First off would like to say thanks for the welcome to the forum. So I've been looking to get a motorcycle for a while now and I'm really set on either the Fz-07 or the 09. However I really like the 09's because of the color options and the way it looks. People are going to ask my riding experience, which on the street is none. However I have been riding dirt-bikes for 6 years and am now looking to get on the road. I have read the forums about the 09 not being a beginner bike which I won't argue at at all. Just the price point between the two bikes is really minimal and I want to get the most for my money. I don't want to get the 07 and then later wish it was the 09. I'm not an overzealous rider by any means. I feel fairly confident I could handle this beast with respect. Just looking to get input on which you guys would recommend.
