Ha, isn't that the way it always works? LOL.
Thanks for all the welcomes to the Forum. I am looking forward to learning all I can about this FJR from all of you who have been riding, maintaining and loving this bike for quite a while.
Definitely up for some group rides around the Hill Country if I get the chance to meet up with some fellow FJR owners. If not, my better half and I will be riding on the weekends to as many BBQ joints as we can.
Few things I have put on the mandatory list, some out of necessity and some out of an old surgically repaired back:
- Heli-Bar Risers
- Tires (only 2400 miles on them, but they are indeed 18 years old)
- Reflective 3M tape for panniers and trunk (Austin is bad for cagers not paying attention to motorcycles)
I will take the guards into consideration. Never had a problem with dropping my Goldwings or other heavy bikes, so not sure I will need them, but I understand the insurance against damaging these beautiful panels and panniers.
