Yep, it is relatively unchanged since its birth in 2005. Have always liked it, and would have bought one. I am leaning heavy on a R1200 GS Adventure. But, the FJR will always be a contender, so long as it isn't the electronic shift.

Let me clarify my last post some. It is not that I am against change, I welcome it. However, there have been zero new designs/redeisgns from Yamaha's recent releases that alpeal to me.

I don't think you're going to win any races on that thing, and nobody is going to buy your million mile museum piece.... so link a cool r1 or something :moon:

You say this as if it matters...unlike some people :poke: I buy my bikes to actually ride them, not for resale value. :twofinger: ;)

The greatest value, for a bike, is the amount of enjoyment you get when you're riding it.

Well it's official...although it lists for only $300 less than the FZ1. I was hoping for something a little further between the FZ1 and FZ-09, price-wise. Comes with some nice additions from the factory, though, like a 12v outlet.

You will absolutely love that inline 3 cylinder engine! After riding 1-4 cylinder bikes, 3 cylinders is awesome on the street! Go to youtube.com and type in fz09 0-60 mph acceleration and watch a few vids. Speaks for itself. I still cant stop laughing leaving stop signs. Have fun!
