I am in Jersey City. I have been riding with some guys in NJ, but none of them have FZ 07. Would love to meet, go for a ride, and have a beer with some guys on FZ/MT 07s.

Brooklyn here. New rider. I just took the MSF class and started riding this week. I stall out at least two times everyday. I got a bike so I can commute to work in Midtown. I don't know what I was thinking. 5 mph stop and go rush hour traffic really makes you learn the friction zone. And I'm not splitting lanes with cars yet because I'm not that comfortable. lol

Midtown Manhattan is probably the scariest place to ride a bike. The taxis are insane. The maneuvers they make put the FZ-07 to shame. Besides the taxis, I have to dodge pedestrians and potholes all at the same time. Sounds like that show 1,000 ways to die. Going over the Brooklyn Bridge with the bike is pretty cool. The shame of owning a bike in NYC is that the streets are terrible and you can never really open up the throttle.

Anyway, I absolutely love the bike. I fell in love with it the second I saw it. It was definitely an emotional decision. lol. I started with a 600cc+ bike because I'm 305 lbs and when i took MSF class, the 250cc was a joke. The Yamaha still feels pretty damn fast though.

So nice to meet you all. Maybe one day we'll bump into each other on the street and go riding.
