Torque thing is interesting. The articles said the FJR was a "Frieght Train" with gobs of torque.
I never thought it did much until over 5,000 rpm. My Tenere has always felt to have better mid
range power, even stock. It has had the reflash, opened the TB screws and now the clutch mod.

Fantastic pulling bike now. I think the bike has always been a bit if a sleeper in that it performs
better than seat of the pants test lets you feel.

I also had one of the smooth ones from out of the crate. I can't feel a thing in pegs or seat.
Bars some at hard acceleration and the mirrors are seldom crystal clear. For the size
twin it is I thought it's more than acceptable. Sorry, not trying to get all teary eyed.
