Hello all, just wanted to introduce myself.  My fz07 is being shipped and should be here in the next few weeks.  Will get some pictures up when it arrives and the weather starts warming up.  Ive been wrenching for around 7 years.  I will probably keep the bike stock for a while.  Only thing I'm interested in changing is the lights.  Maybe relocate with some LEDs.  Any other riders in the Nebraska area?

Hello hippiebikerchick, I ordered a white one. In my opinion its the best color. I would like to get a little more red on the bike. like the bar grips, or maybe rattle can the grill in the vents.

What color is yours?
Rapid red, the fastest color.  :) 
I love the white too, and would have gotten that but my cruiser is silver and white.

Mine shipped from Seattle to Virginia in 6 days....
 
Don't be surprised if you see it sooner!

O judgment! Thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their reason. Bear with me.
My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar,
And I must pause...till it come back to me.

I dont mind the wait. Its 9 degrees in Omaha right now. So it would just be sitting in the garage making me sad. Its better if I cant see it right now.

white is nice but burple rims add 2 horsepower, and thats just a scientific fact. There was a guy on my big 07/09 ride who had an LED mounted underneath the headlight, i didnt take any pictures of it but it looked super clean. I would just be careful rev,I know how you hate to part with money, and those LED's can go for $5 on ebay and break in a week or $250 from specialty manufacturers which are hosed in billit and are bright enough to burn a hole in the road.
 
Also may want to check out what the forum has to say about the subject

Congrats @rev, excellent color choice.
We need all the help we can get, something @hippiebikerchick seems to forget when it's white. And that's racist man!  8D

White rims will actually cause you to lose 1 hp, .37 torques and 14 hit points on your level 12 mace
