1k miles in...
I'm closing in on 1k miles on the '16A since I purchased it used. Still haven't read the whole owner's manual and I know there's things I need to learn about the bike, adjustments to be made, etc.
Overall though, I'm really pleased w/it, as is my passenger, my daughter. Both of us are very comfortable. To that point, last weekend during our ride, my daughter started falling asleep on the back! Caught me off-guard, for sure.
I'm still chuckling at you guys who have modded the **** out of your bikes as I've found little to fault w/it yet, including the seat & windscreen (altho I know I'll change them both out eventually.) I come from the world of the ZRX, Ninja 1000 & Mustangs tho, so I understand the modding diseases and I too will eventually be infected... But not yet.
Still, you guys who complain about the seats/screens have apparently never owned a Kawasaki- worst OE seats on the planet. The OEM FJR seat is a dream in comparison! Screens on Kawis are barely above acceptable & always need to be replaced immediately upon purchase. Not so w/the FJR, at least in my opinion.
Glad I got the new tires on so I can push the bike a little more comfortably in the corners and curves.
