Sell the Fazer......well maybe not!
« on: 10 July 2014, 11:21:48 PM »
Earlier this month I was looking to sell my Gen II Fazer and swap for an FJR just for something different  :rolleyes
Having had 9 Fazers I thought it was time for a bit of a rest......

Did not quite work out that way and ended up buying an XJR to keep the Fazer company in my garage......Wife was not too impressed.
Not quite another Fazer but it is a Yamaha  :)

Congrats and Good choice, love them. Sticking with my fazer for foreseeable future but xjr is most likely upgrade route for me when time finally comes. My brother has lived with his for few months now and says its a keeper, not perfect but pretty good all round and great looking to my eyes.

Its my 2nd XJR....had one 10 years ago and regretted selling it.
Did the same 50 mile circuit on each bike this week which was an interesting comparison.
Riding the Fazer is effortless but after the XJR I was knackered....need to eat a few less pies I think  :rolleyes
