    It is a nice looking bike, but the thing that always gets me is the open holes on the now unused airbox when individual air cleaners are installed. I would grind off the intake pipe fitting and fill...

    I understand that the drive is different but if he has no play, he still needs to change the leaking seal, right? I'm saying don't leave the seal in a leaking state.

    I would not recommend riding an RT, GT, or 16 without the bags for two reasons (I think it looks good w/o bags).

    1) If you low side, the bag takes a beating, but it holds the bike up. I've seen...

    It's also tough to compare the inline 4 FJR with the twin boxer. The FJR is more comparable to the K13GT. Some of this will boil down to age. I find guys of my "vintage" love twins (any style twin)...

    Several of my buddies have FJRs (most recent, 2013); The FJR is a great bike. Here's how I view it:

    Both the RT and the FJR are sport tourers. Imagine a scale from 1 to 10. 1 is full on sport...

    That's very cool, Jim. I have your DVD, but in that, I think you bumped the rear wheel instead of the wrench. This looks nice. Did you remove the plugs or just go for it?
