1986 or 87( I can't ever recall but the parts are the same so I don't worry) Yamaha Fazer 700. She looks old and abused and is old and been down a few times, once with me. It looks old, and then factor in me in all my gear including a back pack to haul my work clothes and lunch in, well it don't look like much when some young sport bike rider in their official sport bike outfit of tank top, shorts, shoes with low socks and backwards hat with helmet hanging from the holder pulls up next to me at a light. I'm sure it still doesn't look like much when they pull up next to me again.
Learned to crash on this first. And it paid off when I hit a deer just a few weeks after getting my endorsement. Never again if I can help it will I ride before sunrise or at dusk. Walked away with only a few spots of road rash and a sprained ankle but I have no desire to lay it down again if I can help it.
I don't know about others and I am biased but I think the naked 80s Jap bikes are down right sexy in a mean looking way. Another reason I love this bike is that in a town of 100k I have never seen another. And when talking with other people who ride it takes a very serious bike guy to know what I am talking about when I say I ride a Fazer, and well even fewer Harley guys.
