Hey everyone. I'll post some pics, but just picked up Saturday the blazing orange FZ09 with 8 miles. Break in was some hard core riding in the Texas Hill Country. Within first 75 miles, I was leaving my friends. (They were on 2010 CBR1000RR, 2006 Aprillia Tuono Factory R, 2006 Ducati 999, 2002 GoldWing). Beautiful bike and couldn't agree more with some authors that said it was more fun than an R6, and I've had 3 of them are now my 2nd favorite bike to this one. Since Saturday I've already put 500 miles on it and still can't wipe the smile off my face.

Nice! I've wanted to take my orange beast up to Twisted Sisters since I got it...

Steve, the orange is stunning in ANY sunshine. And so much faster than red. ;)

I love the hill country. There's nothing like it in the Houston area. This weekend, I was visiting the area between Sealy and La Grange when I decided to explore south of La Grange. I didn't find the "chicken ranch" but there is some terrific riding between there and Schulenburg. The hairpins after crossing the Colorado river are especially cool. It's not the hill country but good enough to entice me to return and to explore south of Schulenburg.

I just realized you are talking about the 3 sisters. Twisted Sister was a rock group back in the eighties.
