Chilean rider & "Dark-Y" love story!

Recommended Posts

panchobullet

Sooo, it has been quite a while since I joined the FZ07.org community -about a year now- and after all this time I did a lot of riding here, taking ideas, tips, advises, deals, etc to make my MT-07/FZ-07 "sexy". So let me give you a little background before I present you all my loved "Dark-Y"... It was March 2015 and after very hard years we decided to sell our house to get rid of all debs, start clean and save some money as we did a pretty good deal for the house. By then I had a 2007 Sachs Madass (125cc) and it was time to make "THAT" change too... So after a few weeks of back and fwd I was able to sell the Sachs and was ready to get a XJ6-N but when I got to my local dealer they had just got their first exhibition MT-07 and it was love at first sight. What a beautiful peace of art!!! I was ready to take her home right away but I needed to place a pre-order and wait for the first shipment to arrive... luckily, the first "5" units were on the way and just needed to wait 2-3 weeks. So placed the pre-order and waited for her to arrive... Finally, on April 20th 2015 I was able to meet my Dark-Y and take her home with me... Oh my, what a first ride... It was like making love for the very first time once again!!! I just didn't want that ride to ever end!!!... Since then Dark-Y takes me to work and wherever I need to go pretty much in a daily basis and -as my wife says- I show Dark-Y all my love every time I can taking care to make her look pretty all the time. So far, it shine just like new... maybe even a little bit better!!! 
 
So after a lot of research I figured out here in Chile there was NONE dang accessory for the MT series since they were just getting in -and still there is pretty much nothing anyway- so to be able please Dark-Y and give her all she deserves I needed to get everything from outside which off course made me sweat blood and took quite a bit of time to get things shipper over but after all this months of work, saving, waiting I'm really happy with the outcome... But off course, there is still a lot more to do so I hope to keep sharing pics, comments, thoughts, tips, links or anything I can to give you all something back as I did honestly learn a LOT in here. Finally, I think it's about time to let you meet her... Lads and Gents... I present you... "Dark-Y"...

Yeah she loves to flirt a lot, that's just the way she is... but she is "devoted" only to me!  P-)  -at least so far :P

Your rims (look good) reminded me I bought some FZ-07 rim stickers for mine awhile back and haven't put them on yet ... along with a handlebar mounted charger for my phone/pump if I ever get one. How's the riding down there? Not too hectic or crazy is it?

And about driving here in Chile is really not that hectic or crazy as Brazil, Argentina or Peru. There is a lot of traffic during rush hour but at least most of people do respect ligth stops and road sign! (cannot say the same for other south american countries :P )
