Congrats. Definitely a sweet bike. At 115HP, though, it would not have been my first choice as a "beginner" ride. Is it a brand new (2015) or a used one? If used, read this article where they talk about fueling and throttle sensitivity on earlier '09s.

Take care and enjoy!

The app sticks that crap in by default. I turned it off.

Thanks everyone! Definitely not taking out the bike till early April and after a few rainfalls to clear the roads.
I got the ECU re flashed by my dealer and im sticking to 'B' mode with extra cautious riding on the side roads for a few weeks until i start riding it on main roads.

Bought a used 2014 fz09. Got the ECU re flashed to match the 15's and im still thinking about getting a Power Commander V once i install a after market exhaust. I've ridden bikes before, so im not exactly a beginner. This is just the first bike ive personally owned.

I like to think of myself as a cautious and defensive driver, so I hope that road awareness will transfer to this bike lol. And im definitely keeping my wrist low on the throttle to avoid sudden jerks from bumps and what not.
