That’s jwilly sales. I keep them a few years until they get banged up and higher mileage. Jwilly periodically yeets FJR’s off sweet jumps and totals them, for America. He has an FJR subscription. I just dabble.

I think you wear them out faster than anyone through normal riding. I think Yamaha keeps the FJR going just for you and JWilly, ya'll are an official part of the balance sheet.

It's all a matter of perspective. In this case we are comparing to JWilly, in which case Mr. Lumberg is quite normal. Compared to the rest of us, eh, not so much.

I guess you've ridden with Lumberg, so I defer to your expertise. :mrgreen:

You can retrofit a quickshifter, but do you really need it?

Traxxion has re-done many ES.

Yes a R1M would look good next to a 22 FJR.

I always get blessed by the boss when looking at new bikes. In my case it's a trap. She is also looking at new bikes. So it costs us double.

He hasn’t ridden an fjr more than a couple of blocks since he started his current company (with the exception of a couple of trips) . Huge revenue. Schedule packed halfway into next year. Already outgrew their first accounting firm (there’s your sign). Happy for the success, but looking forward to when he gets to get out and sacrifice tires to the mountain gods again.

I know a guy that has already purchased helis for a bike he does not yet own. And has removed nonessentials and staged stuff to be swapped off his current bike. He must be crazy or something.

Likely certifiable... like someone else I know.
