My goodness, what a small bike. I had to drive the car Saturday to take my nephew to his MC safety class. My friend has an FJR and his wife has the 650. She has had it for three years an only has 2600 miles on it. I was told it needs to be ridden and please take it for a ride. So, off we go. Yuck. After you've been riding a bike that is almost double the size, it is hard to go smaller. Got used to how it handled after a mile or so. But, jeez, is this natural?
