24 I went through the sportbike crouched-over phase real fast. FJ09 is much more comfy for my ride to work than my R6s' ever were. Basically just as fast too. I still get my fix by doing track days and racing with CCS.
48. I've been riding for 15 years and this is my 5th bike and 2nd triple.
While I have really loved three of the bikes, the FJ is I think the best of the lot. It's less exciting than the Daytona 675 and the triple sound is much more muted but the motor is easier to ride and loses nothing at the top end and ho boy is it nimble and comfy to ride, the latter of which is mattering more and more with every passing year.
42. Riding bikes since I was 12, even though the first one was a hard tail mini bike powered by a 5hp snowblower Briggs. engine with a plywood seat and a centrifugal clutch. The most intense years with motorcycling have been the last 12. FJ 09 is my 5th Yamaha.
