I've just picked up an 03 FJR and let me just say that it is the most awesome ride! Having read this site for a while (pre-purchase), as well as the ST 1300 site, I knew I had to make an informed decision. Had the 05 ST for a road test and it was impressive, although much more Touring than Sport. An hour later I'm on the FJR... from start up (what a beautifull noise), thru town and onto the twisties, this bike rocks! There was absolutley no question were the $ were going. This bike is, with out a doubt, at the top of the SPORT- touring food chain. I look forward to checking in with you for bits and pieces and seeing you on the road. Any groups in the San Diego area?
