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.
