Completed a 8day 5100km trip on mostly 2lane roads , to include south shore of St Lawrence River from Montreal , around Gaspe peninsula, Cabot Trail in Cape Briton, and Peggy’s Cove in Nova Scotia.

All two up with missus , for our 39th anniversary .
FJR performed beautifully, and turned 130000km(80K miles)just leaving the house at the beginning of our trip.

Took off the 14" Delkevics and put on the stock cans for commuting next few days.
Not that the Delkevics are that loud or annoying to me, but the silence of stock is sort of addicting actually... LOL

Just gave her the once over in preparation for a day ride through northern NC, into VA, and back home. Should be a 350-425 mile day.
Jealous.

Washed the bike on Saturday. Sunday met up with a buddy early and did a 250 mile ride home by noon. 76 to Julian, Down Banner Grade, out to Yaqui Pass, Borrego Springs, Montezuma Grade, Palomar and home. Little bit of fog early but the desert was perfect and only high 70's.

Will be rolling the ODO over 38,000 kms on the way to my buddies after dinner. He's going to take good care of her for me. I told my buddy part of the sale was that I can ride it ANYTIME I want.. LOL

That really makes the FJR look small

@Oldjeep that's EXACTLY what I thought when I took the picture and was looking at them side by side... I have another picture from an angle which makes them seem similar in size. The funny part is they took away a bunch of bulk and weight (90 lbs) with the new design of the wing in 2018.. and it STILL looks large in that picture!

I saw a picture online of a 2018+ Wing next to a HD Ultraglide or something HD and the Wing looked like a baby (much like the FJR does in this picture) compared to the HD

Would have loved to have seen a picture of my GL, next to the FJR next to my buddies FZ6R which he is coming off of... real progression of 'size' would have been on display.
