No Garage Queens allowed in this thread!

This thread is all about those FJR Pilots who RIDE!!!! So post up, and I'll add you to the list.

Blue=highest mileage for a model year of FJR. Actual mileage will be listed. Red=That FJR is no longer with us.

(BTW, proper protocol dictates that whenever another FJR rider is in the presence of the top rider on the list, they are to buy him a beverage of the Top Dog's choice!) ;)


Added: Link to blufjr's mileage milestone avatars. Thanks for doing this Ken! Clicky for Mileage Milestone Avatars!

If any of you are looking for that special signature avatar (?) to express your pride in sticking with one ride, and that ride providing for you all those miles. Like these:
100K%2009CLUB.jpg or 150K%2007CLUB.jpg  or 200K%2003CLUB.jpg or  300K%2003CLUB.jpg

You will find all 100K & 200K CLUB (clicky), for the different years 03-09:

Just left click on image, click on view image, copy http:// location, then use "insert image" in tool bar to locate in your signature. Show us your pride.

Ahhhh, what the hell....can't compete with most of you basties, but just turned 50,000 this weekend.

Probably would have been 100K if not for 1 year of inactivity followed by 10 months of rebuild time.

C'est la vie.

Skoot....you're a crazy bastard! Have fun managing the thread.

Greg, FYI my data is substantially off. Feel free either to check the FJR 1300 registry since this data is already captured and regularly update there...or pull it off if I'm going to need to also update it here.

Thanks. wink.gif

65,400 '03, but only 25,000 are mine. Judge me as to fitness.

Daily rider, fun is on weekends when I've got gas money. (Not very often, lately. sad.gif )

As for beverages, ScooterG, you're not gonna be able to walk around by yourself soon, or you're gonna find people turning around and leaving when they see ya coming. . . . .

BTW, your own registry info is significantly out of date, even though you still top that list. Only 171,000 displayed there.

Are you the reason I'm so far above average?
I'm always right, yet it continues to surprise people! How can that be?

Big Sky has 57,000 on the bright red '03. Stolen, totaled, restored in 2005, sitting in the garage every year mid Oct.-mid-March here in the northern Montana Rockies. Plan to keep it...forever? Now I'm also putting miles on a DL 1000 V-Strom.

How about total pillion miles? I'd bet my Marilyn has been on the back for about 50,000 of the 57,000.
"Let us endeavor so to live, that when we come to die, even the undertaker will be sorry."
- Mark Twain

"The Edge... There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. The others - the living - are those who pushed their luck as far as they felt they could handle it, and then pulled back, or slowed down, or did whatever they had to when it came time to choose between Now and Later."
- Dr. Hunter S. Thompson
