FJR400R is Japan-only standard-retro I-4 - looks sharp, but only made to meet licensing / power restrictions.

FJR800 is a wish-list bike - Does Yamaha even make an 800cc engine anymore? Crusier twin or off-road quad or snow-mobile motor?

I thought about the K1300S as a high speed sport tourer. Bought a ZX-14R instead. Not disappointed.

S1000 HP4

ZX14R would be my second choice.

The FZ8 is a standard, slotted inbetween the FZ1 and the FZ6, with an 800cc I-4. I suppose they could make an FJR version if they wished.

As long as wish-list bikes are permitted, I'll take a BMW K1600R, please.

The motor is just a sleeved down FZ1 motor though, so I don't see any benefit to losing the extra 200ccs... weight is the same.

less valve area = more intake velocity, lighter crank/rods/pistons, blahblahblah

Well, picking the F800R up even as we speak.

Now, if somebody'd he'p me out with the Triumph, I could get busy finding the RT.

Sorry, Gryph, not my bike, but my buddy in Seattle used to own one. It might be around here somewhere?

Hey - nobody ever posts a bike here that I would NOT like to ride.... It's fun looking at the choices.

Fuel consumption isn't.

When I'm dreaming of my next tour it's a GS1200A, but when I'm walking down the hochstrasse it varies between a Griso, an S1000RR or a Fireblade or, when I'm in a nostalgic mood - a Suzi GS1100 :-) and when I'm in a silly mood it's a Honda Zoomer or an Harley MT350,

Too many bikes not owned by me! Damn this unemployment! Anyone got a job for an experienced IT SM?
