I'm based out of Palm Beach Gardens for the next couple months. No bike at present but I hope to have one in-house before I head up to Asheville - my new permanent digs. However. if I am able to score an FJ between now and then I would certainly love to burn some rubber with some local boys.
 
And once I get settled in Asheville and setup for guests, I will be throwing out the welcome mat for any who'd like a place to bunk prior to hitting the really good stuff to be found near the Hunts (Motorcycle) Lodge in Tellico Plains, TN. Look it up, Jack and Lori are swell folks and very experienced, long time riders...

Hey guys,
 
I've been a lurker here for a bit doing some reading. I'm on the fence as to whether or not I want to go for the FJ-09.
 
I have about 25+ years of riding experience to include being a former trackday control rider, and mountain twisty visitor at least 4-5 trips a year. I am slowing down a bit as I approach 45 y/o this year, but I still love a sporty ride. I'm looking for something more sport/touring oriented with the upright riding position.
 
I've owned the Italian steed that seems to have started this category (2011 Ducati Multistrada S), and my current ride is a 2012 Aprilia Tuono V4R (with forged Aprilia wheels and full Ohlins front/rear and damper).
 
I'll be blunt... I cannot find a place that will allow test rides, so I was wondering if anyone on this South Fla thread would care to accommodate?
 
If nothing more, maybe a meet up so I can pick your brain on the bike.
 
I currently have the Tuono up for sale/trade (looking for another Multi 1200).
 
Ride safe out there (South Fla is crazy!)...

i have decided to sell my FJ09. under 800 miles already performed Oil change. it is due now for first service.
 
when i purchased the bike, i pre purchased extended warranty, prepaid service at Riva motorsport, or other yamaha dealer, and Find It Now GPS locator, and everything else Dealer offered. the bike has great coverage that is transferable. i will review with anyone that would like to take a look.
