  1. Spent my teenage years in Ft Lauderdale at Riverside Military Academy. We were there 3 months over the winter. Almost bought a place from a friend in Coca Beach. Went down and checked it out. The only reason I could see having a bike in Florida is to bar hop. More power to ya my friend. I live in Louisiana just south of the Arkansas border. I have no problem doing 400-450 miles a day for 2 days and can ride twisties for most of the hours I'm riding those 2 days. Maybe 3 hours of that weekend I'm not in the twisties. From Coca Beach I can't make it to Georgia fast enough. Plus i learned you can't open chips outside in Florida. They are soggy in 10 minutes, 🙁
  2. Yes indeed! 318 miles, 11 curves, HA!
  3. Ah ha ha ha ha! this is why in Louisiana i stop at truck stops and drink coffee for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Half hour before sunset and 1 hour to an hour and a half after sunset to let the bugs clear. You can drink coffee for 1 1/2 hours or scrub off bugs for the same time, your choice. Mine is coffee! 🤣 Also I use Turtle Wax ICE on my bike and helmet all over. Even my face shield. Bugs come right back off. Water beads off like rain x also.
  4. I know there was a high mileage thread somewhere on here.......Guys had more than 100,000 miles on the FJ, 2015's too. Seems there are plenty out there without any problems. I wouldn't be jaded on it. Look at the condition of the bike and decide on what the bike is worth to you and make an offer. Like I said. There are a good number out there with over 100,000 miles.
  5. 2WDW will reflash for free for life. When you had it flashed you told them the exhaust you were using correct? If you think something got corrupted you can send it back also. I've used the 2WDW flash for the last year, 8,000 miles and the only thing my bike has done is 1 time it died as I turned onto my street. 1 time that's it. Besides that I got better gas mileage and can go over 115 MPH.
  6. I'm sure what he is saying is the actual light shape the head light throws on the road is backwards to here in the states. As in driving on different sides. You can move our shape right to left and up and down but the shape of the light refraction from the lens inside the head lamp is different. Hard to explain but hopefully I got it across.
  7. You got lucky Skip. I've tried a couple of times. Once with mine and once with a friends BMW. Neither time did it work. The BMW was going down a hill. Both with 2 people pushing. So what happened Lance? Did battery hold a charge?
  8. I'm looking at the bike tied down, I have a 2015 and I just use the lower triple camp. Then I look in the bottom left of the picture and see the Roadmaster Woodie Wagon.....and wonder if it has the rear facing seat looking out the back window. Then I think naw, you don't need to write any retort about it, no one else will probably notice it. Then low and behold, what do I see? Couple of regulars commenting on the Roadmaster, Ha! Small world, small world. Ah, the memories.
  9. Well right on, right on, right on! Now enjoy that puppy. And 48 hundred, WOW! Well worth the price of admission! 🤑
  10. Mine had these on it when I got it a little over a year ago. Hepco & Becker Oval Street Soft Bag Set Upgrade your bike with Hepco & Becker Oval Street Soft Bag Set... And these are the side mounts. They are very sturdy. Hepco & Becker C-Bow Carrier Yamaha FJ-09 Upgrade your bike with Hepco & Becker C-Bow Carrier Yamaha... I now have the hard bags from them. Hepco & Becker Orbit Side Cases C-Bow Carrier Upgrade your bike with Hepco & Becker Orbit Side Cases C-Bow... I sold my soft bags so I don't have them anymore. They were very sturdy, easy to keep clean material. Dry bags for waterproofing. Here's some pix on the bike.
  11. Lance, I've found when you kill a battery the way you did, ie. leaving the key on, it kills the battery......DEAD. If you did it cranking till the click click click I'd say it might charge back up. Leaving the key on kills it and then keeps draining it because the key is still on. Usually doesn't come back or not to full strength. And yes I found out you can't push start a fuel injected bike with a low battery. Don't ask how. Good luck and a fresh battery isn't much and cheap peace of mind is nice.
  12. These guys have good deals on batteries. Been buying from them for over a decade. Scooters, ZX11 Ninja, ZRX1100, VMax, Jet ski. Keep them on a battery tender when not riding them. They are on eBay; YTZ10S-BS High Performance - Maintenance Free - Sealed AGM Motorcycle Battery Find many great new & used options and get the best deals for... No I have no interest in this business. I've just used them for more than a decade. Quality product at a good price and free ship. At 38.00 for a new battery and be at your house in 2 - 3 days. Remember, lay it on it's side when putting it in the bike. I thought it went in standing up. + and - were backwards. I thought they sent me the wrong battery. Wrote about it on here and a member set me straight. Just didn't seem right for it to be laying on it's side but it's the way it's made. It's a sealed battery so no spills. Just remember that when changing them out. Like I said, 38 bucks and no worries mate! Also get a battery tender. Almost forgot. I get 5 years out of their batteries. Don't know if they last longer, I just put a date on them with a sharpy when I get them and change them every 5 years whether they need it or not. For the price, who cares?
  13. Same here. They work well. Move the mirrors up and out over and past your arm/elbow. Plus these look like stock mirrors. Those at Twisted look like they just raise them up, not out any.
  14. One of the members has a pipe. Not sure on the loudness or anything but the price is right!
  15. Same here. I use the eBay cheapo. Double Bubble Windshield WindScreen For Yamaha FJ-09 MT 09 Tracer 2015-16 Black The windshield can protect motorcycle enthusiasts from the... Works great!
