    Is that on the Rear by any chance?

    I think it's 023F F and 023F R. My owner's manual is on my desk though, I'd have to put down the wine and disturb my dog, the puppy, and at least one cat.

    Besides, why interrupt a good posting by applying facts?

    I picked mine up on January 26th (my 64th Birthday was the 31st - I do give myself the best birthday presents!) Unfortunately too much snow at the house to do much on it. Only have 167 miles on it. Darn flatlanders in Denver have no snow and if I could just get it about a mile from home I'd be good. I've ridden the KLX 250 out and the DR650 home in a snow storm, but that's quite a different story than trying to get the FJR through it!

    Anyway, thought when I bought it that wouldn't be farkling it since it really had pretty much everything. :lol3 Except a top trunk (which I prefer to the side bags for day to day since I have to move a car to get it out of the garage with the side bags on). Oh, GPS mount. Wire up for heated gear and battery tender. Heated seat! Gotta have one of those. Hmmm, Calsci windscreen seems nice. Maybe some shorty CRG levers? Frame sliders!

    OK, speaking of frame sliders, anyone know someone who makes them for the 2013? Ones that don't require modding the fairing?

    Fairing is different; what worked gracefully on Gen II bikes mostly doesn't on Gen III w/o drilling holes (like on teh Gen I)

    How do the handlebars adjust?

    I looked at one this week. I like them a lot. It's not as roomy as my Super Tenere which is keeping me from trading. Although, the seat was in the low position.

    He lives on his 07 FJR and has done 42,000 miles. I don't call that living on a bike! :rofl

    But great video. Thanks for posting.

    That's true. I wasn't considering the size of the UK.
