Anyone own or ride the 2006 FZ 1?

I am considering picking one of these bikes up. Just wondering if anyone out there had any comments regarding power, handling, brakes, comfort, ect? Any help would be great! Thanks, Dave K.

I havent road the 06. But I have an 01 and it is quick and comffy. I love riding that bike. I see the 06 went with a split seat design. It gives up some cusion for the longer haul like the up to 05 had. My wife and I rdie very comfortable and certainly have the power for all day two up riding. But in a nut shell the thing look awesome with its new style. But I kinda have my self stuck on the 05 and under for now. Good luck in what ever you get.

They are having a big convention of FZ1's the same weekend as the SV rally at the Gap as R1 pointed out. It is like June 9th through the 11th.
