Hello everyone...

Recommended Posts

I am soon to be a 2020 Tracer GT owner as soon as my dealer gets another in stock.

I have been riding my FJR1300A since 2014 and it's time for a change.

Welcome.  There seems to be a large influx of previous FJR owners in recent weeks.

I just bought a new 2020 GT myself. Sold a 2016 FJR 1300 ES for it. No regrets at all. I love it and don't miss the pork.

Yep! Already bought a set of 2015 FJR bags, Road 5's, MRA touring screen, FJR pegs, beak,  Yamaha 50L topcase and rack and had the bike/topcase painted to match the Liquid Graphite bags. Waiting on a build date of September 25th for a Russell Sport Seat. Had one on the FJR and loved it. Broke but happy!

Be careful Kemosabe.  Typically requires several years of stock setup before the beak is applied.  Plus half the forum will whine.

Just kidding, congrats.   Sounds like a nice setup!

Wow, that’s going all in on a brand new bike.  :) 

Pictures by any chance?  I would love to see how that looks...

I dropped nearly 100 lbs. coming from a Super Tenere. Don't miss that extra weight at all. I'm at the age where I really appreciate a lighter bike, especially in the garage!
