New 2019 FJR1300 Matt blue

Hello,
Just got this new, left over, last week in the Denver area and love the bikes. While ive owned many, many bikes this is one of my favorite. Ill use it for my fun sport tourer and grocery getter, Not sure what im going to do with my 2010 BMW r1200r now. Oh and am I the only one that didnt know that in cruise control, if you roll the throttle a little past stop it will turn off cruise? I think I like that better than using the brakes.
Anyway so far some great info on this site.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new FJR!!! It's a great bike, I'm just wondering how far your groceries are; if THIS is your grocery getter...I'd hate to know what your REAL bike is. LOL

Congrats on the acquisition! One friendly piece of advice- take the time to actually RTFM. Little gems like the throttle thing might actually be contained within!*


[humor]

* I have an old POS gen2 without cruise control so I can't say definitively that such information is contained within any "FM" you may (or may not) choose to "R". Hence the word "might" in my statement above.

[/poor excuse at humor].

Or humour, depending.

My BMW, Harley and '13 Feeger all deactivate the cruise with a forward roll. Welcome to the crowd...

Welcome, Joe! This is a great site and many great people! Well except for MaximRebel... You gotta watch him closely! LOL (Seriously, though, you will not find a more knowledgeable, friendly, helpful bunch of people! You are in the virtual presence of amazing folks, even MaximRebel! I know I am in awe every time I read a thread!)

Nice pic, and that is a nice looking bike!!!

When I first saw a picture of the matte blue '19 I didn't like it but over time I've come to really like it almost as much as the '14 red. I've never actually seen either bike accept in pictures. It would be hard to choose between the red and blue both beauties.
