What's up everyone... fellow enthusiast from LA here. Woke up on Saturday and decided to get back into riding. Rode home on the sexy matte.

Here's what I've noticed so far:

Twitchy throttle characteristics. I have yet to read threads on this, but when rolling onto the throttle out of a corner it feels like the throttle is an ON/OFF switch. It's better when using the rear brake, but it's still noticeable.

Re-application of throttle even when cruising in sixth gear can be harsh.

Rear brake has good feel and modulation.

Decent amounts of torque. I like. :)

Suspension needs tuning, possibly an upgrade. However, this isn't a super sport so it isn't an apples to apples comparison.

Riding position. I come from R6, CBR600RR and R1 history. Wow this is sooooooooo comfortable, LOL. Does this mean I'm getting old?

All in all, it's a big toy and I'm having fun with it. I look forward to meeting and riding w/ fellow FZ-09 riders.
