OK, I'll chip in. I picked up an '08 in May and now have 9300 miles on it. Great bike, i rode from the midwest to the west coast. Lots of 400-600 mile days plus an 850 and a 980 miler. The fjr never blinked. The only farkles so far are a Throttlemeister and a Cee-Bailey+2+2. I may add a set of slipons and a top box in the spring.
