I like the exhausts used on both of those builds.
Yep, I just answered your question in the other thread. The exhaust on both of those bikes is from Storz.

Saw this on J&P's site. Kinda spendy but looking at parts for things you don't own always is.

Looking at this is totally a "cart before the horse" exercise.

Oh, I do that ALL the time. The real trouble begins when you start buying parts for things you don't own. And yep, I've been know to do that too. But, it's ok... The dreaming and planning serves as motivation for future projects and I'd much rather have my direction planned ahead of time than have a project bike and not know what I want to do with it.

waiting Honda....Triumph has the Explorer, BMW has the new 1200GS, Yamaha the Super Ténéré, what gives? This will do very well in the US adventure touring market. I'd buy one sight unseen if they made the announcement that it's coming to the US.

Really have the itch for a new 2013 FJR... Really.

Pretty sure I could replace my Ultra Limited with one and never look back, not to mention I'd have a lot less money tied up in my bikes. Love my cruise control which it has and like the idea of only needing 87 octane.

Now I'll go back and drool over more roadtests and the 2013 FJR thread then kick the idea around for another week. I've got a line on one for a couple grand under list so all I'd need is an OTD total and then show up with a check

nah, I moved out to the country, on a golf course. The KE would be perfect for a little drunk & disorderly conduct.

I still want one of these:



1962 Mitsubishi Silver Pigeon. Tiny little thing, but would be hysterically funny to go romping around the city.
