Add another vote for the Ninja 1000. The new version (2014) is better yet, especially for sport-touring. If the ST aspect is unimportant to you, find a deal on a leftover or used 2013 and previous....

Having ridden both, I concur with the poster. The C14 fits me like a glove (6'2", 205, 35" inseam) and is definitely more confidence-inspiring for me. I also like the look of the C14 much better.

I rode the FZ-09 and the FJR at a recent demo day, and I have to say that I liked the triple better than the 1300's I4. I thoroughly enjoyed the triple, although it was significantly louder. I also...

Same here, I want a mini-FJR as well. I'd rather see it made with the triple, but if the twin is good enough, I'd be ok with it too.

I wouldn't.

I'd rather see it as an ST with cruise, manually adjustable windscreen, fairing with good weather protection, and a larger gas tank. Price it around 10K and I'm in.

It's an excellent choice. Others may mention the FJR because of its maintenance profile (much easier to do yourself, and great valve check intervals), but you'd do great on the Connie.
