Good Morning

Hello to everyone, nice to be part of the forum. Im going dis morning to pick up the new FJR. Ill be coming from a 2016 Roadglide. Couldn't take the suspension on the HD anymore. You would think a billion doller company would spend time on one of the most important parts of a Touring Motorcycle, the suspension. I shouldn't have to spend another 3k on Ohlins or whatever is cheaper for the front and rear of a 25k bike. I say Ohlins because i know they deliver. The suspension is one of the big reasons I decided on the FJR. Lets see how the stock seat works out, iv never had a stock seat work out. Well everyone have a great day.

Welcome first & foremost. Believe you'll find the stock suspension on your new FJR to be much improved from your HD. Plenty of suspension/seat threads here if you want to look.

Welcome! You'll be able to enjoy the twisty roads now with your FJR. And its speed is deceptive. 100 mph feels like 50 mph.
