FJR in hibernation
If you don't mind me asking: what type of seat is that? Saddlemen?
Poor thing. Just took my first ride of the new year today:
My bank account says "Ouch!"
Nice saddle, though.
oooh, but your buns will thank you
might as well look at Russell too
Here in the USA you can get a Pinlock visor insert, appears to be the same thing as the Ralieri. I have a Pinlock on my helmet and it's very effective at preventing fogging.
The handlebar adjustment procedure has never been in the USA owner's manuals, only the service manuals. The link to the FJR forum will provide the answer though and it's easy and quick to do.
I've been considering a Pinlock visor insert. But we're nearly halfway through January, which means winter is almost over here in Arkansas
That must make your house smell like gas and oil, no?
Mine? No, I don't notice any of those but I do have a poor sense of smell. The only thing I smell is the wood burning fireplace (the bike is well away from the fireplace ).
I live in Florida, and I always wear my pin-lock. Rain, heat & humidity add up to foggy visor.
Lol that's funny. My wife would flip if is ever tried to store a bike in the house. But hey the bike looks comfortable.
The FJR riders sure have been quiet lately....
The roads are covered in salt and Russell has my seat right now. Fjr hasn't moved in a couple of months.
The klr, however, is still getting ridden regularly.
All typos and misspellings blamed on my phone.
There's a good writeup on the 2013 FJR in this month's Motorcycle Consumer. They dyno tested the motor, it's producing ~8 more horsepower than the 2012, and the stopping distance is reduced. Their write up seems pretty fair to me.
All typos are always the phone's fault. That goes without saying.
So far I've been able to ride my FJR this winter just about every day, except for two days with snow on the ground and ice on the bridges.
I will have to check out that article. Thanks for the link.
Been riding regularly despite bitter cold. Lithium battery makes cold starts interesting - turn every thing on including all electric clothes/gloves and then wait five min. Goes against everything you grew up thinking about batteries.
Cold (I'm convinced) caused the center throttle return spring to unwind one turn. I'd already intentionally unwound it one years ago. Two turns are too many and so the throttle wouldn't close. Made for an interesting ride home! Took about five hours to get in far enough to rewind it.
I rode last weekend but I confess I'm not a cold weather fan at all.
And winter is ugly, besides.
Still looking to buy. There is one on my local Craigslist but its a wrong nbr!!!! Grrrr!
