Hello fellow FJer's. Just joined as just purchased a 1993 FJ1200. This is my second FJ, but there have been 35 years between them. Been riding continuously since 1964. Had many motorcycles. Never a bad one, just some better than others. Raised on The Wirral, England. Toured extensively in Europe over a thirty year period. Spent seven years in California where I qualified as a CHP motorcycle instructor. Now living in Dordogne looking forward to bringing the FJ up to my standard of motorcycle and enjoying the local roads and countryside.
