Got my 2005 - FJR1300A in May last year and I have done 17000Kms since then, throughout Europe and loved every minute. This bike ticks all the boxes for me. Bucket fulls of power from low down sometimes feels like a Auto as it will pull from 30KMS/h to max in 5th gear like a train. Its comfortable and reliable with a good fuel range thanks to the big 25L tank. The adjustable winscreen is another major plus which makes my mates enviouse no more buffeting down motorways put the screen up and hide in the quiet zone.
Due to the low scoop faring this is not any good for off roading as there is a very low ground clearance plus the heavy weight can be a problem to balence.
The only regret I have is that the bike could do with a 6th gear as it has the grunt for it, I keep finding myself trying to change up on motorways.

I went on a couple of trips with mates on Hyabusa and a Fireblade and kept up with them without any problem although it is a heavy long bike so tight bends have to taken carefully.

The only changes that have made are to change the standard Continental tyres for new Dunlop Sports MAX which has transformed the handling and the brake pads thats it.

I have installed a Garmin Zumo 660 GPS, a 12v power socket.

The bike is very easy to maintain and service myself which is satisfying and saves money.

I've owned my FJR for 4 years. Its a 2001 model, in black, and I have updated it with an MRA screen, Tomtom rider satnav, heated grips and a few other bits and pieces.

It is definately the best bike I have owned in the 21 years that I have been riding.

The engine is amazing. Even fully loaded it will pull to warp factor speeds with little or no effort.

I have used it for 4 trips across to Europe and it has never let me down.

I recently looked at trading it in for a R1200 GSA. I test rode several BMWs and even though I enjoyed them when I got back onto the FJR I realised just how comfortable it was.

An added bonus for me is my annual insurance cost, fully comp/protected NCB is £65.....

Overall - an awesome bike that I would not hestitate to recommend to anyone.

I bought my FJR unseen un ridden based completely on the write ups in the bike media and of course the renowned pedigree of the FJ100 and FJ1200. It was one of the 1st FJR1300's on the road in 2001. And I have never been disappointed.

If I could only ever have one bike The FJR1300 would deffiatively be IT! last answer ;)

I Have covered 140,000 Kms mostly 2 up on this outstanding bike and it is still as strong and interesting to ride as the day I bought it. I also own a Triumph Rocket III and a Moto Guzzi Stelvio 4v
