I am now an FJR owner!

Just picked up the 2014 FJR1300A today.

I had to ride for a bit to another dealer in state, but got what I thought was a pretty good deal for a new FJR. The local dealers wanted the MSRP plus a $500 shipping and set up fee and a $149 processing fee. Saved a bunch over that going somewhere else. Plus the other dealer let me take a test ride first and the local dealer won't allow test rides.

That meant I got in a nice long ride bringing the FJR home this afternoon. I like the ride of the FJR much better than the Shadow Phantom that I traded in.

Okay, here's some pics of my bike... And I think it was destined to be mine. I realized the last 3 digits of the VIN are my birthday (month and day).
