Re: A little BMW on the FJR
While I never had an issue with my BMW's being unreliable, they were getting a tad expensive for parts and normal up keep. I believe most of that is due to the Euro kicking the dollars ass as of late. I did choose the FJR over the Concours because it was proven and updated over the years where as the Connie is in its first year. As far as how they look, there was no contest.
At a little over a week and 1300 miles I really can't give a lot of feed back on the good and bad. It's smooth, great inline 4 and tranny. The norm - You will most likely need a custom seat, larger windscreen and most likely bar risers. There is more engine heat than a BMW but not bad and there is an adjust to airflow I have not tried yet.
Bottom line at this point, I had Rick Mayer make me a seat, I'm waiting for my Cee Bailey shield and I'm enjoying the ride for now.
