Well, Dennis, true enlightenment comes when you realize that man cannot live with just one bike, because none of them do everything well. We don't either, but we WANT to be able to do everything, well or not. I would say, forget the FJR, which is a compromise between touring and sport, and buy two bikes, maybe a used Wing for the one end, and a nice race replica for the other end. Buying recent used you can keep the money in the same range as the new yammy. Heck, with a little luck you might can add a third, maybe a dual-sport with the other two. Think of the possibilities!
