Riding again after 20 years

Recommended Posts

RIP

I know, it's been a while

 

But I thought I'd introduce myself as I am a new FZ 07 owner. I just love this bike!!

 

Year's ago I has an FZR, a couple of other Yamaha and  Suzuki.....it's been so long I can't really remember the models....but who cares really

 

Anyway, I belong to some music forums and now that I'm riding again I'm hoping to make this place somewhere I can come and learn a few thing and ask stupid questions 

 

Looking forward to reading all the awesome stuff about an awesome bike.....the FZ 07

There are lots of "returning after a long break" riders here who've chosen an FZ-07. Myself included. Welcome to the family.✌️

 

And good luck finding a stupid question that's not already been asked here. 😁

 

And we need pics of your bike too.

Well done for returning. It is even better after a long break (I did it). Enjoy!

I think we've already met in "share your pics" but since this is your "official intro" I have to say welcome and congrats on your FZ-07 and welcome back to bike world as well! It appears you're well over due and the FZ-07 is the perfect bike to cut loose on to get that smile pasted! Have fun, stay frosty!

Welcome @RIP, I too was a returning rider 15 year hiatus. The FZ is an awesome bike to get back into riding, enjoy and as stated there's a ton of info to read through.

There is an old saying. There is no such thing as a stupid question, only stupid answers.

Actually I beg to differ. Example stupid question: " Will the wind be so mighty as to lay low the very mountains?" ( Rowan Atkinson . "Secret Policeman's Ball" or the other one).

Welcome to a very useful and informative forum with some very helpful  people. LOTS for older riders who have come back and gone for the 07.

Welcome to the forum.  I am also a returning rider, after thirty years of no bike--the FZ 07 is a great choice.

Seriously tho, enough with the niceties. Let's get that thing cut up and modded!

If you haven't yet, you should go through "gear reviews and questions". Most of the usual questions have been answered already in there and a search using 'key words' can bring up answers to questions even faster. Just throwing that out there to be helpful. If you can't find an answer to a question by all means, ask away! We're more than happy to help a fellow biker.

Nice to see another rider getting back into it after a decade+ lay-off.  07s are way too much fun, nice to see your red beauty and good luck of modding it out.

Even though we have missed some years, it seems to me that coming back is all the sweeter for it.
