Took the FJR for a spin the other day.... hard not to when it was almost 90 degrees out.

The more I ride the FJR, the more I like it. Maybe I'm getting old...

Same here. Weather reprieve so I got out and put in a healthy 700 miles today!

Best,

"Mature" - is not an age, it's a state of mind.

I rode my Gen II twice in the first year I owned my first FJR, so I traded the FZ for a second FJR, as I plan on keeping them for a very long time...

Changed the crank case oil on my 300xc and swapped out a metering rod on this lectron. These things are really nifty.

Not mine but the one I take care of that’s stored in my garage. Fixed some cracked plastic, redid the seat, gave her a good polishing and new go fast stickers. Damn good condition for a 2003 250sx
