Picked up a 2008 FJR1300 ABS with 10k miles.
Raven Black and not a scratch on it.
Great power with monster torque.

I'll take some pictures tomorrow.

Thats alright Greg, nothing a pair of knobbies, some hard off road riding and a few wicked rock roads won't take care of.

I've still got the V Strom for that, this things too damn nice to scratch up.







It sure does run Gene, long days will be easy on this thing, that is if I don't get a ticket.

Well, it was, now my Superduke is sitting in its place.
I couldn't justify spending lots of extra for a new one when there are hardly any different.

Track bike..............no, oh, it's got plenty of power and handles pretty well but it's no SV650 that's for sure!

Back in the saddle, again

Put my money down on an '08 DL650 today. It'll be my third. After most of two riding seasons on 4 wheels, it's good to be back.





Maybe I'll look for some orange rattlecan and make it a yeager tribute bike.

That was no rattlecan. Guy spent money on making that thing look like that.

I'm actually strongly considering a little something from the flea market myself. The economy must be turning.

Good Move! From personal experience, I find the DL's to be real chic magnets.

Can't go wrong with a 650 Strom.

I am keeping mine, it's the jack of all trades, master of none.
very reasonable maintenance and will take a beating, kind of like the Honda Civic of motorcycles.

Just kidding. I have yet to ride a weestrom. Test rode a v-strom and liked it though.
