Almost perfect machine
By Ed Betty(Owner), Dec. 4, 2008
I say that as nothing is perfect at everything but this bike is pretty close. I have 75K miles on it, commuting to work, 300 mi day rides, 600 *weekend rides and 8k+ cross country trip. It does it all with 40+mpg, comfort, and a whole lot of fun under the right hand. I did replace the seat, and adde... Read Full Review

Response to Review by Thomas
By Jay(Enthusiast), Feb. 24, 2010
I am on my 2nd FJR 1300. I put 75K on my 2004 model (Gen 1) and now have 32K on my 2008 model (Gen II). I dont know what bike Thomas was reviewing, but it surely was not a Yamaha FJR 1300.

There was a bit of a heat issue on the 2004 model, but you will find ALL inline 4 faired bikes have this. Yam... Read Full Review

Good sport tourer
By Lewis Phinney(Owner), Sep. 15, 2008
It isn't quite as fast as the 'Busa or Kawi14; or quite as comfortable as the 'Wing or Voyageur; or quite as economical as the Silver Wing or Bergman, however it does an admirable job of just about anything that an experienced, long distance tourer would require of it, whether it be on the

A smooth rider
By Keith B(Owner), Sep. 16, 2008
After 23,000 miles, this bike turns the miles very easily. Yamaha has not quite gotten the wind management figured out, so even after a couple of windshield changes, the buffeting will keep your head buzzing long after the ride is done. The power is smooth, and rid ride is well controlled without ... Read Full Review
