Where are you picking it up?

2006 FJR



Man that thing is smooth and FAST!! Oh yea, and just a "little" heavier than the Wee!!

GS is on my list, just couldn't justify the cost now and it's too close to the Wee. The FJR will be a great winter bike!!

It's too hot right now to even go out in the garage and admire it!!!!

Haha, ya I like it, now I gotta get a plate for it. Think the VA Beach cops would cut me a break if I put my old Wee plate on there and rode it I might be ok if i only rode say after 10pm right??

I got insurance today, when I called for a quote on an '08 it was $510/yr, the '06 is $326. I was so happy I went out and bought a new riding jacket!!

I think I'll change the oil tomorrow and tidy up the wiring, I don't like how that fuse box is installed.

Nice looking bike Roger, I wish I could sell my cruiser and get a sport-touring type moto. Def. like the Yamahas, can't afford a Beemer.

Just look out for the sneaky bastard that sits on Brockie in the dark area and zaps Lynnhaven....
As for the insurance, that's sweet, be glad your are in VA...NC will rape ya. I never had a chance to start pulling panels off and see what was under there.

Wiring Mess

Well, I pulled all the non-stock wiring out of the FJR today. Man the guy who had it before you Murph really had no clue what he was doing. I re-wired the Datel and connected the Zumo harness. I pulled out all the driving light wiring for now (there was no less than 10 "Vampire taps").

Way too hot today to do anymore work. When I do the AudioVox I'll pull the fairing and re-do the lights and add a fuse box. I'll also put in the heated grips and Gerbing connection.

Weird how the battery is up under the right fairing panels. Not the easiest thing to get access to under there!!

just added my datel and heated grips last week, adding the cruise wasn't bad I did find the cheap check valve I bought local was crap.
