Some nice mods!

The new pipe is very nice, but I have to be honest.

The shorter pipe looked more bad ass. Not the whole bulky pipe, just the short end barely sticking out.

Also, I wouldn't install a free-flowing pipe without the ECU flash, or Dynojet 5. Highly doubt the engine will be running right with the pipe change.

Just my opinion. Keep up the good work! :smt023


Thanks Smoker!
Everyone has different tastes in styling, I just didn't like the looks of the short ones. The only one I do like is on the factory MotoGP Yamaha's. :smt023
But I don't think my neighbors would appreciate the volume on that one!! :smt003

And I just hit the first service mileage, so after that gets done I'll be having the ECU flashed by https://2wheeldynoworks.com/

Great pics Charlie!

You say you like the weather down here. I like the green up there (although you pay the price with rain). We are about 50% and closing on all of the hills turning brown. :smt012

I'm glad to see you're enjoying that new bike. My son is about ready to get a new steed after his crash last fall. I have him convinced on FZ9. Is the engine on your bike the same exact engine? The more I look at yours the more I like it. :smt007

And as you know don't neglect that RZ. They're very temperamental when left unloved. :smt042

:smt039


Yes Ken,
It's the same motor as the FZ 09. I love it, super smooth, lots of power and torque!! :smt040

And the RZ will be getting some much needed exercise very soon..... :smt023

Charlie

Took the RZ out for a 40 mile loop today. Went over to check out the PDX Coffee & Cars in Wilsonville. This was their opening weekend and it was crowded!!
It's amazing how many people have so much disposable income to afford some of these cars.... :smt017 Being a blue collar working stiff, I guess I'll just stick with bikes. :smt023

I got to talk with a few guys that were impressed with the RZ. One thought it was actually a Japanese import model. :smt003
They all wished they had kept the smokers they had in their younger days. I tried to get more pics, but the people kept getting in the way. August is when motorcycles will be featured and I'll be heading to that one.

Here's a few. Enjoy

Charlie

Not sure what this was. Pretty cool though.
Image

Now this I loved! Austin Healey with a 351 V-8 under the hood. :smt023
Image

Image

Image

Late 30's Cord I think.
Image

Love the color of this Acura.
Image

More than a few of these Lambo's there today.
Image

Looks to be a very expensive Benz!
Image

The old trusty steed.
Image

Talked to the owner of this RD 400 about all his engine mods and Spec II chambers.
Image

Heavily modded Datsun wagon.
Image

Cleaned up the XSR when I got home too.

Looks like an Ultima:

You used to see them at shows in the UK, but ive not seen one here, expect it rare stateside as well.

You are correct about it being an Ultima Jon. I thought it was a "kit car" of some sort, but I was way wrong on that one after checking out your link. :smt023

Glad to see you got out on the RZ Charlie!

These bikes get a bit of attention don't they?

Same car?

Ken,
Yeah, that would be the same car. Different color and maybe options too. I guess it just depends on how much money you want to spend on it! :smt023
