    Yamaha FZ1 Fazer in Greece, up to 277kph.

    The sheer performance of some of the modern 'All Rounder' bikes is, compared with a few years ago, quite astounding. Anyone wanting high performance, without the (long distance) discomfort of a modern crotch-rocket, might well consider something like the Yahama FZ1 Fazer shown in the clip below.

    It is amazing, isn't it?

    My '76 Kz900 (essentially a Z1900 - which was the first large cc "superbike," as you know and the quickest/fastest thing on wheels in the mid 1970s) was only capable of 12 second quarter miles and topped out at around 134 mph.

    By today's standards, the Kz is slow.

    Virtually any 1,000 bike today can do at least an 11 second quarter - with top end close to 150 mph. Supersports are in the 9s - with top speed over 170 mph....

    This is one occasion where I will say hooray! for progress!
