  • Racer Gloves USA Guide Glove
    For this review, I'm either the perfect guy for the job... or the worst. Perfect in that I had no preconceptions about what makes a good/bad ADV glove or the worst because I have no experience riding with any particular brand of the same. I've onl...

  • Save The Salt
    I want to switch gears with this post and bring your attention to an issue that is near and dear to myself and many land speed racers. Over the past decade salt mining has caused track conditions at the Bonneville Salt Flats to become worse and worse. Years ago, the salt layer was up to 5 feet thick, today it is less than an inch in some places. Salt mini...

  • Madstad Engineering Easy Adjust Windshield System
    I had been thinking of upgrading the OEM windscreen on my 2013 Triumph Tiger 800XC for a while now. It was fine for country back roads, but at interstate speeds, it served up a fair bit of turbulence and buffeting on both my helmet and most notice...

Considering a 1g Yamaha FZ1.

So I've been throwing around the idea of buying an FZ1. I'm 21, been riding dirt since childhood. I sold my sumo XR650R awhile back, as it was rather, uh, coarse. I'm a generally conservative rider, especially on the street. On one hand, they're attainable for a song, generally reliable, and bli...
