Did anybody point out that the FJR 1300 is an "off-the-shelf" bike in Europe? Not that long ago we were reading reviews of the European version of this bike replete with editorial whining that they don’t sell it over here. (You can see an example of this kind of "why can’t we get it here" whining at the "Unofficial U.S. Varadero Homepage" http://www.geocities.com/honda_varadero/Varapage.htm )

So Yamaha listens to the whiners in the Unites States and makes arrangements to sell them the bike they want without a huge factory or dealer commitment. The whiners get their bike, Yamaha and their dealers make a fair buck on a good bike, and nobody loses. Nobody, that is, except for the other whiners that wouldn’t buy the bike anyway.

Give the people what they want. What a concept!
