A little update
As I've mentioned earlier, I post here only because I've had a few folks ask for more details on how I like the FJR. I have no intention of stirring any kind of FJR vs. GT debate. IMHO, you can't go wrong with either bike. So...
I'm telling you, the FJR is the finest bike I've ever owned. I just can not express how much fun it is to ride. It's got everything I want in a bike and looks so freakin' awesome, IMNSHO. Lite, fast, agile, all day comfy, ABS with no servos, shaft drive that doesn't fail, great seat, great windshield, great bags...What's not to love?
Oh, and no heat at all. Tons of underseat storage, battery access in 15 seconds and a 250 mile range.
I really like how the bag mounts completely disappear when you take the bags off. Looks like a sport bike without them.
The tweaks they made to the suspension and the longer swingarm really nailed the handling. Like flying on rails.
Now if only the FJR world had a virtual family like this...
