Hello from Southeast Georgia!
Hi all, I'm Alex. I am a 14 year active duty member of the US Navy who is stationed in S.E. Georgia. I am 100% brand new to motorcycles, but at 32 years old, I feel that there's no better time to start riding than the present. I put down a deposit on a 2015 Liquid Graphite Yamaha FZ-07, so now it's time to play the waiting game. In the meantime, I'm watching YouTube videos, reading articles, and looking at accessories to tide me over. I went through the BRC in March of this year and had a BLAST, but work has been crazy over the last few months so making a purchase got put on the back burner. Which, as it turns out, was extremely fortuitous for me since Yamaha just released the 07 which seems like a perfect first bike for me. I have always loved the look of streetfighters/naked street bikes and for the price point I don't think there is anything on the market, new or used, that compares to the 07.
Anywho, I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and learning tons from this community.
