Hello from the UK

Post by raesewell » Tue Apr 16, 2019 4:25 am

Hello one and all my name is Rae, I am originally from London UK and now live in West Yorkshire UK.
I have a 2013 Gen 4 (Gen 3 in the USA and Canada) in Midnight Black. I do a lot of European touring with my wife who rides pillion.
Hope I can contribute to the forum and be of use to you all.
See you around
Rae

Welcome Rae

I also have a 2013. Mine is gray and I like the color.
I bet that black looks really nice. Got any pictures of your bike?

Hey Rae...you don't need to post up very much to have fun around here...but a few more posts and I think the board options open up around here. I usually don't post very much, but since my accident 3 weeks ago I have about 6000 posts.

They are all pretty much the same really :D but I like it and must agree the FJR are nice looking sports tourers.
