Hey there folks.
New guy here from CT.
I am hopelessly in lust with the new FZ-09.

Things I like:

- Riding
- Naked bikes
- Good food
- Triples
- Snowboarding
- Reliability
- Mountain biking
- Gray & Purple (2 favorite colors)
- Fishing

Anywho, I think (know) I might like (love) the FZ-09.

A few issues though:
- My wife and I do some longer riding (sport touring, if you will). I want the FZ-09.
- I currently own a VFR800A I want the FZ-09.
- I have a strong feeling my wife will be highly disappointed in the "new saddle"... especially since the "Niner" is brand new and Sargent hasn't even hinted at a seat for it. I want the FZ-09.
- Storage... Currently the VFR is outfitted with hard side bags and a top case... But to be honest, I'd be fine with a 46L top case. I want the FZ-09.

Did I mention I really want the FZ-09?!

Wife and I at the App Gap on the Viffer.

Welcome aboard. We get it. However, in the name of full disclosure, one of the super moderators is named "triple" threat. The post title scared me for a sec.

In all reality, you'll find great pics, videos, advice, and technical wisdom on the FZ-09 on the forum. A lot of guys have one, some guys are looking, and some are dreaming. It's all good!

Ha!
I've been lurking for a bit so I know this site is ramping up some awesome knowledge, photos, videos, etc.
I did not know about this Triple Threat character... but is he dreamy?

Thank you for pointing me in the direction of the Forum!

At first blush my wife felt the seat to be more supportive/comfortable than that of our previous bike (GEN II FZ1). We shall see how things progress once we get a few miles under our belt!

No problem!
And I hope that is the case with the seat.
That will be the ultimate deal breaker for me.
I hope Sargent or Seat Concepts comes out with an aftermarket seat ASAP.

Uh, my wife thinks so, but then again, she might be a little prejudiced in my direction. Hmmm, "dreamy".... I've been called a LOT of things in my lifetime, but "dreamy" isn't usually one of them....guess it's all in your perspective huh? :cool:
