While the Honda Shadow will forever hold a spot near to my heart, I decided an ST was a better fit for my needs so I found myself a new steed: 2008 Yamaha FJR1300.

Loved the ride home, and looking forward to the 2 hour 1-way trip to Manassas 3 times a week.

Way to go John! She is beautiful! Mind that throttle boy, that's a LOT of bike, a LOT of power.

Be safe! :D

Congrats on your FJR!

In fact, I just traded mine off for another Valkyrie because the FJR's riding position is a little too sporty for my ever-stiffening joints. I will be listing one of the Valks on CL in the next couple of weeks. They are both Tourers and I don't need two of them.

Nice ride, I would have went with the ST myself if I was riding solo. The wing is big.

The FJ is a nice choice :)

I fell in love with a silver 2007 but was way too vertically challenged to handle it confidently. At 75, the Shadow just made more sense for me.

Nice bike, I too am interested in trying out a ST. I don't know if I like the Honda ST1300 or the Kawasaki Concours 14

I took one for a test ride at the dealers and liked it a lot but it was $6000 more than the VT1300 so I had to pass. Great touring bike though.
