woozer Posted February 12, 2015 Share Posted February 12, 2015 Hello All - I bought my FJ09 this past Saturday, I live in Lakewood (surrounded by Long Beach) and belong to a club of mostly sportbike and adventure riders who are all quite envious of my new toy. Until a couple months ago, I had a Triumph Street Triple R that I thought I was quite happy with, but in a burst of temporary insanity, I sold it and put down a deposit on the forthcoming Indian Scout. When literally every one of my bike pals said something along the lines of "Nice bike, but are you sure....?" and then production slowed down due to qc issues and I gave up and now here I am. Casting about for an alternative bike that was not vaporware, it was either the FJ or a Honda Interceptor. I can't take the cranked over riding position anymore, which ruled in FJ's favor, and the incredible value-for-money sealed the deal. Going for a couple of long rides in the next week to get the break-in service done before my club's monthly ride. The other vehicle in my garage is a fully supermoto'd Suzuki DR650, as I think of it and the FJ "From the sublime to the ridiculous." Looking forward to meeting and riding with other FJ owners. Cheers, Lou Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
