Well, my Laam arrived today, I can't wait to try her out. Tomorrow would be perfect weather, but it's calling for rain on Saturday, may be a Sunday afternoon ride for sure:



If anyone is looking, I have a gently loved Corbin for a Gen1 FJR for sale. Let me know if you need pics.

What exactly does gentle love with a seat entail? And why are you taking pictures of the act?

Sorry for the mis-understanding....that picture is of the virgin Laam (laamseats.com).....gentle love means that as far as you know, I have never broken wind in my seat.......my Corbin is for sale and can be seen in this picture:

I get riding the trails, really I do. I think we are talking 2 different things here though. If riding off-road is what you are looking for, then a FJR is not the bike.

The FJR is for riding on the roads, all roads, that take you to a place that is much different from what you are used to. Not only to ride those roads, but to thoroughly enjoy them. To get on that on-ramp at break neck speed, and blend into traffic effortlessly. To travel at 85, or 90mph, and get to where you want comfortably, in the least amount of time. To get to those mountain twisties, with the anticipation of a boy on Christmas morning knowing he is getting a mini-bike. To lean that big bike down through a turn, wondering if you have gone too far, but to come out of it unscathed, and feeling like you are Jorge Lorenzo on his final lap holding off Marquez. That lean, oh that lean, that thing that we all want to push a little further each time we ride her, and she holds on for us when we think gravity will have her will....but doesn't.

The FJR is a street bike, pure and simple, that some how gives us more than what she is designed for. I, for one, love her with all that I have, and would never, repeat, never leave her for another bitch!

There....I said it.

What if the other bitch was a redhead... a 2014 FJR1300 redhead?!

I just asked my wife if I could get a redhead for Christmas!

For some unknown reason, she now wants me to sleep in the spare bedroom and won't even look at me!

clocklaw - Is this a "Corbin close" or a standard? My '05 had a "close" on it & I hated it.......went back to OEM.

dan - The redhead is gonna SERIOUSLY disrupt my 5-year-get-out-of-debt plan........my gawd, the '14 is a sexy machine!!

Please give us an update on how you like the seat. How was their turn time, customer service, etc.? Also how grippy is the vinyl? I had a Mayer seat on my old V-Strom. It was comfy but every time I touched the brakes, I felt like I was sliding forward.

Hope I get a chance to ride sometime this week, the weather is supposed to be great. The customer service was great, Seth and I spent a good 20 minutes on the phone discussing my riding style and what I was looking for from the seat.....then we spent another 30 to 45 minutes talking motorcycles. My turn around time was a little delayed as FedEx delivered my seat to his door the afternoon before Thanksgiving and then it sat on a UPS truck somewhere in the mid-west during the ice storms / etc. but actual turn around time on Seth's part...he had it in the mail back to me in less than 2 days from laying his hand on it for the first time. Keep in mind that he doesn't check e-mail much, if you need something, call him. I'll say more once I have a chance to put a few miles on it, but I will add that Seth talked me out of the herringbone texture material because it will be too slick. I went with the carbon fiber look and it looks great!

My 2004 FJR

Hello,

Been lurking on this site for some time now.
Thought I would introduce myself....
Have had my 04 for a bit over 3 years, put 50k on it since!
She is no garage queen!
I live in CenCal in a very good spot to hit some amazing roads.
And, pretty much a year round riding season.
He is me this past Sept on a trip from Death Valley to the Lost Coast CA.
This is in a place called Ruth off of the highly rated (and rightfully so) CA HYW 36. If you ever get a chance, HWY 36 from Red Bluff west to the coast (Fortuna) is one of the top MC roads in the US. 140 miles of Nirvana.
Love this site.

Thanks for the tip; I haven't ridden highway 36 yet, but highway 299 which parallels it through the Trinity National Forest in October (Arcata to Redding) was pretty darn nice.
