Thumbs up Hello from 'Murika!

Hey guys...
I am joining you guys from the "Land of Democracy". Hah!
I bought a 2014 Yamaha FZ-09 in Liquid Graphite November 25th.

I hope you guys don't mind pictures:

The day I bought/rode her home from the dealership (it was -1C):

During the 30 mile ride back home, I started the Motoman break in... I was pleased when I pulled into my garage:

By Dec. 2nd I already had some goodies at my doorstep (T Rex Racing protection package):

Of course the Motoman break in calls for an oil change after riding the bike hard, but in a specific manner:

The next day I decided to wire up a USB charger since I use my iPotato a lot during rides (GPS, Music, etc).

Dec. 7th was a nice day out and I decided to take a ride with my buddy:

Uh oh, more goodies!

Dec. 21st was another unusually warm day (15C)... so took a ride to my local motoshop:

I didn't care for the stock mirrors... so bar end it is:

Much better! (Don't mind the wires hanging around...

No more ugly stock lights:

Oh, and my best friend is an Electrical Engineer, so he hooked me up with a custom tail light which has a running light, a brake light, and integrated turn signals!

Thanks for looking!
