'06 FZ6 - Just shy of 100k km on her now, many more to go. Pictures from last year.







I find it great for touring on. I have added a lot to it over the years, but the biggest trip I did with not much more then the hard bags, seat, and windscreen. I have done tens of thousands of kilometers with the Givi V35 bags loaded to over weight capacity, without any issue. Lack of power has certainly never been a problem for me. I plan to keep this bike for many years to come.

Man I love this thread! Maybe because I own a 600 that I tour on? Biased? Haha!

Keep the pics coming! (always good for more touring ideas...)

You should be proud. That is the most idiotic comment I've seen here in a while.

Here's my 2009 Kawasaki 650R in an unexpected snowfall in the Mohave National Preserve near Kelso Dunes. Awesome bike that takes me everywhere! 2 Givi 35L cases and the rest are lashed. Cheers!

This picture depresses me. I look at the leg position and know that I could never ride a sportbike a long distance. Just isn't happening. I wish I could, but...anyway, nice picture.

You can do a few things to lessen that knee bend and still have ample cornering clearance
