Also just bought "a new to me '05"
I just bought an '05 FJR (and after just a week I'm completely in love with it). I started looking for a forum where I could ask questions and hopefully get to know some other FJR owners, and, hey, I found this one quickly. So, hi everyone!
I saw David's post and couldn't help but laugh - I had no idea I'd bump into someone who just bought an FJR that was the same year model as mine. David, I hope you're enjoying yours as much as I am mine!
So, a (tiny) bit about my bike... I traded in my '04 FZ6 to get it, in part because I wanted something my wife would actually be willing to get on. The catch is, I don't have a backrest yet. I also want a trunk (the saddle bags are a bit small), so I'm looking for a trunk with the backrest on it already. I'd prefer to have the factory model, but I'm not completely set on it. I've looked around and realized that finding a trunk for an '05 isn't going to be easy, so I'm hoping y'all can help me out a bit.
1. Any thoughts on good places to look for a bag that fits an '05?
2. What year ranges are compatible with my bike? I have no idea of how much (or little) wiggle room I've got here.
3. Any body here in Central Ohio? I'm hoping to catch up IRL with some other FJR owners.
Thank you for any helpful advice you can offer, and catch y'all later!
