If you decide to keep it, I'd recommend you get a LOT of training so you learn to handle it. Take an advanced riding course (start with the beginner course, if you haven't already done that). You should also become an active member on the FJR Forum as well. There are lots of guys there with experience who might be able to help you out in some way.What I’ve been thinking about is this – My riding has gotten more dangerous in some areas indirectly proportional to my improved skill. I know I am better able to handle a situation that may arise with my improved riding. But if a surprise happens on a corner there is a good chance I’ll be going faster than I used to when I wasn’t as confident. I don’t hang way off like I learned in Lee Parks Total Control training, but I still shift my weight and setup the corner and find I have to be going pretty fast to get the feel of the lean I’m desiring.
:thumbsup: Truth.Learn to do the things you think you cannot do. If you have the belief that you can do it, then you will acquire the ability to do it even if you may not have it in the beginning. As your confidence grows learn to embrace it. Confidence is just believing in you and having the skills to back it up. Whereas cockiness is bragging or showing off without the needed skills to back it up.
You raise a very good point. The FJR is known to have a jerky throttle. A lot of riders remap it with a Power Commander to smooth it out.One of the hardest things for me to learn was proper hand positioning. On more than one occasion I accidently grabbed too much throttle. Thankfully, my bike is a very forgiving bike and I didn't get myself in much trouble. Scared the pants off of me, but made me learn the proper hand position. I can't even imagine doing that on a bike like this.
Ok thank you. i have been misinformedNo. SuperSports are 600cc race replicas. ZX6r, R6, GSXR600, CBR600RR.
Superbikes are the 1000cc counterparts to those bikes, but sometimes dealers list them as supersports as well.
The term "sport bike" on the other hand is a very broad category. A bike doesn't have to be a super sport to be a sport bike. A Ninja 250 is a sport bike. A CB300F is a sport bike. Neither of these bikes is very fast or very expensive, but contrary to what the general bike buying public thinks, they don't have to be to be considered a sport bike.
