One year ago today, I got my 2015 FJ-09. It had 5797 miles. Now it has 17,661 miles.  Bigsmile

It's a fun bike.

I just traded my wife's little Guzzi Breva for one. Same year and color.  So far she is liking it over her CB500x. She's only ridden it a couple times as I am still kitting it out (top box, throttle lock, GPS mount...).

Honestly I had no desire to ride the CB500X compared to my other bikes. But the FJ09, I will be taking that one out quite a bit. I agree it's a very fun bike!

The day I bought it, I let my wife ride it the last 90 or so miles home. She loved it. It's still a little tall and heavy for her though so she's hoping they'll make an FJ version of the FZ-07.

"she's hoping they'll make an FJ version of the FZ-07."

That was our hope also. But had it on good authority the FJ07 wasn't coming over here anytime soon.  My wife is only 5'=5" but has a 30" inseam so she can get close to both heels down with the seat in the low position on the FJ09. She really likes the idea of the ride modes, traction control and ABS. And this has plenty of passing power in a light package, even loaded up with a weeks worth of gear when touring.

And I like it in A mode!
