Thanks for adding me to the group. Im from central Pa, just outside of State College. Im selling my 2015 Yamaha bolt r-spec this morning, will be looking for a FJR.

Welcome, Calvin.
Was the bolt underpowered ?
I always liked the look of those.
Good luck on your search.

60ish 0hp and you could feel the torque. I liked the bike and may own another sometime. Just wanted something for longer trips. Ive been eyeing up the FJR for two years now. I had Ivan flash my ecu to go along with my exhaust and intake. The bike didn't come with factory passenger seat so did that upgrade, but went with factory Yamaha. I liked the look of the r-spec seats. Not long after that I got the Mustang seat, much better. All in all I would say the bike was fun and had a great sound.

Welcome Calvin, from your pics of the Bolt, your a farkler alright. Coming from a Bolt and being 2 up and long trips are the scheme, first two farkles are Helibars to bring the bars back and up slightly. Second, Russell Day Long or Seth Lamm seats. Both seats that is, not just the rider's. You'll save money in the long run by not wasting it on anything less. Those two items are the top of the food chain, and price category. But never wasted monies. As for maintenance, do it yourself, it's easy and light, she runs on her own, your only a passenger. Enjoy........

Howdy. Welcome.

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