Hey guys! Just bought my first bike, 2016 FZ-07 in Raven/Black. 
 
Its cold, I like learning to ride. Lets hope I wait a bit before putting that baby down on pavement.

Welcome and nice ride, I love a bike that's all black. Best looking paint when clean and shiny, IMO. Don't see you on the member map so where from in Ohio? I lived in Troy for 17 yrs. myself.

Agreed, black has got to be the new "Fastest Color". Gorgeous!
Also, agree about the safety course, but do learn how to ride it before the course. I just finished it a few months ago, and can tell you it progresses far too quickly for someone to actually learn how to ride comfortably.
I'm in Northeastern Ohio (3-1/2 hours away), and it's way too cold for me lately.  I could be wrong, but I think in these temperatures, even if the road is dry, it's going to be easy to slide out due to super cold tires.  You can test that by seeing how easily the rear tire locks up while stopping in a straight line.  Better than finding out through a turn!

A few of us here in Dayton. We'll have to hit you up when the weather changes. We often ride east into the hill...old man's cave area.

If you haven't already started the "modding" process, might I recommend a set of frame sliders to start with. Relatively inexpensive peace of mind...
