I'm not a stop light bandit, but I also don't like having to go to the trouble of passing on twisty two laners if I don't have to. I figured it would be trivial to stay ahead of the Harley and be on our way.

Then the light turned green and the Harley shot off like a rocket. I didn't anticipate it would be long before he shifted that would be that. I short shifted and he kept gaining ground. At that point I just pinned the throttle and we went past them with our front wheel about level with their heads.

And that was my first experience with the FJR.

I had so much fun on that trip, I bought one when I got home.

Here's that FJR chasing a friend on an R1 up Windy Ridge up to Mt St Helens.
