I hate traffic and think the only thing that could make traffic "fun" would be a motard type machine. The FJR, with its wide handlebars and wide range of steering lock, does just fine at low or high speed direction changes and parking lot crawls.fjrk9 said:is the fjr a fun bike in traffic and how about lane changes,i am curious as i anxiously wait for the delivery of my 06 fjrA model.............
How true that is. When I had my first FJR I was going through a period at work where I did a lot of riding to either Brum or Leeds and could squeeze though anything. For the last year, I've had to do a lot less of that and as a result feel really deskilled at filtering, although husband reckons that'll stop me (quite rightly he believes it's a tad dangerous :shock: )Tony said:Depends how often you ride in traffic, I do the commute into town daily & can squeeze through gaps the wife struggles to get through on her CBF600 & thats with the panniers on the FJR.
I stand corrected Stu!Bagman said:Woody and Glen are both correct.
Both the Motard and the Mudplugger come in 450 and 550 versions.
If the mirrors go through so will the rest, but some Scots taxi drivers did not seem to appreciate that fact :lol:
