I got a 2007 new with the yammie top box, ready for a road trip. don't know which bike is faster for sure, think the fjr is but won't know till I run across an X sometime. Has anyone raced an fjr with their X?? who won? Just curious

Thanks guys, the more I ride it the better I like it :D Yea spoke, I guess it is a little more dangerous doin high speed corners but I have been riding for 36 years and pretty much know my limits. the only thing I can find wrong with it is the stock windsheild is too short for me, have a 3.5" taller one comming. I would recoment this bike to anyone who likes to ride the curves hard but is too old and stiff for the sportbike position :lol: [/quote]

Ever tried a trackday??? :twisted: Do one and you'll gain an entirely new understanding of what riding a MC at speed is all about. The FJR is fully capable for a trackday.

Fast on the street 'ain't nuthin compared to track riding, :twisted: and you'll learn and be able to practice skills (in a controlled environment) that can save your hide out on the street.....

Boy, do I ever! Just got back from a 200 mi. ride and it was great, one tank of gas. do need a cruise control, right hand gets a little numb. seems like the more miles I get on it the faster it gets 8) Its the most fun I've had on a bike in a long time :D

I don't know what tracks are close to you. I bet the guys on the WERA board could tell you. As far as organizations, there's a handful out here where I am, NESBA, Sport Bike Ttacktime (STT), Team Pro-Motion, etc.....

yea I was thinking of getting the kaw 14, but its the first year so could be some issues, the fjr is proven. the seat is a little hard but nothing I can't tolorate for now, yes all the new fjr's are abs, havent tried it yet, something in all my years of riding non abs bikes, won't let me trust em and stomp the peddel. have hit the brakes hard in city traffic and had to peel my wife off my back :lol: Also someone said the kaw is faster, that is not proven yet, it has a few more HP but less tourque and is heavier. :wink:
