    Frame sliders. Yes or No?

    I ended up with Shogun sliders. I only have the front sets right now. but I'll pick up a second pair for the other set. Thanks guys!

    Frame sliders. Yes or No?

    What's your opinion on frame sliders? Should I invest in some? If so, what kind?

    A bit overwhelmed. Some advice?

    This might be a silly question. I see everyone say lean harder into corners, if going to fast. Just so I know I'm understanding, I do lean towards the inside of the corner, correct? The side I'm turning?
  5. Can somebody please tell me what the connector in the storage compartment is for? There is a wire with a connector and a rubber cap on it. I know it's not the AUX since that's under the tank, but what is it?! It's driving me nuts!

    Installed new phone mount with usb

    Hey @DewMan! No fuse on it unfortunately. The wire is long enough to reach the battery and able to be a direct connection, but I ended up using the 12v AUX connector that is already on our bikes. As far as movement goes, It was solid! I never had an issue reading it, and I noticed little to no vibration. I do have it bolted to the back side of the gauges, which was actually more simple than a handlebar mount. I think it would be pretty easy to attach an extra rubber strap to secure it for peace at mind.

    Installed new phone mount with usb

    I took my bike out today for a little bit, to test out the new mount. At first glance, it doesn't look it will hold well. I didn't go above 50 yet, but I did go over some pretty rough roads, and the mount held tight. The ball joint allows for me to adjust it perfect, so I can see the screen without weird reflections. The usb works like a charm, as well.
  8. And I love it. It's the first time I've take the bike apart, so that was interesting. I am officially set with GPS, and a sturdy mount. My puig windscreen should be in today. Only thing left is to figure out how to make the seat a little better for traveling. Here's the link for those who are interested. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017UC20QC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    A bit overwhelmed. Some advice?

    Thanks for all the replies! After having her for a week, I'm much more comfortable. I signed up for a intermediate MSF, because I've never taken one. I think that's the deal, I feel pressured to ride out of my comfort zone, but I've been working on ignoring that and staying in my comfort zone, unless it's a situation I need to get out of, in which I gas it a little and get the hell out of there. I have a Puig on the way for interstate purposes. Soonish, I'm considering riding my bike 350 miles up to ohio (from knoxville). This has become one of the best purchases I have ever made! Since seats are so pricey, I'm just going to make do. But I am looking to buy a bag of some sort and a throttle lock. EVENTUALLY I would LOVE to get a slip on exhaust and a new seat. high res image hosting

    A bit overwhelmed. Some advice?

    To start off, I started riding a year ago, on a suzuki s40. I traded up to the fz 07 yesterday. I definitely still consider myself a beginner. It was a pretty impulsive buy, so I didn't spend a lot of time researching. I saw it thought it was pretty, I was comfortable on it and i liked the balance of the bike, so I moved forward with the sale. I was under the impression the fz was a touring bike, but it is quite a bit more powerful and sporty than I expected, or intended. I really just like to relax and cruise along. I'm not into the stunts and the high speeds. I know it's probably a silly concern, but are there people with sportbikes (more specifically the fz) that ride more laid back, that aren't into popping wheelies and hitting speeds well over 100. I haven't met a person yet, who rides a sportbike, and not talk about high speeds or popping wheelies down the interstate. I love the way the bike handles, and I think it's rather comfortable. I don't mind the torque, though I am still getting used to it. I do in fact feel safer on this bike, than the s40, as well. Also, What are some helpful hints or resources you can point me to, that will help me improve my riding skill and help give me more confidence. I love riding, but I also love being alive and physically and mentally sound, so I want to learn as much as I can to help me stay that way.

    Second Bike, 2017 fz 07

    Hey there! I'm Linzie and just recently moved back to Knoxville. I brought home my new Glacier Blue fz yesterday, and I have to say, I LOVE it. I upgraded from a suzuki s40, and it's night and day. I will say the power intimidates me a little, but I think I'll get a hang of it in no time! I love working on my bike, and am hopefully going to put an aftermarket exhaust on it, soon. I'm hoping to learn a lot about my new bike, and improve the riding experience. Ride safe! (silver one is fiance's fj 09)
