Hello everyone, new FZ10 owner from North Jersey. Been riding since 1968, I'm 68 yrs old ( no that's not a typo) Have owned Triumph Tiger, multiple honda cb750's,Kawasaki gpz1100,harley softails, road glide, and a yamaha Fjr1300. Still have a hd street glide. Just bought the fz10 last friday and I'm loving it. already have mods on order. Glad to have joined this forum.. P.S. Age is a state of mind, if you think you're old, you are. Keep the shiny side up!

Great mindset to have on age and its true, if we live till 100 then what's a 20 year gap between you and another guy here that's 48?

What modifications do you have on order right now and how soon are you looking to install them?

Hi Yamimoto, I just installed cgr bar end mirrors and a Vagabond Motor Sports fender elimination kit. cleans up the rear and keeps the stock license plate light.
I have the quick shifter (oem) on order and the radiator guard. I may order the comfort seat.

Nice job, cleaning up the tail end is something I have always been in favor of on these bikes. Hopefully cops don't bother folks too much about aftermarket plate kits. Did you ever get pulled over on previous bikes?

No, I've never been pulled over for Lic. plate mod. as long as you retain the light and turn signals I think it should be ok.

That's quite the powerful background to be coming from and i think I speak for most owners here when I say its something to be thankful for on this forum, especially towards those deciding if they want to get an FZ-10. That perspective and insight can't be matched by many!
