Potential new Fj-09 owner


Recommended Posts

Hi there. I’ve been lurking this forum for a while, and decided that it’s time to join in.
Age: 49 yrs
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 90 kg
Place: Oslo, Norway
Experience: Been riding 5 years.
Past Ride: 2008 Yamaha FZ6
Current Ride: 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 650
Also experienced (but not owned): BMW R1200RT, Yamaha TDM 900, and Triumph Legend 900.
I’m looking to replace my V-Strom 650. I am very satisfied with the Strom, but now I want a bike with quicker handling and a little more power, and the Fj-09 looks very interesting.
It will be used for city Commuting, short stints, daytrips, weekend trips and 1 long trip a year. Occasional two up, but I ride solo most of the time.
I’m going to check if it’s possible to get me a test ride this weekend. Excited!
Question: Is there anyone on here that has gone from V-Strom 650 to FJ-09? How would you describe the transition?
