I bought my FZ1 on 12/29/2009 after trading in my 2007 Hayabusa. I wanted something a bit more comfortable and practical that was geared more towards the type of riding I actually do on a regular basis. We had such a bad winter this year that I didn't even get to ride to work until April 1. It was darn cold. Last week, I finally got a really long ride under my belt with the new bike. I rode from St. Louis to Whiteman AFB and back again on Tuesday for a total of 418 miles. Took about 7 hours in the saddle. WOW, that seat is not comfortable. It's not bad at all for short bursts, but starts to hurt pretty bad after an hour.
