    I just got an fz600- now a running project and my buddy shot a pic of me on it: and I thought, man, there needs to be a big dude on a small moto thread. I love this little bike, but its made for someone about a foot shorter and 80lbs lighter than me!

    A guy I ride with was telling me about a trip he took on his 250 Ninja. He says he rode by a big mirrored glass store front, and the first thought through his mind was "damn it, some old, fat guy stole my bike".
