Howdy all! Just another new guy from Australia. Been lurking for quite a while and finally joined up today since I picked up my new Mt09!

Coming from a Fz1-n this bike seems very familiar yet has its own little quirks. Looking forward to the mods and rides to come.

Cheers!

Managed to get in 216km today.

Aloha and welcome! Nice choice on the color-good looking combo. Look forward to hearing your impressions as you accumulate the miles, and to seeing the pics as the mods go on. Ride safely down there brah...

Congrats fellow aussie...so I was looking at the fz1 but went for the 09. .is there a big difference between the 2?..I went from a gt250r hyosung so the jump to the mt is like being tied to a jato rocket. ..no joke.

Honestly mate I've only done 200km so I don't think I can give a fair comparison. Having said that, initial impressions is that the fz-1 has a lot more pick up, however it is also a fair chunk heavier. Also as a lot of people have already noted the suspension on the 09 has room for improvement. Originally I was hoping for a 1290 superduke, but being a Yamaha fanboy I decided on the 09. I figure it's more fun doing this beast up as opposed to spending all those extra $ on the ktm.
