1990 Yamaha FJ 1200

Just picked my 1990 Yamaha FJ 1200 to go along with the Connie. Man is it sweet. Bike looks brand new. Just got to get use to the throttle though. It is a beast.

Nice bike, friend of mine had one that I would ride (I still had an old XS11 back then).
FJ was a great sport touring bike. Enjoy her!  :great:

I had a 1991, great bikes!!!  Not sure what you mean by getting used to the throttle though  :)) 100hp doesn't scare me much

Congrats on finding a nice old FJ! A torque monster and bone simple. Some of them ate 2nd gears. Soft luggage is the ticket. Have fun!
