OK, so its not really a car! I owned a 1987 Yamaha FZ 600 when I was in college. It was great for getting around campus, without the need for taking the bus - well, except for those cold, wet or snowy days! There was a group of about 6 of us that went riding all the time, and I was hooked. I sold that bike soon after college because it wasn't worth much. But I always had the itch. In the spring of 1998 I found a low mileage, mint condition '91 VFR at a great price and scarfed it up. It was a great bike - very comfortable and easy to ride. I didn't do much to it other than put on new tires, a K & N filter, and shaved the hideous rear finder.
I didn't have a lot of friends with bikes, and those that did either sold them off, or converted to Harley guys. But when gas prices went sky high, I rode it a lot to work - until of course I changed jobs that required me to carry a lot of stuff. The first couple years I rode about 1000 miles each year. Then it did more sitting in my garage than anything else. After about 3 years of this and barely 5 tanks of gas, I decided to sell it while I could still get my money out of it - and focus my automobile efforts towards Mustangs!
Part of me still wants it back, and part of me wants to just stick to 4 wheels. But the guy I sold it to has contacted me to let me know he only put 2000 miles on it before he learned he cannot ride again because of a neck ailment. He said he'll let me know if he decides to get rid of it - so you never know?!
