19 MT07 in Ohio

Recommended Posts

Hello all.

 

Picked up a new 2019 MT07 about two weeks ago. It's my first bike with any real power. About 10 years ago I had a ninja 250 briefly, then I got a honda grom this season to get myself back into riding and then decided to pick this up as my main bike. I plan on keeping it a long time since it's so versatile. 

I just clocked in 1k miles today and it's been a blast. Honestly, I made the mistake of only looking at the spec sheet saying it had 75hp and didn't realize how powerful this thing is in the real world. I was certainly surprised the first time I got on it in 1st and 2nd lol. I've also been very impressed with it's fuel economy. I'm averaging around 57 so far. I'm getting more and more used to it and as my skills improve, the bike becomes even more fun with every ride. The only thing I don't like so far is that it's a bit windy on the highway after about 70 (i know a windscreen can help with that) and the seating position has me just slightly too far forward. I've found it hurts my back a bit after extended rides. So I might be looking into a windscreen and possibly different handlebars someday. Anyway, Here are some pics in it's natural habitat: Ohio country roads!

Welcome! Wild looking bike. I havent seen those new wheels in person yet. Do they pop that much in real life? Cuz they look crazy/cool in photos. Stay safe and have fun

Nice bike! Welcome.

South Eastern Ohio has some of my favorite rides. The triple nickel (rt555) near Burr Oak State Park is one the best.

Yup they are pretty bright, but I like the color scheme a lot. Plus it's just one more thing to hopefully get drivers to notice me.
