    What to do with a high mileage 2003 FJR ?

    From A guy that had 3 in the garage until last summer. Two 03 FJR's and a wing. The advantage of walking out to the garage on a Sunday morning and playing eny meanie miny moe was over ridden with the silly cost of insuring 3 bikes. Spread the word amongst your riding partners and I'm sure they...

    CFR 2017 Atigonish Nova Scotia August 25 - 27

    So thanks to Mary Ellen, Scott and Rob, just kicked myself in the ass...... Let me explain, Was thinking I have to finish the basement renovations as it is taking too long and starting to cost too much and if we went to Nerds and CFR it would just add to the credit card budget ? Is there really...

    Sorry Boss, I'm going...
