FZ1 Pride

Post photos of your FZ1 that are special to you. Feel free to add the story of the photo along.

This one I took today. Even though she isn't that clean, she just looks mighty purty in this one (of course the sizing is way off)

Let me try this again..

This is a picture of my first NYC trip. May 3rd 2016, 5 months after buying her. It was rainy and cold. Rode up from Norfolk, VA with my girlfriend behind me on stock seats. Had to stop every 30 minutes because it hurt so much.

I loved lane splitting in NYC as no car was moving most of the time, I thought it was easy. I panicked about where to park every single time. Had a bicycle chain with me so I could chain her to trees, and street signs and such.

July 2015. I rode from Wichita to Albuquerque for the finish of the Iron Butt Rally. Met one our old friends, FazerPhil, there as he finished the rally.

The return trip involved going through Colorado. Left Albuquerque at 10AM, did 475 miles up into southern CO. Here are a couple of shots from that ride:

Wolf Creek Pass, US 160 northeast of Pagosa Springs:



Near Lake City, on CO 149: (this is one of my favorite motorcycle pics ever)



The trip was a no-plan ride, and I ended up not finding any hotels open in Gunnison. So I rode over Monarch Pass to Salida in the dark. That was fun.

Next day went to Pikes Peak, then another 500 miles home from there. 48° on top of the mountain, 102° from Pueblo to Wichita.

A highlight of the trip was seeing Erik Lipps' son Jack as Erik rolled in to finish the rally. He was so happy to see his dad he was floating.

Love this thread. Couple pics for me that are particularly personal using my European Fazer - 1st on the backside of Stelvio Pass between Sondrio and the summit. 2nd is near Graubunden, Switzerland. 3rd doesn't feature the bike BUT is meeting FZ1OA royalty Schlumpf (Christian!) at the Nurburgring.

Best,
Ron

This is the first ride my youngest daughter took. This was a Dam Tour ride to the Rock Creek dam in 2009. It can't be seen, but she is wearing a riding jacket under the rain coat.



This is Baker dam during a three day Dam Tour ride my youngest took with me in May 2011.



We were snowed on going over White Pass (found out later the electric coat liner wasn't working), torrential rain on the West side of White Pass, and was wet pretty much the whole trip. She hasn't ridden with me since!

This was the last bonus dam (Hell Hole in California) I visited in the 2011 Dam Tour, earning me my first finisher's trophy.



It doesn't look like much, but this is the last bonus dam (Lahontan in Nevada) I visited in 2012, earning me my second finisher's trophy.



That stop was part of this fantastic 5 day 3,500 mile trip.
