No, just me extinguishing the thought of telling everyone on the K1600GT thread how awesome the new FJR is but I figured if they wanted to know about that bike, there was already a thread for it.

Yabut, the 1600 eats the FJR much like the new GS walks all over the Tenere. Duh.
I will only ride mine in the dark now for the humiliation of being seen on it.

I was thinking about a DL650 /1000 or a tiger but the tenere would have a bit more grunt and it seems like a hell of a bike .

19mm is about 3/4"
Go to any Home Depot or Lowe's and you can get a threaded rod coupler for $2:

Make sure that you measure the OD. The one I got at Lowes as well as the one I got at Ace Hardware was too small. I understand that The ones that Home Depot sell are the correct 19mm size.
