The December Motorcyclist discusses modding the new FJR, and includes the Traxxion suspension updates you're doing, Wlf. Nice!

Nothing if you are 160ish pounds and like a mushy suspension.

I've had the AKs and Penske for so long now I had forgotten what a bad suspension was like.

BOO! Happy Halloween, y'all. Some temptress put a plastic pumpkin filled with "fun sized" candy bars in the office yesterday. Are these really more fun than the full sized candy??

Trick or treating here will not be fun for the kids this afternoon and evening. It's rainy and windy, though not cold. Bummer for them.

I never got a pumpkin to carve this year, either. Where's my holiday spirit????

That thing is older than dinosaur dung! - and prolly handles like a spaghetti meatball.
It is purdy. Low miles? Low cost?
Albeit a bit spendy at ~$10K what ya need now is the 2013 iteration CB1100 to keep that old rustbucket company.

Not pristine, but in reasonable shape. A few scratches, but nice overall. I only rode it down the block and it runs nicely. Needs clutch pack, and tires. The buddy that saw it and took me to get it is going to give it the once over before I bring it home.
One thing instantly noticeable was the seat. Did you notice that Lazy-boy?
