Cool New Owner 2020 FJR1300ES

Greetings,

Am so glad to be part of this forum as I purchased my fjr last weekend and am looking forward to learning stuff from you all. I also own a Honda vtx1300c since 2006 (model 2005) but I was looking for something new and exciting and that is how I ended up buying the fjr.

Looking forward to many many years of discussions on this forum.

Cheers

Night and day difference between your 1300 VTX and the 1300 FJR. I also have a vtx which loves low rpm's. The FJR cry's for high rpm's. You'll get used to the FJR and when you ride your VTX, you'll be hitting the rev limiter and love it also. I ride my VTX a lot higher rev than I used to before the FJR and the VTX acts like a whole nuther bike.

Welcome to the forum!
Congratulations on your new FJR!
Forum is the BEST resource for information on any aspect of the bike you might need to research, and if not found with the search feature just ask, there are several forum member with profound knowledge of motorcycles in general and of the fjr intricacies in particular.
Cheers!

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

Nothing like a new set of wheels is there? Glad you're happy with your choice.
