    Can "tallish" people ride an FJR comfortably?

    +1, I'm 6'2" with a 35" inseam. 1.5 inch bar "risers", and an RDL seat (in high position). Works good, for 40k miles, so far.

    New ES is home

    Here's a pic of Kevin's new ride via Photobucket He sent it to me attached to an E mail on May 19, reportedly just after getting home with it. Don't worry Kevin, I've got you covered! (Apparently an I Pad is capable of E mailing pictures.)

    Like many others,I have my fuse block mounted in the tail section with the tail light for switched power. No problems with wiring going between tank and heat shield. It's been set up this way for three years, and no issues. I did not use a ready to go harness. Hope this helps!

    purchased 2006 fjr today

    You'll be fine with the plan you've outlined, leave the PC hooked up and get the G2. I don't have a Power Commander, but I get along OK with the G2.

    Cycle World Comparo

    I think it's amazing that the BMW K 1600 GT is apparently now considered a "sport tourer". Pretty soon the Honda F6B will be one too!!!
