I've always had a thing for the FJR as a long distance mile muncher and daily rider... now that they've added factory cruise control, I'm very interested....

Has anyone here pulled the trigger on a '13 FJR? I'd like to hear how it is to ride it as a commuter bike.. any heat issues?


Also, I've read that in Europe there's an electronically adjustable suspension model coming in April '13. I'm not sure I'd be interested in that but will wait to see what it's about and if it's got upside down forks..

Yep, bought mine on the 6th of this month. Have only racked up a whopping 154 miles, she's put away for the winter and farkling. What little I've ridden her, she is all I was looking for and the cruise control is a must for me anymore. No regrets here.
