A few years ago we spent a brilliant twelve months on the class leading tourer and R1 in disguise on an open road! We’ve done Bikesafe with the Police Service of Northern Ireland. While we were there we saw how the professionals handle their FJR1300s while getting a few gentle and helpful top tips on how to better manage ours!
We also took in a ten day motorcycle trip to France and Belgium with Celtic Horizon Tours . While over in Europe, the bike behaved perfectly. The standard luggage capacity of two generous panniers was more than enough for a solo rider on a trip of that length.
We spent most of our time on the bike running up and down the country to our rural retreat. While that sounds good in the summer, the Christmas run was a little challenging with the snow and all that. The YamahaFJR1300AE behaved in the cold as we would have expected something from the tall touring end of the market, such as Yamaha's own Super Tenere.
The machine also featured on a number of charity runs, dealer demo days and test ride events. The great news, for you, is that the bike has now been released as an Ultimate Edition. This machine is the full spec AE offering that is finished in a very special way. The bike is dressed out in black with gold detailing including the three spoke wheels.
Each FJR is individually numbered and even the grab bars, filler cap and all the rider controls including the levers, bars and risers are finished in black. Because it’s a limited run they’ve all been built at this stage and, once they’re gone, they’re gone.
