Re: You just don't get it.

Verrrry nice link!

No $10 head there!

(I refer, of course, to the old Bell ad.)

I haven't seen any posts here from a 1300 owner, have I? I rode one of the first year bikes around town and I'll tell you, it's a heck of a bike; but I wouldn't trade my Sprint ST for it. It feels like a locomotive. You have serious power, but you are also motivating a big piece of machinery.



Hey Staff, how about making a demographic table that shows the ages, gender and bike ownership (Make(s) and Model(s)) of the MO members. It'd be interesting to see what the membership looks like.

The only benefit you would get with the FJR would be a lot of weight and ABS (if you bought that version).



I put about 40 in-town miles on the FJR and when I went to swap back to my Sprint, I almost threw the thing over, it was so much... smaller, I guess. Significant difference in "presence".



Put the K&N filter and "off-road" pipe on the 955 and keep the Sprint! If you really think you need it, buy a taller windscreen.



BTW, I'm about to put a used set of GENMAR risers and a never assembled set of Silver bags with almost all mounting hardware (minus the reinforcement plates) up for sale. Also, a never-farted-on seat, a never used stock windscreen and grab handle. They are take-offs (except the risers) from my '03 bike. I used a lot of stuff, including my bags, from my dearly departed '00 Black bike. And I've decided I don't need the GENMARs.
