Good morning, I just picked up my new blazing orange FZ-09 from Central Maine Power Sports. I have previously owned a 79' KZ 1000, 89' Katana 1100, 83' V65 Magna, and just came off a 99' CBR 1100XX. After racking up only 75 miles I can honestly say this bike is THE most fun. I haven't taken it out of standard mode and it has impressed the heck out of me. The common issues that are talked about are tolerable for me at least for now. I think Yamaha really found something great with this engine. It has a ton of pull and the sound is really nice for a stock system. Anyway, thank you for having me on this forum and I look forward to learning more about this bike and racking up a lot more miles with a permanent grin. Cheers!! :)

Welcome! The FZ-09 is a great bike and you got the right color!

I miss Maine. I grew up in Gardiner. Left in 86 when I joined the Army and stayed out west. Tried to move back in 94 but only stayed 6 months because I just couldn't find a decent paying job. But man, Maine is a great place with some tore up, but beautiful roads.

Welcome. Guess they didn't have the red? The orange does look cool, and it is second fastest.

Hello OrangeFZ.....and welcome to the forum. Congrats on the new bike. I've got a Red one myself, but I really do like the Orange one also, it's got a beautiful paint job on it. I also had a '99 BlackBird and sold it way back in 2005. Are you or were you ever on the CBR1100XX.org forum? I'm still on there, even though I haven't owned one in almost 9 years. I've made a lot of good friends over there and on that forum, I go by... "xrated", as in CBR1100 "XX".

Thanks, yeah the XX is still a great bike even by today's standards. I was never a member of that forum, but that is one bike I wish I had never sold.
