Sometimes I wonder if I am the first/only in the area with the 07
Just wanted to see who else is in the area.

The dealership is right behind my house so i rode it through the grass home.  I'll have to wait till Tuesday to get my temp plate and insurance, it was 6:00 pm by the time I got it home.  Called progressive and they wanted 578 a year, just want to find a little better rate.  Cant wait to try it on the road, but I can tell you the tires don't like to go up a small grass hill.

Lol.....where did you get it? I got mine from advantage power sports off Barry road behind hooters. The only other dealership I know that had one was in warrensburg. A pretty red one.

Well the only one I could find around here was the pretty red one, not my favorite color but I wasn't going to turn this bike down.  I got the bike still showing 0 miles on the odometer.  I think this bike should do everything I need and not get me in trouble or kill me like it's bigger brother.

I had my first service done at Area 51 off I-70. He was about $100 less than the dealership and that was with overpriced but really good oil. Lots of threads on here for break in methods. Biggest thing is to make sure to not stay at one level of rpm for very long. Lots of great info on here.

Thanks for the info for service, did they do a throttle body sync or is it even needed?  Yeah this site has been great, I've been looking through it for a couple of weeks now.  I was looking at used bikes between 2-6 K, some of them had up to 45 K miles.  I happened to stumble across this bike, after I saw the specs, reviews and the price I knew this was what I wanted.  I guess I got lucky the dealership next to me happened to have one, only the second one they've had come through.

The guy I had do my service was skeptical about the throttle body sync at first. He checked into it and said it was recommended at every oil change(says that in the owner s manual for service maintanance). He said it was 5% off and was glad he checked it. I was in the same boat as you in my search for bikes. Came across the fz09 and loved it but I didn't want my starter bike to have 100+ hp. I debated over it and then found the 07 and it was a no brainer. A few months back they were real hard to come by but seems as though there is starting to be a steady flow. I am sure Tuesday can't come fast enough for you!

Yeah I posted my # mine is 000783.  I cant wait for Tuesday, I did squeeze in 5 miles yesterday on back roads but I figured I better not press my luck anymore.  So far I really like the torque and I've only briefly reached 6K RPM.
