I'm wondering if he got the two of us mixed up, as I'm in Texas. And, yep. The weather's fine for riding here, but starting to get a bit toasty. I had two coworkers with FZ09s, and they loved them. Another had the FZ07 and loved it too. I actually looked into both when I was bike shopping a couple of years ago.Oh boy, these are eye candy This might be nitpicking, but all I've heard that Tracers are somewhat tamed, if not to say boring to ride. Whilze FZ09 is probably a blast, Tracer 900 is most probably tuned for a calmer ride. Again, this is in Texas, and I need a test ride Thanks anyway!
