Very nice Gen II FJR!!! Mine is plenty fast for me. ;) Not liter-bike fast, but a rocket none the less.

If you don't have 'the bug', you're better off. Crashing hurts worse on a bike than in a car. It's kinda odd to start the day on a bike, and finish it in a helicopter.

I don't remember seeing them when I went in the theater, so it's possible (can't trust my old man memory), that the Camaro driver left them.

I am still using the stock knob. I can only notice the increased transmision noise with the windows rolled up, and the radio quite soft. There is an increase in noise, it's just not very much.

I love my MGW shifter. One thing I don't care for is the increase in transmission noise (slight) in the cabin. It's a small price to pay to get rid of that rubbery POS stock shifter.

YMMV
