Still Here

Hi All,


Been a long time hasn't it.


Still riding my wonderful FJR and it is still giving me fantastic service.
Change oil and filter every 3000km as well as the final drive oil and that's about it.
I ride every day rain hail or shine with my son getting his P's he takes the spare car.


Ride Safe
Tyrone

You change the oil every 1864 miles? Hope the tree huggers don't hear about that they will be picketing your house. LOL

Give the guy a break. It's 1864.11358 miles. A huge difference!

Pter., at least he doesn't need to obsess about oil and filters. At 3 Mm. (megameters), even a Fram will be good enough.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

Who needs brakes - they only slow you down
