On March 14, 2012, I rode home on a brand new 2012 Yamaha FZ8. This was my first new vehicle purchase (ever!) and so far I couldn’t be happier with the machine. It outperforms every expectation I had from the word go, and now that I’m through break-in I’m able to REALLY get out and have some fun keeping the motor wound up.
My sister-in-law was kind enough to have a brief photo session with me shortly after I picked the bike up (and while it was desperately in need of a wash!).
