Best sport tourer.
I have a 1991 Yamaha FJ1200abs which I ride for six months a year in Ireland. This is a fab ride. Very few faults that I can think of. I ride with my Brother and friends and they have ducatis, ZX12Rs, Busas etc and have little trouble keeping up. Only limitation is the undercarraige which drags a little on the fastest bends. Totally comfortable riding position, very good fairing, rubber mounted engine cranking out 107 rere wheel horse and 80 lbs of torque from down low. Very low centre of gravity and great brakes, especially with braided lines I have also fitted a Scottoiler which is maintenance free and extends chain life by threehundred percent and a nice set of Givi panniers and a top box completes the package. Extremely comfortable for pillion with the low footpegs. This bike has never been surpassed as an all rounder. In the states where I spend the other six months working I ride a 2001 ZRX 1200 eddie rep which is also a fab ride. Similar motor to the FJ with somewhat less comfort. More wind blast but very comfy for 100 mile rides at up to 80 mph. Tons of street cred and handles fantastic. Ride safe everybody. Daithi.
