Title: Two years ago today
Post by: jay547 on May 15, 2018, 08:34:09 pm
I got my 2015 FJ-09. It had 5797 miles on it. Now it has 27,784 miles.  It's a fun ride.

Sharp-looking bike. Looks like you've got it farkled up properly for sport-touring. Maybe enough to even get out of OK, hehehe.

That's a good amount of miles, you must go just about everywhere on it. ...or take a lot of long tours.

For the record, that pic is in Missouri.  I ride it to work a lot so that racks up the miles. And I would probably have double the miles if I didn't ride my dual-sport so much instead. No long tours, just Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, and Missouri.

I lived in MO and OK.
Got my first bike in MO and had a bike when in OK.
I've ridden thru AR.
I gotta ask, what's in KS?

I like small-town America. Kansas has an abundance of that. But I generally do those kind of rides on my dual-sport bike.

This awesome bridge is in Kansas.

Is it really just flat?

Very gently rolling hills.  But it's amazing to roll down a road and realize you are seeing a grain silo 5+ miles away.  In the East, there are too many trees to do this.  In the west, you have that kind of visibility once you've ridden a twisty road up a mountain.

Hmmph! It's a wonder that Yamaha has made it over 20,000 miles. Regardless of years!!!

Well, yeah. They probably served you crow. :lol:

The slogan should be "Something to cluck about."




A big disappointment.

I put another 500+ miles on it this weekend riding in Arkansas = not flat. Didn't have any chicken either.
