The https://m-h-c.ca/ couple are upgrading to adventure-touring bikes, which means their trusty and well-maintained sport-touring bikes are now up for sale!

STATS:
Royal Red 2006 Yamaha FZ-6. One owner, excellent condition: 60,575 Kms (mostly touring Kms). Michelin Pilot 5 Road tires (April 2019).

FZ-6s are justly famous for being low and well-balanced: they're great for commuting and for touring. A "Swiss Army Knife" of a motorcycle with 4-cylinder performance enough for seasoned street rider, but forgiving enough for a newbie.

Dual under-seat exhaust keeps pipes away from human legs, and in 13 years of touring, the seat has never gotten hot, no matter how many hours ridden.

MAINTENANCE:
Every manufacturer maintenance interval met, and pre-tour inspections conducted by our mechanics (Rising Sun) before every tour. They tell us that with proper maintenance, this motorcycle has another 20 years of service ahead of it. Front forks repacked 2017; valves checked 2016 (not due again for over 20,000 Kms yet).

Itemized maintenance records available.

Always garage-kept, and when touring stored under cover every night, chains maintained and tires checked (see images - sorry, motorcycle covers not part of this sale). Some surface scratches, but no rust or corrosion.
Never stored: always ridden.

MODS:
Oxford heated grips, comfy custom Laam touring seat, double-always-on headlights, SW Motech pannier rack with a pair of removable Shad SH43 side-cases, carbon-look frame-sliders. Front and back braided Galfer brake lines (red) convey with sale but are not yet installed.

SALE:
$3,600 CAD - Test ride with cash in hand. No trades.

REASON FOR SELLING:
We are changing our touring style to include more off-road riding, and that would be wrong to do to these bikes. We wouldn't be selling them if we had the parking space to keep them for riding in town or a day trip to Whistler: our lack of real-estate is your good luck!
