Yamaha’s FZ-10 really stole my heart the moment I threw a leg over it at its intro, and that feeling was backed up when we put it against some of its contemporaries in our “Yet Another Streetfighter Shootout.” The FZ-10 sounds stellar, is a great handler, and comes equipped with a monstrous mid-range punch I can’t get enough of. Those are all points I make in this video. What you don’t see in the video is my friend, and occasional MO video creator, Sean Matic, who came along for the ride to The Tail of the Dragon to help shoot this video. He worked his butt off getting all the shots, capturing the sound, piloting the drone, and just overall making me look somewhat presentable. It’s no easy task, but he pulled it off and was a pleasure to be around, too. When you’re lucky enough to have a great bike to ride, an awesome location in which to ride it, and a fantastic crew (of one) to work with, it makes picking a favorite video of 2016 pretty simple. –Troy Siahaan, Fanboy Editor
