New FJR 1300 in my stable

Post by jjscsix » Thu Jan 03, 2019 9:21 pm

I don't know the best place to post this, but I just traded my 1600 BMW for a new leftover 2017 FJR1300. I had one about ten years ago and loved it. I'm happy to be back on one, especially with all the upgrades they have made. It's my retirement present to myself.

I had two 1600 GTs and obviously liked them, but I was looking for a smaller bike that handled better. The 1600 handled well for a 760 lb bike, bit it still felt big and did not inspire as much confidence as the FJR.

I still do have the SD GT and 1199 Panigale.

BTW, I tried, but have never been successful loading a picture. I got one to load under "attachments" but it is not showing up in my post. Any advice appreciated.

I wish it would have told me that. I have no trouble uploading pics on other sites. Thanks.
