Limited availability notwithstanding, I finally got to ride a friends' '03 model last week. (He is battling the Big C and needs to sell it, 1570 miles, asking $11,500.)

I was not that impressed. I ride a Y2K Triumph Sprint ST, and the FJR seemed, I dunno, BIG. So what if it has all that grunt; my Sprint feels quicker. And the driveline lash... at slow cruise, around 45mph, the bike surges against the driveline, especially if there is a breeze blowing.

The seat is quite nice, and the bags are large. I just came away a little disappointed, after getting all fired up looking at them and the articles written on them.

Just one opinion.
