Loving the FJR

I've had this bike for two years but every time I get on it I am still amazed at how smooth it is. Just returned from a twisties session in northern Arkansas and I am still in love with this motorcycle every time I ride her in the twisties.

Rocketman,,,, just to clarify,,,,, red is the fastest color,,,, period ������. Although the 07 red is pretty close.... depending on the rider of course....

I have owned my 2016 for 4 fantastic months and 7000 miles. It is the best overall motorcycle I have ever owned and ridden. It does everything so well. I have taken trips all over the eastern USA but have never been to Arkansas and the Ozarks. Now that I am in SC and a bit closer I might make a trip there. Look like a fun area to ride and explore.

Year before last we rode over and spent a week riding Ark roads based out of Eureka Springs. Great riding over there.

W8NONU introduced me to Arkansas. Fun place to ride.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

I'm just wrapping up my first 1000 miles, mostly commuting. Last Sunday did the full run of the Angeles Crest Hwy in the San Gabriel Mountains. If your a LA area rider (the California LA) you know it well. Coming from riding an FJ for the last 3 decades, it was different. Mostly in good way. I still need some miles on the bike to get more confident in the canyons. It was a nice ride. Clear skies and the for the most part so was the road. Got kind a chilling up at ski resort elevation about 55 degrees, had to zip my jacket up and activate the grip warmers! A poke at the guys in the getting nippy thread. Loving the FJR.

Ha ha, got kinda chilly at 55. I rode to work Monday morning at 14 degrees. It was 55 today on my way home though. No heated gear, just good clothing. Need to get some heated grips or gloves, finger tips get cold when it gets below freezing.
