I have seen on a couple of occasions a green...yes...GREEN FJR on North Eldridge in Houston. Obviously a new paint job...

Does it belong to anyone here?

Not me, but "Green",
It's my neck of the woods, and will certainly be looking for it.
Would like to see it.

I didn't realize you were on the west side of town. What part? I have seen this guy 2 or 3 tines now within moments of my home.

I did take a pic with my phone, but the quality is poor. I'll see what I can do to post.

Don't see too many other bikers out there in this heatwave. 11:30pm --temp @ 100
Unbelievable.

What shade of green is it?

I caught a glipse of a green bike on Saturday (out in Fulshear) and thought it looked like a FJR. (It was headed away from me at about 100 yards.) I convinced myself that I must be wrong. It was pretty bright green. Not quite what I'd call Lime. But pretty bright.

I'm just down the street from you. Eldridge and Tanner.

Way too hot right now. I have a good summer jacket...but I can't handle wearing it in this heat. My bike is parked for a few more weeks until this heat dies down.

I would say its not as bright as Kawasaki green (used on Ninjas and KX bikes) but close. Definately had limey tones and it almost had a metalic quality. If I recall, he had a trunk that was painted to match.

My office overlooks Eldridge so I'll keep an eye out.
