Greetings all from the Steel City...

It's a pleasure to be the proud owner of a new to me, 2014 FJR 1300ES...so glad to have found this Forum! I have a great friend in Wisconsin who had this bike for sale, knowing how well he treats his bikes, it was a no brainer. Two flights to get there and getting to know her on some great northern Wisconsin back roads and we became one, Lol.

I'm still amazed at this bikes performance, handling, features, (I could go on) and an almost 60 old feels like he's back in his twenties. I kind of describe the bike as an offspring to a Goldwing and a Hayabusa that had a one night stand, whoopee! Already had Canyon Cages, T Rex Saddlebag guards, Lust Racing Lowering Links, and a YES transferable warranty good until next September. Take care all!

Welcome! You chose the fastest FJR made. The red ones are given special treatment at the factory. Sooner or later our Cajun buddy will come along and tell you it is Lace Panty Pink. His dad has one and he can't keep up.
Enjoy the bike.

Well since I don't want to offend anyone...We'll call it Lipstick Pink.

The 2014 Lipstick Pink is actually one of the slowest of all FJRs. This is due to the paint actually being too smooth. The lipstick, nail polish and rose petals that are the basis of the '14 Lipstick Pink actually makes the surface so smooth that it makes the bike slower. With ordinary paint there are pores that the air can cling to and therefore as the bike moves we have air molecules sliding over the air molecules that are clinging to the surface of the paint. With the '14 the air is sliding on the paint surface, friction is created and the bike is slowed. Some of you with that matte blue finish have benefited from the increased aerodynamics of the matte/textured surface.

Y'all can thank me later for this little science lesson.

Never run out of ideas, traction, and real estate at the same time.
