after a year of riding it I am simply bored with it. Don't get me wrong, its a very competent bike, but I equate it to driving a Toyota Camry no excitement. The FZ1 was over the top with excitement! My problem was I had very little self-control on it. Rode the crap out of it pretty much every time I got on it.
I'm with you on keeping it sane. I have a Tuono to give me my hooligan fix!
