Thanks guys!! Guru i will drop a pin, i was also trying to get the other 3-4 fz's at school to the forum.
 
Shifther & fanboy, thanks. I wanted to go take few pics at an anazing road by Yosemite that over looks half dome, but unfortunately the week i got the fz it snowed so they closed the road until april....

Thanks paulie!!
 
 
I know right, kind of sad cell phones are replacing the bulkier slr. I used to have a 60d, 70d and a 7d but lugging all that was annoying. A note 4 does the job ok, not great but decent.

Its good enough for non professionals or when you're in a hurry
 
Wish my camera lens cover wasnt cracked... my note 4 might be able to take decent pics like these

Yea less crap lugging around.... which lens cover broke? Thats what im using, the more 4. I heard the note 5 has an amazing camera but cant afford another 600 phone.

I think we found a strong candidate for forum photographer. With any luck his riding buddies will realize what they're missing and buy FZs too.

It does look good, much better than the lavender wheels.  And the color changing are called splash in editing you can just change them around.

Nice bike love the blue. What wind screen is that if you don't mind me asking? Also where did you get the 07 stickers looks like the 09 graphics.

The screen is a givi that i got here off another member. The stickers are off ebay from usa location. Look on evay under fz07 decal. You can order different colors as well 
 
 
Side note. The givi orginally lays further back. I spaced or raised the back of the screen so it stands up more than normal. That made a huge different as it took the winds off my chest and put it towards the top.

Glad to see you got the best colour! :) As far as windscreens go though. I got the V-max and it gave me about 10-20 more mpg on the freeway at about 70 mph depending on conditions. I don't know about buffeting though because I've always driving every bike I've owned without screens because I like the looks better so I just kinda starting getting used to it. Zoned it out.

I like the naked no screen looks as well, but since i like to do trips i get upper body fatigued faster without it.
