I'm new to the site (although I've been lurking for a bit to take in the advice) and the proud new owner of a 2018 FJR1300 ES. I love this bike! I'm coming off of years of riding on a 1992 Honda VFR750.
I'm up on the North Shore of Massachusetts, right by New Hampshire.
My bike was a trade-in with less than 100 miles on it. The story was that the guy bought it new and drove it straight to a Harley dealership to trade it in. Not sure why. There's a bit of speed wobble, so the tapered bearing swap may be in my off-season plans. Could be that it was too much for the previous owner? Anyway, his loss was my gain!
Great site with a ton of useful info. I've been enjoying the spirited debates about seats, oil, tires, etc. I'm happy there are still lots of choices in the aftermarket for this bike.
I installed my T-Rex guards as of last night. Now I need to do the 600 mile check and then start cranking out the miles.
Looking forward to learning more about the FJR. Thanks!
