You have embarked on a truly inspiring and fascinating journey on what will probably be one of the best riding experiences of your life! I know I have!
Couple of things, put your bike's year and model in your signature, so when we talk about them, we can immediately see what we are talking about. Also, edit your profile, so we can see where you are! That may help, another member who may be close to you, to inspire an ad-hoc ride, some day!
The esteemed folks who are members of this site... are some of the most thoughtful, knowledgeable, and intelligent riders, which I have ever encountered!
Their vast and deep understanding of this most noble steed, is most impressive, awe inspiring, and admirable!
This is a safe, fun, interesting and helpful group and I am honored to be in their presence! I have benefitted greatly, from their experiences and advice!
Red is spot on when he talks about tire pressure! 2 lbs on the front tire, can totally alter your riding experience! As you progress, you may find that actual tire brands may do the same!
As on any site, you will find threads ad nauseam about tire, oil, etc. but your own experiences will be your best guide. Over my many years of riding and having installed many brands of tires, I have found, for me, my body frame, and my riding style, that Metzeler tires work best for me. You may find a different brand does the same for you!
Don't be shy, share your knowledge and experiences here and you will have a great time!
I look forward to many of your experiences on your FJR!
