To what the others have said: Get in an MSF safety course before you get near that bike. When you pick it up, make sure it’s in Touring mode. Yamha’s are famous for very abrupt on/off throttle response. And the FJR engine braking map is pretty severe.

And WATCH YOURSELF. If you’re used to Harleys, a velvet beast like an FJR will hurl you into three digits so effortlessly and with such little noise and commotion that, with no intent on your part, traffic and landscape are coming at you a lot faster than you’re prepared to deal with.

Good luck. Take your time. You’re gonna love it.
