Hello, I'm Tyler from SC and glad to be a part of this forum. I have a keen interest in riding and go for a ride every week. I bought a new FJR1300 in red just a couple of months ago and thoroughly enjoyed my journey.

Welcome to the forum, watch out for those other miscreants from SC. Hang around long enough and you will know exactly what we mean about those 3 or 4.

Oh, you bought a pink one, Yamaha calls it red, but we all know it’s a shade of lipstick that Wheatie prefers.......for himself!
I often have found myself when I was not looking, nor did that discovery take place where I thought it would!

Welcome to the group. I recommend you come to one of the gatherings near you so you can meet some of the members up close and personal.

Yeah what he said... this is a great group of people even if they give you a bunch of shit on the color of your bike. ;)

Cheers,

So tylerbennett, where DO you live. SC is a big place. Welcome to the forum, though I am jealous of your RED GEN. 2 FJR. You also did not say if it is an A model {rightside up forks} or an ES model {upside down forks}.
