Wanted to make a thread for my 2015 FZ-07. I live in Richmond, VA and motovlog for fun while I'm out riding and exploring.

Will be posting more Pictures of my bike and future videos in this thread. Love these forums they give me inspiration and ideas for what to do to my FZ-07.

Here is my latest video! I went out with a fellow motovlogger named Cuban Rider. He took me to his "wheelie spot" so I could practice wheelies for the first time. I've never done wheelies on any bike other then when I was a kid on a bicycle. Had a blast getting used to the FZ-07 and how easy it is to power wheelie in 2nd gear. Can't wait to get out there again and practice more.

Well went out for a nice group ride today. All was going great until I made a left hand turn and ran into a huge pile of gravel that blended in with the asphalt. Luckily no serious injury as it was a very slow crash. Bike has mostly cosmetic damage. Glad I had frame sliders, wish I had spool and engine covers. Lesson learned. Video to follow.

I envy you. Not for the crash of course. But, if I could wheelie, I'd do it all the way home from work everyday!

Haha well I'm not that great at wheelies yet but I do enjoy them a lot. Once I get better and more comfortable I feel like I'll be doing them all the time.

What bars are those? Sorry about your spill, bud. Looked like you couldn't have asked for a better crash though.

Glad you're alright. It's hard to lean on old, broken up/pebbly asphalt. It's acts like little BB's so keep an eye out for changes in road surface. Be safe!

Was doing the exact same thing this morning. It really is easy to power wheelie on 2nd. The only thing I hate is you have to roll your wrist to the front to be able to give it more throttle. Hopefully the R6 throttle I've ordered will make a difference on that.
 
Keep it up!

Motovlogger program update.
 
I do a fair amount of advertising in my day job. It's time we start an fz07 moto vlogger network that helps ea other get more views, subscribers and if you sign up for adsense, more revenue.
 
I built a network for an industry in my dayjob and they are all rocking. Time to get our piece of the video pie, right?
 
If you are 18 and over, can commit to sharing vids and putting links in your youtube settings that wll auto populate in the desc of all of your uploads, and a few other occaisional tasks to feed each other, send me a pm.
 
I am creating a new section for this, have alot more details coming soon and we are the largest fz07 forum in da world and we have a few others too.
 
We can build a power network that can eventually dominate and help each other learn the many shortcuts to rendering, editing and posting video content. I also know companies who pay for prodict placements or mentions in videos. I know alot of advertising agencies.
 
Hint at some of what is up my sleeve? I own a few VR related domains and am working on something cool.
 
Send me a PM if you are serious about building both your and your network partners Youtube and ?? social media content. All feeding ea other!

New video is up! Out practicing more wheelies and possibly stunting someday soon?! We will see would love to pick up a cage so I don't need to worry about wrecking the bike. I think it would be awesome to be able to stunt maybe one day. Hope you enjoy!

I'm sorry you crashed, but I am now glad to know what parts actually impact the ground before buying sliders and case guards. The frame slider topic seems to be controversial as too what damage they can do to your engine mounts and what if any negative affect they have. Yours seemed to break away cleanly, but still provided some protection. What brand were those, and will you replace with the same ones? Thanks.
