I've been in MM several times, but I live in Blount county and I'm about half way between Murvil and Vonore, so that is quite the drive for me. I'm getting mine at Alcoa Good Times, which is a 30 minute drive from my house. I'm getting the Red one also. When they come in, we'll have to get together and take a ride over to the hill. That would look sweet.....two Red FZ's leaned over and going through the Gap.

Glad to hear that your hip replacement went well and good luck with the left hip this winter. And, just because I'm such a nice guy, I'll even offer to keep the cobwebs blown out of your FZ this winter/spring if you need me to during your short re-hab time.
I'm looking forward to meeting you also.

Yeah, Triple, we could call it the "11 mile kids tour" or some other just-as-ridiculous moniker.
I appreciate your offer re:cobwebs, but I don't think there will be any!
I am thankful to still be able to ride a sportbike, although decidedly not as fast as I'd like to ride, nor for as long as I would like, as I get tired and sore pretty quick. But I get a great deal of satisfaction, as does my girlfriend, from riding the "twisties".
And there are no"chicken strips" on my Q2's.
Here's looking forward to getting together!

I swear I saw you on your FZ at the Gap. I was just getting ready to leave, it was like 5:30 PM or so. I was out there on my SV650. Just saw you for a minute, didn't wanna bother you as it seemed some people already were talking to you about the bike.
Looking back on it I wish I had asked you to let me sit on it!!
