1985 Yamaha FJ1100 from United States of America
Good, good, and more good
A friend was dying. I was living in Alaska at the time, and flew to San Francisco to be with he and his wife, to help out and to be there for my friend. He had an FJ1100 in the garage, and suggested I was an unreconstructed biker and he was giving the bike to me. It had been some years since I'd had a bike, a Honda 500cc, about '85, another great bike. He said I would really like that bike and he was right. I had it shipped to Alaska, was living in Fairbanks at the time and that began my romance with the FJ1100. Eventually moved south to Redding, Ca. and then to Hayfork, Ca.
I started over the road trucking, my girlfriend threw me out and a nephew talked me out of my FJ1100 as I was gone all the time. A man once mentioned to me, when he saw my FJ1100 that, "They didn't make enough of those," and to this day I agree with him.
I now own a 2005 FJR1300 and a 2008 Suzuki Bandit 1250. I'm old, I'm fat, but I just can't give up on these types of motorcycles.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
