Well I do not have the bike yet but am getting anxious to purchase it hopefully here in a couple weeks! Plus it is dumping snow outside so not much I could do with it besides rev it in the garage! Any input on your experiences with your bikes will be noted greatly! Thanks

Welcome to the forums. If you know you'll be getting the bike, try to avoid waiting until the last minute. Once the weather turns and demand increases, the dealer will have better bargaining leverage.

I agree with Hobbs reply.  I just purchased my bike on Feb. 11th, so only a couple hours of riding time because of cold, snow and ice. However, I have time to put on the accessories and be ready for riding season. Good luck with your purchase!

I am a fellow February buyer. It sucks that I have under 200 miles on my FZ, but the money I saved bought my Yoshi and Givi.
 
Do not hesitate, momentum is already shifting...

I agree with all the above posts. Prices will only go up as the riding weather gets closer and more people start thinking of buying a bike.

You guys are right that it is smart to buy during the winter! Unfortunately I am waiting on funds to purchase the bike that come in here in about two weeks! But I should have a hefty down payment so maybe that will even the odds! As far as color I like them all! I think I would prefer black but the dealership here has a red one and it looks great too. What are you guys thoughts those of you that have seen all the colors in person?

If you prefer black, red has the advantage of a black frame and fender.
 
The other, lamer colors, do not. :)

Asking which is the best color is a sure way to start a fight. For some reason there are people who do not realise that red is the best color :).

Red is also the fastest color according to our very scientific poll and the Doppler effect. You can't go wrong with red.

Red is obviously the best choice...in this rider's opinion, the only choice. It's sexy, fast, and will make tall athletic blondes leave their boyfriends just to get a chance to date you.

I like the white color and the red bikes black frame.  So I purchased a red Fz-07 and purchased the 3 white tank body panels for around $150 and will swap out the red panels for the white.  Other members have purchased the red bike and replaced the red panels for graphite. Just letting you know this color swap is an option, if you don't mind the extra cost of purchasing the body panels.

Thanks Eastern Kayaker I did not know about that! That sounds like an awesome idea to me!

As a 23 yr old male, who would you guys recommend for insurance? Is the Fz-07 considered a sport or super sport bike? Where have you guys found cheaper insurance that is still worth it?

There is an insurance thread here. I am with State Farm and am paying about $280 a year.
