Hi Colly,
I just bought my first one last week moved over from Pan Euro, upon which we had a great ride round the emerald Isle.

Hi all. A while back I used to annoy you guys n "gals"....(any gals on here yet?) with the odd post and then I went feral and became a traitor,sold my 02 FJR, spent some time riding cruisers and then saw tha error of me ways. So I have returned to annoy yas again, this time with a new 05 which I got a good deal on. The dealer had to make some pretty good concessions to convince me to part with some $$$.....very few in fact. I didn't mind buying the superseded model..........the fact I have another FJR will do just fine!
cheers from oz, Tai

How dose the FJR cope with getting out of Pot Holes then?
Have the roads improved in the last 10 years?

I managed to break a section of leaf spring on a Toyta HiLux ,while working there, just out of Nenagh. The roads had the bigest pot holes I have seen. You'd need a bloody ladder to get out of them.
Do old Ladies with cows still cross the Motor Ways?

Great place , but I would be a bit nervous about riding my bike there.
Did hear things have improved.
The black stuff , sure you could run the bike on it......
Hello to you.

Good move Taipan, I did exactly the same, bought a brand new 05 this year in a dealer run out sale. and scored a NZ$8600 discount off the new price. Before taking delivery the dealer phoned me and said he had another buyer who offered me NZ$4K above what I was paying, I should have taken the deal but I always wanted one of these but couldn't stretch to the $ at normal retail. I guess, like you, I save a years depreciation.

Thanks for the welcome guys. Potholes are still about....but the FJR handles them better than the cruisers. Yes...I would have liked the 06, maybe in a coupla years. For now the 05 will suffice and I think I will be happy to see the others here weed out any gremlins in the new model.
Cheers Tai

Still a few potholes around, just adds to the fun!

As for women with cows, they all have suv's now!!! even more dangerous.
