So I've been looking at FJRs for a while now. I feel like I'm due for an upgrade to fuel injection and abs after 15yrs of street riding.
I'm coming from an older CBR1000f that I've loved since 2005. I also had a Honda Magna and a klr650 for several years (and rode various dirt bikes since I was about
I chose an fjr because I like the way they look, and I want an S/T bike. I'm not ready for a cruiser yet, but me a my gf will be riding 2 up. She's fine on my old cbr, and figure this will be similar. I rode my friend's 06 fjr years ago and liked it.
The bike I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy (after looking it over and test riding it) is a black 2009 w/12k miles for $4500. Any thoughts on that price? It has a couple of scratches that are barely noticeable, but otherwise in beautiful condition and garage kept. $600 service with complete fluid change was just done. Comes with a cover, 2 person Bluetooth, and a couple of other little things. The guy bought it from a dealer 4yrs ago and has only put a couple k miles on it since.
Obviously low miles (which I sometimes see as a bad thing). Anything I should be looking for?
I also looked at a 2010 w/32k for around $5k, but it sold. It had a givi top box (which I liked).
I'm probably going to get a top box in the future, so any help there would be appreciated (between mounts and plates and boxes, I'm not sure where to go)
Also, I definitely would like to get a passenger back rest. Any recommendations for something decent that isn't super expensive?
