    Luggage Rack/Plate

    I’d use a Givi sr357 and their metal top plate, which is similar to the one you show, but with additional slots for even more strapping opportunities.

    FJR1300 To Be Retired

    Options are food. Thankfully, the fjr is still available. But I still get a lazy eye for other platforms.

    FJR1300 To Be Retired

    Mine came in sooner than expected. But it still took a few months. I used Yamaha city cases in the mean time.

    Long-Distance Endurance MT10 Project

    Is a FJR a money thing?

    Quite the opposite. I ride quite bit. My BMW broke down often,and didn’t have the reliability, parts availability, or repair shop saturation I required. If I were to go back to BMW, I’d have to have a second sport tourer as a backup, and know a guy on standby with a trailer. If reliability...

    Headlight Modulator suggestions

    It’s plug and play, and eliminates the need for any cutting, splicing, or tapping.

    Is D&H Cycle in Cullman, AL still in business?

    The new owners sell YES warranty for $100 over what the old owners did. Which still beats almost any other deal.

    Fatter Grips

    I don’t care for grip puppies. I prefer grip buddies. But I think the OD on puppies is a little larger.

    What is the worst thing you have seen a cager do?

    Drivers would do well to note that the consequences of their actions can be permanent. For them, not just for others. Some times natural consequences arrive on two wheels.

    Update/resolved & thx. —> Tire mount / balance weight(s) question

    There are only two ways to find out. Riding it and checking for vibration, or removing the wheels and balancing yourself. Looking at the weights isn’t going to give you useful info.

    Mirror Extensions

    The sw motech extenders are superb. If they worked with my clearwater light mounts, I’d still be using them. They are availble form purchase from sw motech.

    My experiment with BMW has taken a downturn

    That matches my experience with bmw. That’s what drove me to Yamaha.

    Thousand mile day.

    I shudder to think of the distances I’d go between stops if I ever cave in and buy an aux tank. Sometimes the zen sets in and stopping is an interruption.

    Thousand mile day.

    Actually, a bun burner is 1500 in 36 hours. A bun burner gold is 1500 in 24 hours. DAMHIK.

    Thousand mile day.

    1,000 miles in a day is easy in most regions. People do it all the time. Some do 1,500 mile days. It’s a very good bike for distance.
