Anyone near Fort Hood, TX willing to let me ride a 1st Gen?

Hey everybody,

I'm looking at buying an FZ1 soon and although I was 100% deadset on buying a 2nd Gen, I would really like to ride a 1st Gen to make sure I'm making the right decision. I've read numerous threads and it seems both are great bikes, but I just want to make 100% sure.

I'm located near Fort Hood, Texas, about 45 minutes from Austin/Waco and would prefer to only have to go about that far for a ride.


As an FYI, I took the MSF course in 2000 and have been riding off and on since then so I wouldn't say I'm a new rider, just a rider. :rmwl:
