Hi from Australia


Recommended Posts

Hi from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
 
I was looking at the BMW F800GT, then the new Triumph Tigers, then saw the MT-09 Tracer (FJ-09 for some).
Pretty much exactly what I'm looking for.
 
Been riding several decades, like touring (Tasmania is the best), spent a lot of time on the Victorian Spurs.
Was in the DoD back in the early 90s, am inspired by films like "Long way round",
and am quite fond of cafe racer hipster bikes like the XS650.
 
I think the Tracer needs farkling with:
 
Hugger extension 
Fender extension
Hand guard lights
Driving lights
Seat cover
Seat concepts mod
Seat angle change
Radiator guard
Engine protectors
Dashcams - 90 degree front & 120 degree rear - Innovv C3
Heated grips
Rubber footpegs
Mirror extenders
Wheel reflective stickers - Green on starboard, red on port ?
Windscreen mod/replacement - Wunderlich wind deflector
Suspension tweak/upgrade
Tank leg grips
Horn upgrade
Belly pan
Mobile phone/tablet mount
Screen protectors to stop glare
Adjustable clutch lever
Headlight lens protection film
Cruise control/throttle lock
Grip puppies
Left swingarm protection from boot rub
Sump plug mod
Remapped ECU
Bar risers
Carbon fibre wrap pannier brackets
Highway pegs ?
Chain adjuster
Helmet lock
..
2nd accessory socket
USB 5V power supply
reflective stickers
LED rear light
cut away foam pad under tank
cut away divider in under seat area
Front of seat usb power lead for camera
90 degree valve stem adapters
Check rear brake line for crimping
 
Cheers.

so have you had the chance to pick one up yet??      I have also been interested in many of those other bikes and I have to admit that after watching LWR that I was inspired to buy an 1150GS and I spent about 90K of the happiest miles of my life on that bike and desperately miss it.  But they keep going UP in value!!  A decent used 1150 costs essentially what a brand new FJ does and it's 200 lbs lighter with roughly the same power.....

Took a demo ride today. WooHoo ! Way easier to ride in some ways than my R6.
 
Yes, the screen does create very noisy turbulence. A replacement or adjustment is necessary.
 
Now to wait for my wife to "talk me into it". ;)
 
 

good luck!  that's always a tough part of the deal.  I have always been lucky in that my wife has never said no because I'm never done anything really stupid (yet).....
