Hey Y’all..

Just brought home a 2008 with 13k and I’m excited to hit the road. Already farmers out pretty well with, bar risers, Yamaha top case, frame sliders, highway pegs, Ram mount and 12V socket, throttle lock, new tires and brake pads. Had just about every style of street bike except a cruiser. Last bike was a 2016 FJ09 and set out to make a 2week trip from Charlotte to Hyder AK camping as much as possible and failed after we hit Montana border. I think the heat and wind and lack of long seat time to break my butt in was what killed me. Bike was fun, but I just couldn’t make it on it. My brother in-law was on a 2016 Bandit 1250 and rode it from FL to AK and back in 16 days without a hitch. I don’t know if I’ll try it again but I’m definitely going to do some long rides with this beast.

Congratulations on the new bike. I think the FJR will suit you just fine. You still might need an aftermarket seat but maybe not.

Whoops! Just looked at the picture. Looks like you already have an upgraded seat and windshield.
