My name is Steve and I'm new to the forum. I'm a Scorpio and I love long walks on the beach. I bought my first FJR this week and am very excited. I have a long history of two-wheel machines from mini bikes to dirt bikes, to a Heritage Softail Classic to my last bike being an R1. After my R1 got stolen I took some years off and I'm ready to get back into riding. My significant other is very supportive of the journey we're about to embark on. she enjoys riding on the back of a bike and we are going to take a motorcycle safety course together at the end of this month so she can get her license.
I bought my FJR from Poway Motorsports and I have to say that was the most pleasant dealer experience I have ever been through. I am the guy that normally will spend all day at an auto dealer haggling to get exactly what I want. this was not the case with my FJR. I emailed the dealer with my offer and they called me back the following day to accept it. They did not trying to add any additional fees as many dealers will do even for used bikes. I paid the price of the bike, sales tax, California tire fee and a title transfer fee and that was it. The staff there was extremely helpful.
2013, Stone Gray
Akrapovic slip ons
Yamaha 39L top case with backrest
Ram ball mounts
Yamaha frame sliders
Maybe aftermarket wind screen?
Tires even though low mileage, showed their age, bought a set of PR4GT's and hopefully they will be installed by the dealer by Friday afternoon.
The top case and mounting plate is only bolted to the factory plastic mount. I need to figure out how to make it to an SR357 mount since I'll probably get a larger Givi top case in the future.
I can't ride the bike right now, I had a testicle removed just over a week ago so it'll be a few weeks before I am able to ride. Just found out yesterday that it did contain cancer. So I am hopefully going to rent a truck and trailer on Saturday to bring it home but I am not sure if I'll be able to get the rental due to the high demand for 4th of July weekend. Might have to wait until next week.
Here are a couple of pictures of the bike. Is the fairing factory or did the previous owner add additional panels since the engine cover is not visible?
My wishlist of parts includes helibars mount, batter tender, additional USB outlets, SR357 mount, engine and luggage cages, GPS and a more comfortable seat since our goal is to travel much longer distance then my R1 would allow.
