    Hi Dan! Welcome from Southern California! If you take good care of that bike, you might even see 200K miles on the odo, not just 100K. Some forum members here rode their bikes past the 200K mile mark. RiderJoe

    Well, congratulations to your new ride! You mentioned that the PO was a Yamaha mechanic. That’s good news (hopefully). Still, you should check out the bike thoroughly. Age of tires, rubber parts (hoses) quality, etc. Also, since the bike hasn’t been ridden a lot, I would recommend a change of...

    Greetings and salutations

    20 years on the Concours? Awesome! You beat me by three years on my first (2003) FJR, which I sold in 2020 to get a very nice 2006 with 7K miles on her. Enjoy your rides!

    Back to the FJR

    You've got great Gen II in beautiful condition there! Enjoy your rides on her for many, many years to come! RiderJoe from Southern California Question to forum members: The Delkevic cans on @Mixagon's bike appear identical to the Leo Vince exhausts my '06 came with (except his is chrome, and...

    Vmax to FJR

    I traded my ‘86 Magna V65 in 2003 for the first FJR1300 my local dealer was able to order (that is when the FJR became available in the U.S.). Like the OP, I loved the Magna but with 100 mile gaps between fuel stops, no place to pack, and little room left behind me for my wife, it was not the...

    FJR NooB here!

    @d EVOlved 1 welcome to the Forum from So. Cal! Ride safe, and keep the shiny side up! I had an '03, and yes, it put out a lot of heat. You won't be able to completely eliminate it, but can improve on how much of it is hitting you. Weather stripping worked for me, and a heat resistant...

    New owner in SoCal

    Deer Creek Road is one of my favorites. I think that it is much nicer going towards HWY1 though, especially on clear days. Spectacular views of the ocean and the islands - but keep your eyes on the road too! I am only a few miles away from you in Moorpark. Welcome to the forum!

    Motorcycle Junkie

    Welcome @Playwelder ! I am in So Cal, 59 years old, and been riding for 36 years. I used a Vistacruise on my bikes so far. It is an inexpensive throttle lock - not a cruise control - but allows me to give my right hand a break on straight roads or superslabs which I try to avoid as much as I...
