Greetings from the very hot SoCal dez. This past Saturday traded my 2006 Ducati 749 for a brand-new 2016 FZ-07 at Del Amo Motorsports in Long Beach, CA. Having a 2-wheel Ferrari for a decade was exciting, but very expensive and uncomfortable (sitting on the exhaust when it's over 90-F out is no bloody fun!). Was tempted by the Ducati Scrambler, but the reliability and practicality compared to the "Yammie" suffered. Then again, the "9" was also very tempting, but the reviews I saw on YouTube, including by Ari Henning of Sport Rider, all said the "7" was a better choice than the "9" for most riders. I'm only 5'8", so the lower seat and narrower fuel tank both appealed to me. My first ride was 90 minutes on crowded SoCal freeways, lane-splitting most of the way with no problem. I really like that the break-in period allows you to go freeway speeds, as 5,000rpm gives you 68MPH. Not quite sure yet how much I like the battleship grey/chicken s*** green paint scheme, but I'm sure it'll grow on me.
