Hey, y'all. To make a long story short, I traded out of a Harley into a Triumph Street Triple R a month ago. About 18 hours later, I got rear-ended on it. The insurance company declared it a total loss. I took that as a sign (superstitious. gremlin bells and all), so I began looking at other naked bikes. I kept running across one opinion/review after another full of LOVE for the FZ-09. I figured that many people couldn't be wrong, so I went in for a test ride. It put a big grin on my face, so I rode home with one to call my own....... And no, it won't stay stock for long. I'm here to learn more about this amazing machine from those wiser than I.
