I'm not as disturbing as DanA, but I try

I guess you'll have to call this a minor disturbance in the force. SWMBO has finally allowed me a second bike, albeit with a rather low allowance for one, so I managed to find me a 2001 Yamaha FZ1 with 18,000 miles on her and several nice accessories. I'm going to use the FZ1 for commuting and my RT for longer rides, trying to keep about 10,000 miles per year off the RT I now spend commuting every day. Since I traded in my K1200S on the RT I've been missing the gods of acceleration; it's good to have them back.

If you aren't good for anything else, you can always serve as a bad example.
