Guest eatpasta Posted January 5, 2015 Share Posted January 5, 2015 Some of you might know me from the ADV site. I heard about the FJ over there and like the idea of this bike more and more every passing moment. I have four bikes at the moment and I go back and forth between a Triumph Speed Triple and an FJR (which replaced my 1150GS when the chain rail failed at 90k). I got a screaming deal on the FJR and only bought it because I commute back and forth 100 miles in and out of Los Angeles. I've never really grown fond of it but it's a fantastic bike - fast and reliable but it handles weird, it's heavy and big. It's also incredibly cumbersome in the city with the short, taut suspension. i have been on the lookout for something like the FJ and the Tiger has been on my radar for some time as well.....I guess I just wanted Yamaha reliability in a triple package! ....so there may be a nice 09 FJR up for sale here sooner or later..... cmon tax return....
