    Default 2017 Road Trip FZ6R

    Just finished a 9700 Km road trip on my 2015 FZ6R. St. John's Newfoundland to Birmingham, Alabama. Rode Blue Ridge Parkway, Tail of the Dragon, and Cherohola Parkway. Wore out my front tire, at the 16,200 Km mark (bike total KMs). Had no bike issues whatsoever.

    Looks like a great trip! I was wondering what windscreen you have? The original one allows for too much turbulence for long trips (at least for me).

    I bought the Zero Gravity Sport Touring wind screen on Ebay. Works perfectly.

    Sweet ride!!!
    The 6R is a great touring ride once setup right. I took mine on a farewell tour from West Palm Beach to Montreal roundtrip before I sold it passing by New Brunswick and Perce. I planned to visit St-Johns but the weather was horrible the day I got there so I went North instead.
