Euro ones are real nice but cost WAY too much to maintain and insure. So I am looking at GTR1400 or FJR1300 or ST1300 or VFR1200?? So far: All bikes tried so far are sort of reasonably equivalent in price and comfort without any customization and aftermarket bits. ST1300 - I find this bike completely capable, reliable, practical & functional but totally soulless. There is nothing hineous but nothing outstanding either. (seat and bars OK - but not great) FJR1300 - More comfortable seat but the bar height is a little low nothing major, seems a bit more sporty than the ST1300 in the engine department and more torque than the GTR1400 at low (200) rpm. GTR1400 - Seat height seems taller than what it is - but not uncomfortably so. Seat would need alteration though - maybe even replacing as the squab tilts me forward and I seem to slide onto the tank, bars will need their angle altered slightly as well as raising slightly. Motor is laggy at low rpms but fantastic once over about 3500rpm. I think this is possibly my fav of the bunch. Not sure why the mirrors seem to provide a great view of the luggage no matter how they are adjusted?? VFR1200 - not ridden yet Any owners like to give me a bit of a long term view on any of these bikes and any short comings they found after the honeymoon period has passed? Happy to hear of good experiences also.
