Had atv's all my life, just bought a motorcycle for multiple reasons i went with a dual sport on/off road bike that gets 74mpg and has a 150 mile range. its been fun learning to ride and scary sometimes when reaching the edge of my limited driving ability :)

That's what I -should- have bought. Instead, I bought this. :whistle:

Have fun and be safe. Everyone else on the road really are trying to kill you!

Yep, and that's one of the reasons that I have pretty much quit riding mine and am in the process of selling it.
Even with what I got to replace it (2017 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth) they try their best to run over you in it!, and honestly haven't missed the bike that much.
At least I did take a nice iron butt ride on it.

Here it is rigged out for that trip - was on my way back from W. Virginia to Texas and stopped off at the Wild Turkey distillery.

I gave up my bike and riding when my best friend became one with a telephone pole...

I love the sport bikes... but at my age I was afraid that I'd end up in a permanent "monkey humping a football" position for normal posture. :p
I've got the pimper LED's on the FJR also, but hardly used them, especially during riding because until lately in Texas they could get you stopped and still in many states will.

Indeed. This has a more upright riding position than a pure supersport for that reason.

Prior bike was a Katana, and after 3-4 hours of riding i was hurting.

I can get wicked leans in comfort on this :)

I hate drivers that slow down when you can't pass and then speed up to try to prevent you from getting around.


and then you get behind those slow pokes that ruin your fun


and yet another redneck driver in a truck
