Hello from the Seattle area. Just picked up a 2018 FJR. My recent two bikes are a Vstrom 1000 (still have it) and an Africa twin before that. I've never owned a sport tourer and the FJR seems to fit the bill. First impressions: In sport mode the FJR is an absolute rocket compared to my previous bikes. The LED lights are really good. I like the seat so far. The wind protection is really bad and I will try another wind screen right away. I haven't decided if I need to raise the bars yet, I'll give it a couple of months to get used to. I've never had cruise control before and never wanted it but I really like it. The recall work has been done and I'm hopeful that won't ever be an issue. So far so good!
