So my 2018 MT-09 was delivered by trailer a few weeks ago, and is now parked for what will surely be the longest winter of my life.

Started riding in the early 1980s, and have always been on one Yamaha or another. DT100, SR250, XJ1100, XVS1100, XVS1300 and now the MT. (Bonus points if you can spot the 20-year gap while I raised a family.)

Anyone else here in the old-guy club and/or coming from a cruiser bike? My friends and family think I'm nuts for buying an MT, but I suspect that these bikes have broader appeal than people think.

Welcome, from the left Coast! I am on Vancouver Island, and decided after a cruiser, although a muscle cruiser, a nice old V65 Magna, that I missed carving corners still. The last crotch rocket was an R1, but my body did not enjoy more than an hour or so on it. I did a demo day and fell for the FZ07 and 09, both great little bikes. Decided on the 09 and have been modding it since!!
