I agree that sidecar looks really good. Not to mention its always important to haul around the little monkeys

I ride an FJR1300 and I approve of this thread.

I....almost....bought one in 05 but did the cruiser thing instead. Big mistake. I could have had a screaming deal on that Connie. A very under-appreciated mile muncher.

Any Connie owners here have any experience with the Bridgestone BT-45's?

Brian, I really like where you have your auxiliary lighting mounted. Mine is located on the highway bars adn I've always felt that they are a little low for my liking. Your set-up takes care of that issue.

LOL, That's dust from the garage concrete floor. I'll match my chicken strips with anyone! If you can zoom in, check the footpeg feelers.. 10mm of steel stud GROUND AWAY on both sides!

Those are speakers I put in, car stereo in the left pocket area. The bar mounts are Storz, circa 1986. The bars are Gold Wing bend by Flanders. Ceebaileys screen.

Can you see the badass radar detector mount on the dash? Custom CNC fabbed from .080" aluminum. I have 2 left, just add paint (or not).

Do the fairing extenders work good or just so-so , seams that Yamaha looked at them & did a little copying on the 06 & newer FJR`s (fairing adjust out & in by knees) If i owned my old 86 , i`d take you up on the dash piece. I might one day buy another C10 to have as a commuter (really liked the 01 blue one but held off till 05 and bought the clean goldie , but sold it ) & keep the 07 FJR for long distance trips.

My Connie

It is a great bike it got me back into motorcycling. I bought it new in 2006 and it now has 69,000 miles. It has gotten me an Iron Butt award, great friends and many new adventures.





Come see what fun we have.

The fairing extenders work really well, IMO. They need to come off if it will be 70* or more, though. Your legs will cook with them on.

Yes, the fairing extenders rock, I got them right away and they went on every fall and off every spring for 20 years. MUCH warmer in the cold. Let me know about the radar bracket if you need one.
