How was the first ride back? Must have felt good. Hopefully it felt like the first day you bought it.

Nope... it felt better
the day i bought it... it was 2030 and on the verge of a monsoon while riding it home
today the sun was shining... Luke Airforce Base had classes going with the new F-35s
and I got a chicks phone number... or i hope it was a chick...

Nice green color. On paper I wouldn't think it would work well with the red, but indeed it does.  And you have to follow up on that phone number business and post what happened if so! :D
 
Time to change your avatar me thinks.

Have to say it looks much better than the red -- and you shouldn't burn your legs on those aluminum frame sliders any more ;)

Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.

The folks at Yamaha should see that color. They don't offer anything that can compare.

Congrats! I'm happy you're back on the road. Does that mean you're coming down to SD with your GREEN bike now?

Nice work. Fizzy will always be red in her soul; it's the black frame.
 
Makes me crave New Mexican cuisine. Red or green? Correct answer - Christmas!

They have a similar colour on the bolt
 
This particular color is actually a chysler/jeep color called Black forest green

From what I've seen the Bolt color doesn't pop the same way, lacks the little extra metallic quality.

Rear shock has wrong end @ near silver collar end... The fz-07 has a solid mount @ at the rear tire and needs a " u " shaped end to mount...the top of the shock @ the hose end is correct...
