Evening all,

Just got my FZ-09 last night. Traded in a 2003 VROD for it. I have been shunned by some, but was already mocked by Harley purists since I didn't have a real HD, but a VROD, according to them lol. I am very happy with the bike. I keep popping wheelies on accident though. Just used to the 700 lbs I used to have and no worries of wheelies. Anyways, look forward to talking to you all!

Dave

Welcome aboard.

Shame you did not get the bike a couple of months ago. You missed the big San Diego ride.

We had a dozen Fz09's and a few other bikes too.

It was an all day sucker, no crashes, and nuthin but fun.

Next time.

Welcome aboard! :) You'll have to retrain your brain/wrist interface if you plan to keep the front wheel on the ground... ;)

Welcome to the forum. I'm also in San Diego. Oceanside area. Lot's of good riding areas here for the 09.

Harley's really suck when comparing to the FZ-09 anyway.

Just had to say it....

Thanks guys. So far, I have only seen an FZ-07 on base near me. I didn't know this bike existed. I was originally looking at the Ducati Monster 821 but saw this and it only made sense. Same bike, much cheaper.

Welcome and congratulations. Same bike as the Ducati? I don't think so. A super smooth triple versus still another V-twin. You will love this engine!

Apples and Oranges. I can do 500 miles in a day and get off my Harley with a smile. If I tried that on my FZ09 I would be crippled by the end of the day.
