Despite not having any sporty pretensions, a fifth gear and disc brakes and despite having a slightly light front-end with a pillion on, I would still rate the Fiero to be just as competent a bike as a CBZ. Maybe even more. The bottom-end torque was fantastic, the gear ratios spot-on and that was a genuine touring bike in that budget in every sense of the word. Not to mention 30% more FE than the CBZ as well.

Sounds like buyers remorse.

Well if you do spot me, you're welcome to overtake me. Just don't run me off the road or run me down. LOL.

Looks like it. If it has a I Drive Safe sticker at the rear bumper its the one. The windows had no films though.

He does that loop twice daily. Old Airport Road > Suranjan Das Road > JB Nagar main road > Indira Nagar 14th main > 100 ft Road > Old Airport Road. Once to drop my niece and once to pick her up.
