Hi I'm the new guy-
Just picked up a 08 FJR for $100.00.
It was locked away for a few years worse then O.J. after killing his wife.
So with that said this is my current project.
Rats and other animals made this poor bike home for the past 5 years.
I served them with eviction notices with some good old white privilege high pressure h20.
So as I have spent 6hr with a shop VAC removing what I thought was tootsie roll Mini "didn't taste like it"
I have determined the bike needs NEW!$$$$$$$$$
1. Varicose veins "wire harness "
2. AAA battery
3. Complete fluid change.
4. The wonderful world of I don't fucking know yet..
Tire Wheel Automotive tire Motor vehicle Vehicle
Wheel Tire Automotive tire Hood Motor vehicle

..
I will update as i truck along. This will end in internal combustion GLORY!!!!!! or a insurance claim..... so let me know if you have questions.
P.S. I'm kind of a bike/car guy. I have built and rebuildedded many of different types of bikes, cars, truck and forklifts. I only bring this up because I would like to be of help to the community

This will probably get me in trouble, but here goes...

I am really excited about this project! I really enjoy bringing bikes back, from their past and look forward to this project.

But I could do without all the racist shit.

This is an FJR Forum, not Truth Social...

I await the slings and arrows...

I wasn't going for racially charged overtones. It was just a satirical retrospect of the times we find ourselves in. No arrows just whiskey and goodtimes, If I wanted to enjoy the wonderful world of virtual jousting I would have joined Twitter lol ...

Biking Viking - "Honestly took maybe 5 min to type out what I was thinking at the time. I'm not in this world to impress anyone. You don't like me and or my sense of humor it's all good. I live life with the how ya doing keep it moving state of mind. No negative energy required."

While I appreciate humor in all forms, I've got a warped sense myself. While you weren't "going for racially charged overtones" it came off that way and some may and/or will be offended. Just be careful of crossing the line.

We're good.
