So it's finally come to that time, The thundercat is going Crying or Very sad
It's movingredients on to (hopefully) greener pastures to make way for my new beast...

A 2007 Yamaha FZ1 Abarth!!

Got it for a good price and the dealer gave me a surprisingly good trade in offer so next week I take delivery.

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves

Love the colours but I'm more of a fully faired person.

Enjoy your new steed though.

Thanks radar I always enjoy your write ups :-)

Well it was delivered today at lunchtime and the Thundercat was taken, I was rather sad to see it go. Especially seeing as it was my first big bike but after turning the key on the Fz1 and seeing all the fancy dash illuminate, I quickly got over it haha

I've just taken her out for a 100mile round trip and it was a bit of a learning curve but it is one hell of a beast! The torque was a pleasure to play with but I've yet to open her up properly, both because I'm getting used to the power and riding a naked.
It's definitely a step beyond the thundercat capabilities and I do feel that once I'm comfortable with it I will need twice the restrain to ride it legally haha
Needless to say I'm very pleased with the change but I will still miss my thundercat, it was a great first bike.

More likely to be a result of heat tint on stainless steel. left thumb up

Cheers Ross, it is a beast.
Still can't help feeling a little sad knowing the thundercat is gone.
I just hope it's in good hands (better than mine anyway haha)
