Though I own a Harley-Davidson Sportster, my favorite category of motorcycle is actually sport touring. I love bikes that can do it all — long distance travel, local commuting and weekend fun — with few compromises.
The 2016 Yamaha FJR1300 can do it all. I got to ride the latest versions on a launch event in Arizona recently, and I wrote about for Forbes.com and a magazine called “Arizona Driver,” published by my buddy Joe Sage.
You can read my 2016 Yamaha FJR1300 Test Ride and Review on Forbes.com, and you can see my review and Arizona travel story in the May/June 2016 issue of Arizona Driver on pages 46 – 50.
