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!!
