New San Francisco Rider!

Recommended Posts

Maverick
Hello FZ members! 
 
I bought my white FZ-07 a month ago and already have 1000 miles on it. I live in San Francisco and if anyone wants to meet up or if theres a Yamaha Club around here, i'd love to see what roads there are. 
 
Below I have a picture of Maverick and I taking a nice trip yesterday.Gooning%201%20of%201_zpsmiipw60z.jpg
There isn't too much done with her yet. Frame sliders, Rear Axle Sliders, Fender Eliminator, Givi Windscreen and red reflective rim tape.
 
Planned upgrades: Akrapovic Exhaust, Paint job, Turn Signals, Shorty Levers, and Fuel Controller. 
 
Below is a long term picture of what I want Maverick (the bike) to look like.

This is a completely fictitious picture, but I am a decent photoshop wizard. This is how I want her to look in a year or two. This is long term. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. Nice FZ and I like the photoshop version (although those knobs look like it will be very much a dirt bike). It definitely looks badass!
 

Why can't left turners see us?

Welcome maverick! I hope removing that pesky warning label on the tank is on your list of mods. I've ridden my red one through SF a time or two. (south bay here)
 
Drop a white pin on our member map so we can find you!  :)

Welcome! I like the picture. I was thinking about turning my FZ-07 into an ADV machine. You can already get a skidplate, fork gaiters, and TKC80s.

P1: Vice? I have no vice, I'm as pure as the driven snow!
P2: Yeah but you've been drifting
 
All the gear all the time!

Think you'll have a tough-time finding a 17" knobby to fit the wide rear rim… otherwise cool looking concept.

rewplayff, its a Shark Raw Helmet. Got it off Amazon for cheap and its DOT approved.
 
Yeah snowdriftless, I saw those parts and was definitely looking into it. I do like the naked approach and really wouldnt take it off road. I like the look. Kind of like Daryl's bike off of Walking Dead.
 
thanks bmwpowere36m3. If I can find the tire, that would be legit. Might have to change the rim if thats the case.
