Ok, the color is a little deceiving...so it is silver then...the new, slower silver

Also....you ride out of Columbia???

slower silver? the sales dude told me silver was the fastest color! I'm sure he wouldn't just tell me that...

The 2003 Silver was the fastest.....the new silver is the fastest of the slower bikes

I live / work / ride out of Columbia too....only been here 40 years myself (not counting the 2 years I was in Cookeville for College). There are a few of us fellow FJR riders in the area...

Well, I put a trunk on mine. That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it!

FYI - They are paving that road. I would hate it if a brand new motorcycle, like, maybe, an FJR, found themselves covered in fresh tar. I would ESPECIALLY hate it if the OWNER of said FJR became upset with me. (sorry Mr.B)

Sorry about the new pavement, guys. The more I think about it, I'm thinking we could void this one and post a new one.

Thoughts?
