I still have my 3rd fjr with 85000 km (06) and recently traded off my 2nd fjr, another  06 with 165000 km on a 16 super ten. Have put on 6500 km so far (a ride to arizona from saskatchewan) .  Love it so far…. wanted something different than the fjr…and it is. Now have both to enjoy, one up here and one down south for the winter. Heading down again in 2 wks. Able to get a little more off roady with the super ten while down south ::012::

well….adding to the season. End of season ride…. up here in saskatchewan.  centerpunched a deer with my last fjr….. totalled it even though managed to to ride it to a stop after the contact. Deer dead and the fjr after insurance assessment. Ended up getting a 2015 fj09…. sport touring lite??? … maybe time to change up after 3 fjr . Will see how it works out with the super ten ere bought back in august…. variety is good…..back to arizona in 2 weeks for more super T time…. retirement has its advantages!

I first put my vote in this thread after 3 month/10.000 km of ownership.
Back then I voted "It's exactly what I thought it would be".
Now a year later and with +40.000 km on the clock I've changed my vote to "It surpasses my expectations".

This bike just keep surprising me with just how good it is - no matter what I throw at it, it just smiles and say: "OK, lets go!".

It takes time and distance to discover just how versatile and Capable this bike is!
Life is an adventure!
