    Russell Day Long quilted leather for Gen 1

    Recently sold my 2004 FJR. I used the Russell Day Long for weekend trips (which weren't often enough), but usually had a second OEM set of seats for my commutes. New in December 2007, these seats are lightly used. Probably not even fully broken in. I never figured out how to post pictures...

    Broken Key in Ignition

    Short story shorter: my key broke off in the ignition. I was hoping the teeth might line up inside to allow me to use the remainder part of the key to turn the switch and make it work, but no joy. I have a spare key, but until I get the old piece out it appears as if I'm out of luck. A quick...

    Anyone Know a good Goldwing Forum?

    I have enjoyed my FJR for 4 years. Rented a base Goldwing for the day. 200 miles later, the mrs was asking for more. I think I'm more into the touring part of sport touring and have my eye looking to move to that sphere. Would welcome any advice on where I can find similar support and info...

    broken glove box latch

    With no warning today, the latch on the glove box on my '04 failed to open the lid. I pushed, and pushed (key on and in neutral) and it didn't pop up. I needed my phone of there pretty quickly, so I pried the lid open. Then it wouldn't latch shut. Later, I had a chance to go back and check...

    Group Ride from Northern VA/Wash DC area (WMA) to EOM?

    I missed last year, but fully intend to make it this year. I intend to ride, and I'm hoping to convince my wife to drive down separately, participate in a few rides and entertain herself during my solo rides. I'm in Reston, and see from the map that there are several of us in the "washington...

    A Few Questions on GPS Units

    I've read several posts about saying how the Zumo is the way to go. The price is hard to swallow. I'm thinking I could one of the Garmins for the car, and as long as I keep it out of the rain, I'd be OK. Am I wrong? A couple of year ago I bought a TomTom One for the car. It has been fine...

    I love my FJR, but

    Does anyone have first hand info to compare the Ulysses to the FJR? I've had my '04 ABS for just over a year. Went to the motorcycle show today "just to look around." As my buddy and I wandered around, nothing I saw really hit me. I really liked the Triumph Bonneville, but only if I could...

    The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

    I was in the library the other day. In the "hot pics" section I saw "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein. It's a good story as told by the family dog. In order not to spoil, I won't go any farther about the story. I'm sure you can find more info if you're interested. It was a...

    From where do the pics in the banner come?

    I guess I'm slow to appreciate the fact the pics in the banner showing each year are taken from the same angle, with the same lighting and line up perfectly. Where do those pics come from? Is there a story behind that? Looking at the banner and informally counting, it looks as if at the...

    Rolling Thunder, Memorial Day in Washington, DC

    I moved to Northern Virginia nearly 20 years ago. The tradition of Rolling Thunder had begun a few years ago. The concept (as described from an observer) was to get as many people on bikes (mostly loud Harleys, thus the genesis of the name) to gather in the parking lot of the Pentagon, create...

    Newly Tick Free and Loving it

    I bought a 2004 last October. It had 28+K miles, had been tipped over once, but otherwise was in good shape. I thought. After reading posts here, I realized it was a "ticker." The dealership I bought the bike from called Yamaha, and received approval to fix it (free to me). We scheduled a...

    Warrenton, VA Blalock Cycle

    Bought a used (04 with 28+Kmi) FJR from them recently. Salesman provided "full disclosure" on what I was buying. Offer limited warranty which I had to use with leaking fork seals. Fixed no questions or probs. At the same time discussed my opinion my bike was a "Ticker". They contacted...

    Getting Back On The Road

    Bought an 04 with 28+K miles. Knew it would have a few mechanical issues. The leaking front fork was obvious, but only thanks to this forum did I realize I was buying a "ticker." Took the bike to the dealer to fix the fork seals and made my best low pressure plea to try to get the tick fixed...

    Seeking Help Adjusting Suspension

    I recently bought a 2004 FJR1300A. I'd like to experiment a little with adjusting the suspension, but after reading the manual, I'm not quite sure what the "real life" affects of the various adjustments will be. I don't have the manual in front of me, but I recall there being 2 types of...
