Rt vs fjr

For those of you who have ridden or owned both, I just tested a 2013 FJR for about an hour today. Great bike but a bit heavy at slow speeds and the steering feels a bit heavy for what I am used to. I...

Rain...rain. I'm sick of it.

I would love to ride if this rain ever stops. It has been raining here in Newnan for three days. I'm going to head to savannah this Thursday if it ever clears up.
