I was going to make a case for the Concours which is similar to the FJR. Then I almost dropped mine the other day and realized how I would've definitely either dropped it or hurt myself bad if I had a bad knee. If comfort's important for you, I'd go for it.

Well just got back from seeing the FJR. Beautiful. Needs some work on the throttle setup as it did not return under its own power. We looked under the seat for a way to raise it to the higher position and fund shells and nesting material under the rear seat and a major nest under the driver seat. Did not see any chewed wiring but it would take some more investigating I am guessing. Anyone with rat experience in the FJR? Is there somewhere else I should look? Maybe the airbox?

Definitely check the air filter.
