    Re: And the FJR 1300A has arrived.

    No, it surely does not. I hate to spend money on the bike that is wasted and w/seats, you just never know. Glad the Sargent worked out so well for the FJR.

    Dennis and I saw it today. I had ZERO expectations going in but had read some rave reviews. Frankly, when it first previewed months ago, I gave it a mighty shrug of the shoulders, as if, 'who cares?'...
