So I was on the way back from the Cherohala skyway this afternoon and caught a glimpse of a 1st gen black/red Z heading the opposite direction. I believe it was near Tellico Plains... not positive though. I was on my white first gen Z.

Was anyone over there today? Let me know if it was you and maybe we can meet up next time. :alcy:

It was a friend of mine. It was an 03. He called me and asked me if he just passed me. lol Told him no that I was under my truck trying to fix my exhaust. I told him that they made a factory white in 08. Then he says "I swear it was your bike. It was a first gen" Then I had to go up to the car port to check and see if mine was there. LMAO

haha. Well sorry for the scare. Yeah I saw him rubbernecking so now I know why at least. Since the Z is pretty rare, I was sure someone on here would know who it was. Nice to see one out riding, even though it was with cruisers.... (juuust kidding for all you cruiser riders..)

Well, sadly I don't have any nifty action shots like you, but I have a couple regular ones. Maybe I will work on getting some of those.. lol

this is an old one from when I first got the paint done. It is a little hard to see the color but it is a pearl. Looks great in person.


This is my sig picture, it shows the color really well:


and this is one from today on the skyway. My brother met me out there on his FZ1. We had a pretty good time, besides all of the Saturday traffic.

Dude that's awesome! Great looking bike. Why did you change the front? Something happen to the stock one or did you just want to go with a different look?

Next time you ride out this way give me a shout and I will ride with you. as well as try to get brad (with the black zed) as well. that would be some great pics. lol

Thanks man! Ya I really like it. The front end was due to a wreck from the previous owner. I am actually trying to decide on a new setup right now. I'm thinking about doing a projector setup, not sure how to make it look right though... I really want to make it look clean, but with all the factory wiring near the stem it is hard to manage. I will def pm you next time I am headed that direction. I live in Cookeville so i will def be over there a couple more times this season.
