Hey everybody, newbie here,

Looking desperately for an FZ09, preferably in the graphite color. I'm in the Daytona Beach, FL area and struggling to find much of anything around the state. (Looking for private sale rather than brand new from dealer)

Show me whatcha got!

Smart. Finding the graphite will be easier than a Red one:cool:

Ive been eyeing him like a hawk! saw the cl add and saw him on here! And i think I'm willing to sacrifice color preference.

If you're out of state, Google "U-ship"

I'm betting $250-350 to your doorstep.
Hey Steve,

Ive had friends that have used u-ship before and i know its rather inexpensive I'm just not sure how to go about it without using something like ebay. I suspect most people may find it a little skeptical (just like all of that long distance spam you get with craigslist). Speaking of ebay, i can't believe the lack of fz09's on there!

Understood. I just went through it earlier This Week. I found a used bike I wanted and the price was right. Shipping cost was ok too. Should I mail him a check, first...?? Will he ship the bike, and Then I mail the check.....difficult questions I couldn't answer.

Ahh yes and then you have to decide if you're willing to deal with paypal...

luckily the guy with the orange one is just outside of Pensacola so i would prob just make the drive. Looks like its orange or bust for the time being.

PS i just wish there were 85 limit signs around!!! ;) (i have yet to see one if those!)

Go after that Blazing orange one. It is after all the fastest color. I may be a bit delusional though...
Fixed that for ya.

Everyone knows the Rapid Red is the Fastest Color ;)

Thanks Steve. Im quite happy. I did my first accidental wheelie yesterday!

my biggest problem right now is insurance. Heres a quick look at what I'm dealing with: right now 2014 fz09 comprehensive 1000 deductible is over 800 per year for me.
I was also looking at a 2014 z1000, a more expensive bike, before i bought and i quoted the bike just to see the difference. The 2014 z1000 comprehensive 1000 deductible wasjust under 200 per year!!

WHATTTTT WHYYY! I wish i had never looked at the quote for the Z!
