OH Nuts!!

Recommended Posts

I don't have an FJ-09 (considering one). I'm in Chillicothe, ride a 93 ST1100, love to lean the twisties in the south east corner of the state.

I have been impressed so far. This is my first bike so do not have anything to compare it to. My Dad has rode it and he enjoyed it. He has the FJR and a couple of Harley's.

I'm in NE Ohio and considering purchase of an FJ-09. I currently own an F700GS, but love triples....having previously owned a Speed Triple.

I'm in central Ohio. Hilliard specifically. I've passed another red FJ commuting into Hilliard 3 times now in the last 2 months. Are you on the forum? Would love to compare mods and impressions.

Hello from Columbus! I'm in the Clintonville area. Just bought a red FJ yesterday. Patently waiting for warmer weather...
I would love to meet up with some fellow FJ owners in the area.

Greetings gregzbutt. Congrats on your purchase. The FJ is a fantastic bike! Probably my favorite ride in the last fifteen years and five motorcycles owned during that time. Let's plan a ride in the spring, whenever the weather finally warms up. I DIDN'T go with the heated grip option. LOL

That sounds real good. I'll keep an eye out here for a meet up. I did get the heated grips. Seems my hands and feet are what bugs me the most when the temps start dropping. I'm hoping to get some break-in miles this weekend. Saturday and Sunday are looking good!

I belong to a group of very experienced riders and they're having a ride-in at Marietta, OH in June. Here is a link to their Calendar:

This is most certainly not a group of just Sabre and Magna riders. We now have 5 FJ riders, several ST1100 and ST1300s, several Beemers, etc. The group does stress ATGATT and one of the member placed 3rd in an Iron Butt Rallye several years ago. Like I said, *very* experienced riders.
 
I plan to be at the Marietta thing, it would be nice to meet some of you guys there...

That does look like a lot of fun. I know there's some great roads in the area.
Unfortunately I'm already scheduled for a Suzuki GS rally in Indiana that weekend. The other love of my life is my 1980 Suzuki GS850G. A great group of folks in the GS community as well.

I don't know who - but I passed another 2015 Red FJ-09 on 104 heading north out of Chillicothe on Wednesday. We need to get all of the FJ owners together for a ride.

Greetings! Another new member here. Purchased a '15 a couple of weeks ago. Not red but the matte finish. The bike is currently at Ride 1 for a shifter shaft recall. Just listed my 2012 Vstrom 1000 on Craigslist. Shedding 60 pounds and gaining hp should be a hoot. I live in Saddlebrook (between Davidson and Hayden Run. Curt
