FZ1 is hardly a touring bike? Touring bikes usually have saddlebags and or tour packs.The Yamaha FJR is a better example of a sport touring bike.If you like the FJR, the Honda ST1300, BMW K1200GT or BMW R1200RT would competitive bikes. ------

They are a lot better bikes for fuel mileage and confortLook into a sport touring bike. The FJR 1300, it half good at both, but yer MPG isnt going to be as good as a straight street bike. ------

I find my FZ1 (2002) to be the best all around bike I've ever owned! Great in the twisties,on track days & long touring rides. I have owned somewhere between 65 to 75 bikes. I must admit I
haven't been riding it much lately since I got a street legal Super Motard.The motard is 55mph slower on top end but the FUN factor is 150% greater!

man all the FZ1 threads are so old.
but the FZ1 is both a great canyon carver, and add bags and makes a great touring bike it is made as in-between bike.
two up no problem has more then enough getty-up and go.

i know old thread but need to bring this area back to life.
