Tank-yous sweet Bejeezus!

The Fuzz-Nine weighs only something like 33lb more than my HawkGT! And only stickers for $2k more than I bought my Fizz-Six back in Ought-Four!

You need a real-world tester? I can be on a plane with as little as 3 or 4 hours notice....

Default FZ a hit.

I am drawn to sporty naked bikes.More displacement less cost is what competition is all about. I also like the hidden gas cap on the YZ. Yamaha has done a good job all the way around.

Well, I asked for a 2 stroke triple but this is pretty damn nice.

Might have to edit my short list.

Yamaha's Fazer 700 was one of my favorite bikes of the '80s. Seems it was way ahead of its time:
