    After riding the FZ1, the Concours seems so heavy. Honestly, it's a great bike. Way more low end torque than the FZ1. I like the Concours' integrated bags, big windscreen and ergonomics.

    The Concours is a sport TOURING bike while the FZ1 is a SPORT touring bike. If that makes sense.

    I will say, the 08's and 09's have gotten down to the $3000-$3500 range. If you have the cash, pick one up you will not be disappointed.

    Hey FZ-1 folks...

    I’m selling a nice set of adjustable and brand new, never used levers for My old 2013 FZ-1 in the fleamarket. I bought them and put them in my closet and forgot about them, then traded in the bike.

    I’m pretty much making next to nothing on these brand new levers, just trying to rehome them for cost of shipping and a couple extra bucks. I’m pretty sure I paid triple of what I’m asking for them.

    Well that figures.
    I just recently posted a Wilbers shock for sale that I took off before trading my FZ1 on my Tracer two years ago. I held on to it in case I came across a nice white '14 FZ1 that I've had my eye out for. Kinda gave up on that so it's up for sale if anyone needs one. PM me for details if interested since the FZ1OA looks dead now. Pity that.
    Moderators, sorry if I'm overstepping, don't mean to.

    I know. As strange as it looks, 3-4 years ago bikes prices were less than now.

    Yeah it seems to be gone.

    Bike-specific forums seem to by dying out, with some of the activity moving to FB groups.

    That is a shame, because it was an excellent forum with lots of info to search. On the bright side, Pat's site is still up.

    No Facebook or any Chats (What's up...) can't substitute structural specific forums where you can find about anything you need or have many different discussion going at ones for a long time.

    I haven’t been successful in drilling into the actual threads though...so this might be a strike out.
