well guys….its been a busy year. Have traded in my high mileage fjr (06) in sept for a new Super T… love it and rode it to Arizona and have it there for the winter (cold up here in Saskatchewan). Already have been south for a wk ride and will be back down there for 3 weeks at christmas. However, 2 wk ago, up here, I centerpunched a deer with my other fjr (a low mileage 06)….looks to be totalled off even though rode it to a stop….deer dead, forks bent, wheel pushed into fairing, guts and blood everywhere…. Now the question, another fjr for up here (would be my 4th)…. or try something different. Been looking at a 15 fj 09 with no miles and bags?
? Should I go for it or would that be blasphemy. Still have my 1250 suzuki Bandit as another backup ( great bike but not a Yamaha) . Been on 2 wheels for 45 years and and this is my first "major" wildlife episode…not counting the deer I took out with my quad a number of years ago….
