You wife will love it. I did the same thing as my wife felt the FJR was
not comfortable on long rides.

Wouldn't it be nice if the solution could be buying another FJR for the wife? I know, I know, not possible or reasonable, but it wouldn't it be a thrill getting to ride side by side? Beautiful Goldwing, by the way. I noticed a trailer hitch on the back. Gonna tow a trailer, maybe???

Do you need a CDL for that or just a motorcycle endorsement? :P

Does it come in leather??;) I am kidding. I took a used 07 out for a nice test ride before I bought the FJR. Definitely a nice machine.
If my wife had an interest in riding the FJR would probably have some company. BTW might be neighbors some day as Prescott
is beginning to appear on my radar.

I think it is time for SkooterG to get a Wing. He could just trade in a couple of his FJR's and some $$ and have one of these XL sport touring machines...

You will love it, and your wife will love it more...

You will love Arizona. I would not live anywhere else. You can play golf in Phoenix at 70 degrees or drive two hours to Flagstaff and play in the snow.

She wanted a Trike $$$$. I told her no way on the trike. Been trying to get her off the back of the FJR for awhile but she would not get a bike. The guy didn't tow a trailer it actually came with a ice chest and a luggage rack that attaches to the hitch.

The bike definitely has some power. Don't know how i will ever figure out the buttons on this thing. Will start studying the manuals this weekend. I am keeping the FJR for riding solo.
