Sometimes, things can come back to haunt you years down the road. Case in point: In our road test of the original Yamaha FZ1, Kento wrote in his SRO “Cool. When I get old (ha!), jus’ gimme an FZ1, some soft luggage and I’m set.” Now, 10 years later, Kent often moans about how old he feels (ha!) and here is an FZ1 for him. And not just any FZ1, but the exact same bike from that test 10 years ago. You see, after our original evaluation and a year of abuse, longtime tester Steve Mikolas purchased the FZ1 and it’s been his ride for 23,000 miles. We figured it was time to see how it had held up over the years, freshen ‘er up a little, and perform some upgrades.
