    The GS500 sold last night and I picked up my new bike an hour later

    1989 Yamaha FZR 400

    It's very very cool, I'm pleased so far. Going in for work some time this week though

    That thing is styling. Is it faster than your old bike?

    That was a great era as far as styling goes for bikes. I love the dual round headlamps. :)

    Looks clean. Congrats!

    I almost crashed yesterday because the 5 year old tires with less than 3000 miles on them are slippery and hard as rocks.. The outside edge of the tire has NEVER been touched and I leaned it over hard for a corner and felt the back end sliding out; almost high sided hahaha.

    New tires are being ordered today

    Going to bring the bike in for service too

    That is a sweeeeeeeeet looking bike. I, too, really like that era for bike styling. Those older red/white/blue Hondas look great.

    Dustin I am incredibly jealous. That is a gorgeous bike. 80's japanese motorcycles are some of the coolest looking things ever made.
