Well I am down to one bike for the first time since about 2001! The FZ has been sold to a colleague and will be heading off to Sutton Coldfield in about a weeks time.

I have really enjoyed owning 'Baby6' as my girls called it and I hope that the new owner enjoys owning her too...

Here are few of my adventures on the old girl:

It all started on a cold December day back in 2006, 216 freezing miles home from Durham after an impulsive ebay session!

The poor weather didn't stop me enjoying the 80's icon

Up at Quattford near Bridgnorth

The FZ is fun to ride but by mid 2007 the MOT had run out and various time and life pressures meant the old girl got rather forgotton for a while...

So a winter rebuild was needed and new fork seals, a heavily reworked exhaust, a new battery and some fresh oil soon perked the little Yamaha up no end...
MOT secured the FZ was soon back in it's element once more...back on the road!

It even got up to Bassetts Pole to hang with all the shiney new superbikes...

But the time came to sell, and the FZ is heading off to pastures new.
Farewell old friend, you will be fondly remembered.

Right where did I leave that Bike Trader...watch this space!
