A true long distance machine, you can ride over a 1,000 miles and step off as fresh as when youbegan.
The FJ1100 is more fuel efficient though.
The FJ owners club is the best.

www.fjclub.co.uk is your best resource for FJ bits. They have been working on them for many years and are reasonable in price as well. I had one and loved, awesome bikes.

A good bike.
Reliable but not perfect as they are getting old now, from my experience of 4 of them that I've owned:
Very very heavy, forget back road scratching.Quite heavy on fuel if you nail it. Eats headstock bearings and brake discs. Hydraulic clutch slave cylinders are crap and fail regularly. OE rear shock is terrible but most will have been replaced by now. Electrical problems due to corroded connectors behind the fairing panels are becoming more common. If you miss the 1st to 2nd gear change once you'll knacker the dogs and it'll jump out of 2nd until you fix it. Usual Yamaha quick bind brake calipers, make sure you wash down after every ride in winter.
