The FJR sold today. It has been an honor to be associated with
such esteamed characters such as your self's. Thanks for all the
help and guidance. I just need a smaller bike at this stage of
my life since I am shrinking with the effects of gravity and old
age :( . I'll be riding this home from Issaquah next week

Just because you went to the Kawi sure doesn't mean that you have to leave us. Congrats on the new scoot!

You are never to old to learn something stupid.

Once you've become a part of the wonderful community here, just because you ride something other than the FJR, doesn't mean you have to sign off and not still be a part of it. The friendships remain no matter what you ride. B)

Live simply, Love generously, Care deeply, Speak kindly.

A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles.

Hey, you said you were old and can't run fast!
Old Michael likes em that way! :P


So just stick around huh?
Actually, I'd like to see the fjr forum turn into 'bikers forum' or 'riders forum'.
I really like hearing what peeps on other marques have to say abooot their rides..

It's not about the bike, but about the person, Tom. Happy to see you stick around. :)

...of course, the FJR is a filter to find the right folks...then we don't care what you ride... :D

I'm sorry, but I actually ride a Super Tenere now... ;)
