FZR1000 und VFR750FM

Bought used with 7000 miles on the clock in February 1994. It's a 1991 model coded FM. It proved reasonably fast, reliable, hard to service and comfortable to ride up to 800 miles a day. It carried me to France, Germany, Spain, Ireland, Britain, Austria, Italy and Holland.

I still own and enjoy it after 10 years and 53'00 miles through half of Europe. My dream of a 1000 VFR, 80 pounds lighter, has never come true. The Yamaha Fazer 1000 is closest to it.

I particularly like this RC36/1 because it's probably the most refined bike. Among its features: Single-side swingarm, muffler with a ball joint for easy removal of the rear wheel, side- and centerstand, sidestand forms part of fairing, flashers integrated in the fairing (who would buy a car with flashers on sticks?). Lovely dashboard which fills the room in the fairing in an automotive-type style, no wires, cables or struts 'hanging' about. Very nice symmetrical clutch- and brake lever lay-out. Gasoline gauge and reserve cock.

The RC36/1 was equipped with 36 mm diameter choke carburettors while the RC36/2 from 1993 on had reduced chokes of 34 mm. This resulted in a loss of about 5 ponies, however, midrange torque was said to be improved.
