    My computer and cellphone blew up. When I got the cellphone back up I had a message from the dealer that my bike had been invoiced. Got the check ready for Tuesday, I'm stoked! I'm going to clean the garage today to make room for it. I may need to clean and talk to my other bikes so they don't get jealous.

    They can't find the wheel spacer to put the front wheel on.
    Special ordered one, maybe Wednesday? After six months, what's a few more days?

    fnfalman, I think you jinxed me. Let's only have positive vibes.
    I was scheduled to pick it up today, but noooo... the spacer has not appeared. Tried to get it out of Canada??

    The spacer showed today! I'm going to Summit Point to work on the racecar Saturday, the shop is not far from there. They saved me a thousand bucks, I'll drive 125 miles for that much cash.

    Going to shoot Glocks with the FBI guys from Quantico Sunday!

    WTF is up with the double post an hour difference? It wouldn't let me delete it?

    Got about 350 miles on it so far. My sinus infection is so bad I can hardly ride in the heat. LOL

    Torque band is killer, just twist on it in any RPM range. The weight is a lot less than my ST1100, a plus. Shifter has too long of a throw, guys are putting on shift arms from an R1 as a cure. I like the looks more than the ST, it was blue, blue, or blue. I took two hundred miles to get home from the dealer, wanted to stay off the freeway during break-in, came home and changed the oil. Rode the twisties on Rt 211 over the mountain in Sperryville VA. Turns in nicely, very flickable for a larger bike. The windscreen whistles when fully up, it needs a piece of weather stripping when I figure how to pop the trim off. There's only one small storage compartment pocket in the front, my Glock 27 won't fit!!

    Overall, I would say it rocks. It fits me, and does everything well.

    Good score on the FJR. A friend called today and mentioned she just got one. My brother has one also.

    Everyone loves them.
