So I was able to spend the day on the bike and wow it’s nice to get back on two wheels. The FJR is almost flawless. Half the fun for me is making the bike perfect for my particular riding style. Trying to make this happen on my FJR will be more challenging then on my old Harley. There are less aftermarket parts for the FJR and my goal is to make it a long distance sport tour. That means I need my bike to allow me to move my feet to multiple locations and will have to move my handle bars up a few inches to decrease some stress on my wrists. So all I need is Riser contraption for the Handlebars and some sort of Highway Pegs and I’ll have a faultless bike.
I took a long journey yesterday to the Glenn H Curtis Museum in Hammondsport, NY. If you like classical motorcycles, airplanes, boats and cars then you will dig this place. Figure on spending 3 hours exploring all that this place has to offer. Glenn Curtis was a man of many trades. He is known as the Father of Naval Aviation as he designed and built the first Flying Boat. Being an ace pilot, designer, engineer was not enough for this man. He also made awesome motorcycles and was recorded as the world’s fast man on two wheels on his V8 Powered Curtis Motorcycle. The museum is filled with all things cool and is worth the trip. I have attached some photos below to show just a sample of what the museum has to offer.
