Addition to the Stable

After taking a 7 week, 8500 mile trip on my Versys, and now being retired, I started looking for a serious touring bike. My V is just 6 months old and I still love it, especially for my day rides. But, my long term plans were calling for the touring ride.

After shopping for several weeks and getting input from several riding buddies, I pulled the trigger. Yesterday I picked up a 2010 FJR1300 from a dealer in Colorado Springs, with only 4250 miles on it. It is like new, just what I wanted. I flew in Monday, made the transaction yesterday, and rode away with it.


Since I live in CA it was a perfect opportunity to tour, right? a ridding buddy who knows the area plotted some routes for me. He has me riding many twisty roads over 4 days before reaching CA. I can't predict at this point how much I will take in, because part of me wants to get home with it.

I'll see if I can post a pic from the hotel.
