:D I bought my Fury last week and just can’t go a day with out a ride. I love it. I would like to meet another owner that I can ride with sometime. I live in the Tampa Bay area. I was riding yesterday and saw a blue fury pass right in front of me. How beautiful it was. I bought a silver one she matches all my jewelry. I am quite the sight to see on the road I am a small woman at 5’1 and 125lbs so my girl looks like a big beast under me; and yes I ride a girl. I would like to ride on the highway but I’m afraid to get on it alone. If anyone knows a great place to ride that’s local for me let me know. Thanks
Lil Paulina

Thank you It's too hard to describe the feeling of riding such an amazing looking bike. I am stressed for time but I plan on getting a picture of it up soon.

Is it too cold to ride in Tx now? I am from ballinger tx but have lived here in Seminole now 13yrs.

Big guys like me can enjoy the Fury as well. At 6' and 300+ pounds I'm surprised this little bike can carry me around as fast as SHE does.

Wish I could come down to Florida and ride with you. It's cold and wet here in Kansas.:(

I almost bought the red one. I went into dealers shop and looked at it then we talked price and payments I told him what I could afford and he talked to me with hesitation so took my lil self to another dealer and with in 2 hours rode out on the silver one. The silver one seems like it's more stretched out. I do look awfully lil on it. So where are you located lil Ed? My husband had rode my bike and he 5'8 he is stetched out on it too. I let him ride it when it's cold out, I've been drinking or raining LOL.. have a wonderful day Hope your somewhere around tampa bay.

I'm glad to hear your ride is also a girl, what color did you get? How do you feel about breaking the motor in? I have been alittle too excited and have drove a bit crazy. I'm slowing down. Riding out here can be a death sentence with these florida drivers. I have had countless people pull right out infront of me. The days here are in the 80's but the night chill down to 60 burrr for me. Have a wonderful day.

Grats on your new bike... My dad lives near Tampa, so sooner or later I'll be making a road trip down there, maybe we all can hook up, but I live in SD... so I have to do some serious planning before that trip! Anyways, take some pics of you and your new ride... It's like a baby, the first precious few days and weeks will forever be gone in time if you don't capture it on film :D

I had to get the black. Just wouldn't have been happy with anything else. I didn't baby it for the first 600 miles, but I didn't push it like I do now either. These Honda engines are pretty tough. I'll tell you what the dealer told me. Enjoy your new bike. Don't turn the throttle to the stop in every gear, but have fun with it during break in. You don't have to ride on eggshells.

Congrats on your new ride. The more you ride it the better you will like it. Where abouts in Tampa do you live. I live in Spring Hill about 30 or 40 minutes north of Tampa. I got mine in late June and have just over 4200 miles on it. I have the red. Plenty of back roads this way.

I live in Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic side of Florida. I am currently serving in the middle east right now but plan on doing a ton of riding when I get home. You said you cant go a day without riding? It will be a total of just over six months till the next time my bum sits on my lady (Furina, shes Latino ;) ). Would like to ride across Florida and hook up with Fury riders in Tampa. I know there is a few that I met on here.

Furina... How freakin cute is that. Love it. I haven't named my fury yet. I just refer to her as My big beast, before her I had a Honda Rebel she was my Lil Beast. I live very close to Tampa and would love to ride in that area. I am too afraid to go over the bridge on my own but will follow someone else. I am mexican so I love the Latina name. Six months is along time to go with out the feeling of a nice ride. Thank you for service to our country, may God bless you daily and keep you safe. Cocoa beach is a beautiful area we travel to the east coast from time to time for surf trips. Have a good day :)

Congratulations and welcome! It's nice to have another lady join the ranks, especially here in Florida. I'm here in Melbourne and there are plenty of other riders from the state on here. Yeah, it's funny...I'm 5'8 and I get comments on how big the bike looks under me and how it's way too big for a girl. What do they know, right? Good Luck and don't let fear in your head when you're ridin. BTW, I always ride with my hubby. It does make me feel safer. You're not kiddin about Florida drivers!
