Sashay South video

...Sashay South from the seat of my FJR this past weekend. New River Gorge, BRP, Fontana Dam, NC 209 near Hot Springs and a stretch of private stock on my way home. Great weekend with great friends.

Low resolution & small format to save some file space, but I think you'll get the idea. Hope you enjoy.

Simply wonderful

Nobody thinks that something is so easy like who is totally unable to do it.

Great colors and seeing those roads again makes me miss those Smokey Mtns..
I also kind of miss my FJR after seeing this video. I put 80k on an 06 and loved ever minute of it. Started having some issues with suspension and clutch plates (expected after what I put it through) so traded it for the Versys.
Loving the Versys though.

Thanks everyone. Glad y'all liked it. Was a very good ride.

@Bear...sorry man, now yer just takin' all the fun out of wearing you down.

@duffyduck...appreciate the kind words.

@Fastoman...on a lanyard around my neck. Stupidly on my part, much of it was filmed while holding camera in my hand and steering with the other. Flip camera riding in the pocket of my safety vest (still tethered to my neck) for the truly twisty sections. Plan to try velcro next time out.

@Thumper...I hear ya about the FJR suspension thing. Mine's got 50K on it and the stock rear shock is now the limiting factor in riding agressively. Am torn between a current group buy on Ohlins front and rear upgrade or replacing the FJR w/ a Super Tenere. Either way, my Versys will remain (I hope, though if I trade, sure won't be easy to convince the boss). But I too already know I will miss that exquisite 3rd gear torque on the FJR.
