Wonder'in if anybody else caught that
i've been trying to decide where to go next year, and yours and pluric's trips to the east are definitely swaying me to go that way, rather than to the west again..
Do it! Just make sure you make a good part of the trip Newfoundland. Nova Scotia was great too but the RV traffic can be horrible. NFL was free and open and not so touristy. Check out Gross Morne and Lans Aux Meodows (The Viking Site)
Dammit, you guys aren't helping... a friend of mine took my wife for a 130mph blast on his FJR a few months ago, and now she's got Feejer Fever.
Oh yeah, he let me ride it for about 40 miles of twisties, too.
Bastards. Just when I'm starting to get some shit paid off...
In Big Bend.
Mine's the one in front. Best bike I've ever owned. Period.
+1. Okay, sure ....
Best damn Kool-Aid I've ever drunk, though.
Debt is the American way. Go for it! Besides the economy needs your help.
Hope I was of help.
Wow, you guys, nice bikes!
I have a friend that has a FJ. Looks like an amazing hypertourer. What kind of mpg does it get?
I was on a sportbike ride this spring and a group of FJ's rolled in and one dude had AKRA pipes on his, man was that bike cool. I've been contemplating a FZ1, but I heard mileage is only in the 35 mpg range.
That's why I know I should stop visiting this thread... yet I can't stay out of it!
Seeing them on the street when I'm on my FZ6 doesn't help either. I usually don't have envy problems...
I average just over 40 mpg going cross country with the luggage full with a GIVI top box and a large wind shield. I've seen 46 mpg loaded light running the back roads in SC along the coast. I got 42 mpg loaded heavy in the NC mountains early this year. I'm 6-4 and 270 pounds though, my buddy's get about 42 mpg with smaller shields. I'm running the Cal-Sci XL and it blocks a lot of wind to protect my big self from the bugs and rain and cold etc..
In stop and go traffic I can drop it down to 32 mpg or less if I'm having fun.
If you ride at sane speeds it will get 42 to 46 mpg with the bags on and a touring screen. I got it to 48 mpg riding the OBX area but, it was at grandpa speeds, all under 60 mph with lots of stops and picture taking.
Sure, thanks, let me help you out with your problem.
Oooops! A photo slipped out.
Oh, geez! There's another ...
... sorry. I'll back away from the keyboard now.
Not quite enough ADV stickers, but very nice other than that.
Alum Creek dam, right?
And I bet you road down Bale Kenyon Rd., if its still there.
I've got an FZ1 too, Fun bike. The FJR is smoother way better
wind protection and I like the shaft drive. The FZ is more of a
hooligan. Lighter, but you do have to run the tach high to get
a serious rush. If I could only have one the FJR would win out for
My old 03 FJR could get a little "Frisky" once in a while.
The 06 takes much more effort to loft the wheel.
Just a reminder guys. Ive got a beautiful '06' FJR for sale.
Just search "DETROIT SUCKS" in the flea market.
I can routinely get plus 50 with no bags and riding solo.
Yeah, that helps too!
Oh, I've seen it there, you saucy devil. And in the FJR forum. That just ain't fair. Soooooo tempting, and not very far away. And the right color. Marge wants a blue one.
The time is not quite right, though. First, I need to get this left leg working a little better.
Yep. I wanted to get inside the park for some pictures but the gates had it closed. Oh, well...
Acutally, no, I did not. I rode to the Iron Pony first, then took Rt. 3 north to some road or other, then over to the dam.
I did ride to work this morning (30F). Went for a little spin during lunch and took these with the cell phone camera thingy. (Note - it's a different dam. )
