Greeting forum members.
 
I've been lurking these forums for a while and and tagged along with a buddy (motomeek) on my z1000 and met a few forum members a couple months ago. I finally made up my mind and bought a 2016 FZ-07 over the weekend and decided it's time for the intro thread. Excited about the bike and I hope to ride with you guys again soon.

Great color combo .. looks good. Every time I see one, I wonder what was Yamaha thinking with those stock tail anchors. Other manufacturers have them too. Anyway, welcome to the forum.

Stock fender is a US regulation. Has nothing to do with Yamaha.
 
Every time I see that color scheme, I feel like it screams for a set of clip-ons. I have exact same bike in grey, but the silver just looks like it's meant for racing.

I wonder, how much to have the rims professionally powder coated. (ball park) Anyone? My bike is white/blue but with blk. rims and blue rims would be the icing on the cake.
 
Nice bike, btw! Congrats!

Appreciate the kind welcomes everyone.
 
I think the race inspired look comes from the fact that this color scheme is very similar to the R1/R1M, which is basically what made me fall in love with it even more. I was on the fence between the FZ-09 and the FZ-07 and was slightly leaning towards the 09 because the 2015 offered this color scheme, but when the FZ-07 came out with it for 2016, I jumped right on board the bandwagon.
 
It really depends on where you live for powdercoating. Here in Southern California, I know of a few places that do it for $50 a wheel any color. Keep in mind that you have the get the tires dismounted and remounted, so $200-$300 sounds about right. If it's something you're really interested in doing, wait till you need new tires and kill 2 birds with one stone.

If you're talking about the ride on the 18th. I can't make it.  :-[
