I currently have a DL1000, and have owned a FJR. We bought the FJR for a 2up bike. It never really worked out for us. My wife never felt comfortable on it, neither did I. She had her own bike, but wanted to ride 2up some. (i hate 2up riding on anything) I put 15K on it in 18 months (mostly solo) but never really "connected" with the FJR, it was top heavy, heavy in general, and never liked the ergo's. Great engine, and handling once you got moving.

We went without a bike for 2up riding for a few years, then my wife decided not to ride anymore...The Vstrom was a good "compromise" for me anyway (she was talking about Goldwings, cruisers etc.) It is a much better 2up bike for us anyway, she says it's the most comfortable for her we have had. The Vstrom will never make my favorite list, but its good for why we bought it. I also have owned Gen 1 FZ1's, and they are right at the top of my favorite's list with the Versys.
