    That's what I figured.
    May be worth while on an interstate crusing Goldwing but can't see it on the FJR.

    Inmates,

    The luggage on a 2008 fits a full face helmet right?

    Each side case will hold an XL full face helmet and some XXL helmets if they are not too tall.

    Mine fits a XXL Nolan N-102 but, it's tight. I face the chin bar forward at an angle poitin into the lid. Won't go in there any other way.

    I don't run my bags all the time but if I remember correctly my Arai XL wouldn't fit.

    I usually use a cable lock if need be or take it with me.

    Heck, you can come over and test your helmet fit in mine... :evil

    If it doesn't fit buy it anyway and add a top case, I run a GIVI 55L.

    I'm waiting for the leaves along the Blue Ridge Parkway to get some color for my last long multi day ride of the year. I can't think of a better bike for long distances on curvy roads. I want a sport bike in the next couple years if I ever get the funds together and I know I'll miss the FJR comfort and all around power. No bike is perfect but, the FJR is close to ST heaven.

    Yes, each side-bag will fit a full-face helmet. The Givi E52 on mine will also fit 2 helmets, but not much else.

    Yep, I have a JC Whitney knock off and it will hold two helmets. Two helmets in the top box, one in each pannier for a total of four helmets. The FJR is pretty popular when the group pulls into a place to eat.:D

    1400cc FJR? There was a rumor as far back as 2008, but not much since.

    Thanks!
    I'm about 6'1"
    I replaced the stock windshield with the Yamaha touring windshield.
    It's about 4 inches higher and 2 inches wider than stock.
    It works pretty well for me.:clap

    Has anyone put a higher amp fuse into the aux slot and run heated gear thru it? Manual says not to do that but I wonder if it would harm anything.
