2014 Yamaha FZ-09

Yamaha's new sportbike. It's a triple and looks super sweet. I wish I could afford one! For anyone looking for some reading material.

Journalists act like this is something new out of Yamaha.

Here is my '77 XS750 triple.

That XS750 had double-wall exhaust headers, shaft drive, transverse mount....pretty impressive! Thanks for sharing that. (Note: EFI wasn't around yet, the microprocessor was still to come. Positive Crankcase Vent system was the only anti-smog. Gas had no ethanol and plenty of lead. Good times. :-) )

Someday is not a day of the week.

The XS750 was the FASTEST 750 available when it came out. I bought one (red tank), then Suzuki brought out the 750 (GS...?), and IT was now the fastest.

Oh well....

I was 19 when I bought mine. I had the silver one with every touring option you could add to it. It was an awesome machine and I have many fond memories of the rides I took with that bike and the tourist girls in Daytona Beach who had to have a ride on the beach.

As a 19 year old, I did not appreciate what I had with that great motorcycle. I knew the driveshaft made it easier to maintain than my friends bikes, but I did not even realize how advanced that bike was when compared to all the other 750s that were out at the time.

I fixed your link. Not much of a reviewer, but his mannerisms made me laugh a lot.

Thanks Saddlebag. I posted it from my phone. Things get a bit small when doing it this way.

Good on you mate. He's not the best reviewer in the world, but he's your average guy, not a paid journo. He certainly enjoyed this bike.
