Tough job guys (just kidding) but great review. Money talks these days so the Tuono is a winner on that score and on performance. It comes in black and that looks way better than the yellow.

I'm just a flat, congested surface street away from a flat, congested expressway.

Seriously, having ridden in Eff-El-A so I have an idea of what you're writing; Sucks to be You.

Nothing derogatory meant in that sentence, either.

Not at all! It's like poo-say. Got one cluttering up the house day and night...it kinda loses it's appeal. Stumble across one a few times a year...now that's something special.

Hmm. Local attach in my prior post didn't work. Hooligan antics will not be denied.



Speedo corrected -10.8% via speedo healer to compensate for shorter gearing and stock error. It is dead on acccurate, in other words. Wish the FZ1 had a shorter first gear though. The power comes in at 7K, which equates to around 45mph minimum initiation speed. I just leave it in 1st and ride it to the limiter at 12.5K. Just short of balance point on the big street bike and they go maybe an 1/8th mile or so on a good one. Shifted to 2nd once, it was going about 105 mph when I set it down. Too fast for me. My 83 year old mom could probably hoist long monos on the Ape and the Brutale and Triumph.

Dirt bike hooliganism too. Very easy to do on a 450. 3rd gear, about 40 mph or so, very comfy, can pretty much go as long as I want on the dirt bike at the balance point, can even negotiate slight turns.



Wheelies are fun for everyone. Just love doing them now and then. No smoky burnouts though. Went through that phase already. Tires are too expensive
