Hi All,

Last October I traded my 2012 FZ01 in for my dream bike, a 2016 FJR1300ES. I love this motorcycle and I'm excited to join the forum. I visited many times before and the forum helped me make the leap.

There are a few of us Chicago folks here on the forum, welcome!


I bought mine ('15 A) from BBK in Elgin. Where did you buy yours?


Lots of great info, funny jokes, and many "look backs" from riders from all over the world. I enjoy my time here.

FJRChi,

Welcome to the FJR sandbox, from the high deserts of the West.

. . .

Cheers,
Red

- Pirelli Angel GT (Spec A) tires, RDL seat, TPMS, GPS digital speedometer (Amazon ~US$28.00).
P.S. Life is too short, and health is too valuable, to ride on cheap parade-duty tires.

Got the same bike couple weeks ago and now trying to sell my versys 650. FJR was my dream bike for 8 years. I smile by just looking at it. I am in heaven when riding it.

Howdy. welcome to the forum.

Welcome, I upgraded from a 2005 to a 13 and what a leap, I'm sure it's wildly different from the FZ01, I had a chance to ride a buddy's and did not care for it much, although the power was adequate. I just couldn't get over the handlebars on the FZ01, I love the FJR bars, although I would like the stock triple tree over the Heli-bars that came with it.

2013 FJR1300A - mostly stock

2005 FJR1300 - Sold
