    SOLD!!! The Tarmac Faction Yamaha FZ-07 Racing Prototype is for sale! . A unique opportunity to race another class awaits, and there isn’t room in the workshop (or our budget) to do both concurrently at the level we want. With our third streetbike project kicking off this winter and keeping us busy until the next road racing season starts, now is a good time to say goodbye to the FZ-07 RP. . The bike is in MINT condition, clean title, with only a half dozen race weekends on it, never finishing off the podium in a Twins race except once - on its first outing during its shakedown on a track I’ve never been to, with a 5th place finish at Fontana. . .

    OK, Paul. Tell us the truth. You just like spending the $$$ on new kit/toys don't you? I've lost track of how many race bikes you've built in the 4 yrs I've been here. LOL Good luck with a quick sale. You always build quality race rigs .

    After years of wondering if what they say about the Striple is true, I found one at a reasonable price: 2017 675R with 3200 miles on it and nearly new Michelin Road 5 2CT tires. My only complaint is the fork high speed compression damping is just as bad as the FZ's. And it spins about a thousand rpm higher than the FZ at 60. But that means it's pretty peppy boy! And Oh that exhaust note-a siren song if ever there was one. I can say it is a class above the FZ overall but then again the original price was about three grand more than the FZ. And it is chunkier than the FZ but...

    I bought a 2021 Street Triple R this year to add to the collection, did 170 miles today through the Smokey mts. Below our my current bikes.

    I traded the Striple for a 2021 CB300R with ABS. It was worth what Kelly Blue Book said-$5800. So I'm zipping around now using my left toe way more often than on the Fz or Striple. Honda did a great job matching the throttle with the engine because rev matching is so nice on this bike. It's like swapping the stock FZ throttle tube for an R6 tube but feels much better. I haven't seen this much RPM in high gear since 1975! The FZ is in the shop and I will greatly enjoy alternating the two when it gets returned to me.

    I picked the MT because I wanted a great “all-around” bike since my wife won’t sign off on me owning more than one right now, and I’ve got a few more years before I’m ready to move to a “dad” bike like an ADV or something. I love the character of the CP2 and the MT’s malleability/ customizability. But if I were allowed to have 3 bikes, it would probably be a KTM 1290 GT for touring, a Victory Octane for cruising and a Street Triple for more spirited rides/canyon carving. IMHO the Street Triple is king of the mid weight nakeds.
This leaderboard is set to Denver/GMT-07:00
