Nice looking bike! I flew to LA years ago and rode back on an R1200RT - seemed like a good idea at the time.

I have the same bike and love it! 👍

Regarding the cruise control, it would be nice to be able to set it above 82mph, but honestly itís not that big a deal. Iíve gotten used to it and use cruise control mainly to give my right hand an occasional break. Keeping the hands on the bars most of the time is the way to go.

I have a 2014 I bought new in November of 2013. 45,000 trouble-free miles, the FJR is an outstanding motorcycle. You will love it! Get a 2013 or later to enjoy integrated electronic cruise control.

My thinking exactly, when I saw this creampuff I said "yes please"

Thanks for the kind words of encouragement; let's ride soon!

Nice bike! I recently acquired my first touring type bike, an ST1100 for a fantastic price from STGuy. Never saw myself on one, but after riding one, I see the appeal. Actually look forward to more rides and longer distances.

That FJR would be number one my list, Congrats!

That's probably a better feeling than to get home and notice...no passenger.
There's always an upside.
