How many from MI?

Recommended Posts

I'm Guessing Kansas Michigan is a new state; I'm also sure Cruizin will separate them after this post. :o
I thought I would check in and see how many other Michiganders are planning on getting this bike. Just another 20 degree night, dreaming of Spring.  Enjoying watching this site grow, and learning about my soon to be new bike.

I've got the FJ-09's big brother, the FJR. But sitting over in Muskegon, always looking for people to ride with.
 
Currently helping a buddy of mine get the FJR-09. He's over on the east side.

Anything above 40 degrees I'm riding the FZ, just put on some long johns and a few pair of socks combined with a leather jacket, and I'm good to go. It should hold up, next week we will be peaking into the 60s so get out and ride!
 
Have you taken your FJ into the UP yet?

I'm from Petoskey area. Putting some goodies on my fj right now. I will be riding soon. I like to wait till after the first rain. Wash the salt off of the roads.

Not yet, but will this year, I'm hoping Sargent finishes up their seat, otherwise I will put the Corbin on it.  I get sick of stopping every hour, my ass can't deal with the stock seat.  Week long trip planned in July!

That Sargent seat looks quite nice, wonder what the price tag will run. I did the 7.5 hour ride straight thru last Monday from Kentucky and my legs were shot. Week long? Sounds great! Where to?

I'm guessing the seat will be in the range of the FZ seat they currently have...?
 
As far as the ride, no real plan, head north, cross the mighty Mac, and let the bike decide from there!  My a$$ hurts just thinking about 7.5 hours straight.

Perhaps if they sell the rider seat alone... however I would expect to be a fair amount more for the two piece seat.

I agree, but with the Corbin heated close to $600, I would guess it can't be much more.  Hopefully we will know sooner than later.

I bought a red 2015 FJ-09 from Fox in GR a week ago. I think I am going to love this bike, Bart (Haslett/East Lansing).
