Nice riding with you guys. It's always great to find some new roads and meet new people. I hope someone brings home an FZ-09 because I sure wanted to.

You know what, I agree. The motor was great, and the brakes were good, but the suspension was way too soft and the fueling was brutal at low throttle openings. Tough buy when it needs another $1500 in fixes out of the box.

The throttle was choppy as the suspension was . Every thing about it was floppy and loose. No offense Tmax but I felt like i was riding a scooter. I had high hopes for that bike too.

! I was just wondering how so much torque could be put to good use...lol. That A mode was definitely on steroids. Too touchy on the throttle. I enjoyed it more in std. And B mode. I guess the A mode would be good for a faster pace?? The suspension was a bit too soft too. But that's a very interesting motor

I also tried the FJR1300. That was very smooth on power. Great bike all over... I liked it.
