The Garage

Me cruising on US129, aka, The Dragon

Hitting the infamous Dragon 2up with my now ex-wife, US129.

I've owned several bikes over the years, but this section focuses primarily on my 2015 Yamaha FJR1300ES, 2007 Yamaha FJR1300A, and, to a lesser extent, my old 2004 Yamaha FZ6. I've sold the FZ6; however, I'm keeping the information here for referencing by other owners (you can never have too much user-experience information on bikes).


  • - A pretty hardcore FJR community, but chock full of excellent reference material and tips.
  • - Another great FJR community, a little more relaxed than the other FJR forum.
  • - An excellent community for overall sport touring.
  • - Another community, devoted to adventure riding, on and off road. Excellent photographic ride reports!
