    Dunno about the C14 gang, but I've been out riding instead of posting...

    Went out today in the low-30's weather for a couple of hours and snapped these pics:

    It's a "Tank Bra" from Mag-Knight. It works great plus it just peels off for occasional cleaning underneath. Mine is the "carbon fiber" design.

    This bike has always been high on my cleaned-out-the stable-now-what list.

    ... now about that licence plate.

    Fortunately, you live in another state, I hope you can snag it in MN.

    It's a great bike, and delivers one hell of a far reaching bimble. :thumb

    Have my 03, I watched for this bike since 2000 when I heard they were going to make it. Lot's of talk on the FJR list about upgrading to a newer model, I don't see the point, still get the same thrill since the first time I rode it!

    Yep, bought it "used" with 2200 miles on it. Already had the Bill Mayer seat, MCL triple clamp/riser, highway pegs mounted to the sliders and a premier rear rack.

    The seat is very comfy but I would prefer leather. Might sell it off and have a new one built. I'm a bit bigger than the guy it was made for.

    Went to New Foundland from Utah last year.
    Here is the 06 loaded for travel.
    I'm on Signal Hill. A landmark in New Foundland.
    It's my second FJR. The 03 was a little warm.:D

    Wow!!:clap That sounds like quite an adventure. Tell us more! What route did you take, what time of year, how long did it take.

    I've been a lot of places in the word, but never Newfoundland. I also live in the west and just never thought of that as a destination.

    Got any more pics?

    Check the links in my sig line too... Newfoundland was awesome. I plan on going back. You didn't take the Feejer up the Trans-Lab did you? I know it would be doable but kind of a PITA.

    I had seen your amazing Alaska video before. Very well done.
    I would go back to Alaska before I do the far East ride again.
    Nova Scotia was my favorite. I have not deciced on my 09
    ride yet. Leaning towards Alaska again. We'll see.

    Shop around. Don't let the outragous quote from Progressive deter you.

    When I switched from an ST1300 to and FJR I was mortified at the first few quotes I received. Progressive was the highest at $1000.48 per yr, Geico was near the same, followed by my State Farm agent at $717.

    I found another company who quoted $525. and then I got a tip on FJRowners dot com (insurance section) forum to check AAA-Carolinas.

    $230 per YEAR gets me a 100/300 policy on my FJR -and- Husky TE. :clap

    All insurance companies are not created equal.
