I have owned many bikes and I seriously think this 2017 fz07 is my all time favorite. I live near tulsa ok, actually about 40 miles west in the Mannford hills. Yesterday, me and my son rode to Arkansas to find the infamous dragon tail.
I have been to Arkansas many times on my last bike zx6r but I sold that bike 5 years ago. I bought this fz 07 about two months ago and other than riding into tulsa to work everyday I haven't really got to push the fz. I left the house at 7am and wss riding the dragon by 1130. I rode it several times. Until my arms were hurting from being so tired. And each time feeling more comfortable with the bike.
Well yesterday, I pushed it and I pushed it hard. Scraping my peg feelers, even once feeling the ground push my peg. I know our suspension is missing some key adjustments. I will be changing all that out but wow I never felt unstable. This bike was amazing in the hair pen corners and I absolutely rode fast and hard without any problems or cares. I will say I'm glad I got the abs version. I have had both and I can ride either but I do prefer the abs.
I truly was amazed how well it rode. I left the dragon at 3 ish and made it home by 730. I rode 750 miles all was pretty much straight. My breaks were few and far between. Only stopping every couple of hours for maybe 10 min. I never could have done that on most other bikes. I now have 4k on my bike. In only two months. Yes I'm not one to leave it in the garage. I'm going to ride the wheels off of it.
I wish I would have taken more pics
