My first bike was a Yamaha FZR400 It was a wonderful first bike that I bought as my sole transportation while I was in the US Navy. I abused that poor bike to no end & it never let me down. Wrecked it once while racing Grizzly Peak near Berkely, CA. I was just fine as I was wearing full protection, but the bike got pretty scratched up. Then I took a pretty bad spill on her, several years later, while racing very late at night with no protection. I got pretty scraped up that time & the poor bike was pretty much done. When that wreck happened, a guy drove me home on the back of his CBR F3… The next week, I went to the Honda store & picked one up.
Fast forward to 2004, a friend of mine wanted to buy a bike but didn’t have the credit needed. I told him I’d sell him mine & I’ll go buy a R1.
Well, I sold him the bike & when I went to buy the R1, I left the Yamaha dealer on the Warrior instead.
For those wondering, I have taken a bike completely apart & put it back together again… Haha
I’ve wrecked this bike more times than I care to remember.
Yep, that’s my kitchen counter!
