Ahoy there! 09 owner from Pittsburgh

Recommended Posts

Howdy.  I'm an FZ-09 owner from Pittsburgh.  Name is Sean.  Although I am an 09 owner, I would have strongly considered the 07 instead had it been out when I was in the market.
 
I have always had a soft spot for the Suzuki SV650 (my first bike) and I don't think there's ever been a bike that quite blended beginner friendly manners and sporty riding quite like it since.  The current SFV650 is a former shell of itself and the Kawasaki Ninja 650R, while being a contender, does not quite reach the bar.  I truly believe the FZ-07 is the "new" SV650 and is every bit able to pick up where the SV650 left off.

Hey there Weapon Zero! Welcome, and thanks for joining the Forum! The FZ-09 is the FZ-07's big brother, and these two bikes will change the motorcycle world!

Howdy Sean!
 
So you have the big boy! Good for you. FZ's are great bikes, future classics.
 
Like Cruizin says, NAKED RULES ! Even when taking a swim or just walking around in the house.  ::)

Actually I'm not much for sports at all.  I'm not a native Pittsburgher.  Moved up here about ten years ago from South Florida, where nobody cares much about professional sports teams.  Even the local teams don't have much of a following.  Except for basketball, and even then they're only fair weather fans.  When the Heat are doing good, everyone's a fan.  When they're not, nobody really follows sports at all.

I'm all for it, but for medical reasons I'm unable to ride for extended periods of time.  Certainly no all day things.  Good for a few hours though with frequent breaks.

[div][/div]Hey zero I'm in Pittsburgh also. I was looking at the FZ-09 but thought it might be a little much for a first bike. I hand pretty much settled on the Honda 500f until I saw that Yamaha was coming out with a 07. Now I'm just playing the weighting game until they get them in. Maybe we can meet up for a ride once I get mine.
I haven't ridden the 07, but if it's anything like my old SV650 (which I anticipate it is) you're in for a GREAT bike.  And as long as you're prepared to sink money into upgrading the suspension as your skills improve, you'll have a bike that will last you forever.
