Fool me once......
My first day riding it to work and as soon as I get off the bike one of the guys just gets on it and kicks the saddlebag scratching it. I was so mad. The bad thing is the same guy did the same thing with my c14.
Only a motorcycle rider knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window.

You did SAY SOMETHING, right? He does KNOW what he did??
Of course not. He got off and acted like nothing happened.

Thats what I always say when people start pushing buttons and twisting the throttle. Im going to get in there car and do the same. I griped about it all day. I got on it this morning to go home and say them and started fuming again.
That first scratch is a real downer, especially if you didn't do it. Stuff like that will eat at you if you don't let it go.
Is it really a scratch? Or maybe just a mar that can be rubbed out. I hope that is all it is, and I hope you can forget about that incident and enjoy riding your sweet '07 FJR, the sweetest color known to any bike anywhere!
Congrats to you on your new to you Yamaha FJR, the apex of motorcycles.
Now go out there and ride, it will put distance between you and any bad memory.

I can think of no insult in our language suitable for the sort of person who would scratch the Black Cherry paint on an FJR and not even apologize. I hate him and hate anyone who does not hate him. That said, congratulations on your purchase. I hope it serves you well.
Haha. Its in the paint and wont buff out. It had a few scratches on it anyway. If it would have been mint I would have lost my temper.
