This is a bike I'm sort of considering for a future purchase. I'm coming from a 99' VFR800(owned a 96' 750 too) and would like something different on the next go around. I like the idea of the low maintence shaft drive, and the benefit of the anti-dive front end(especially for 2up riding). I'm wondering how the ergo's compare as I'd like something that is equally or more so comfy as my VFR was, it had heli-bars and a sargent seat with an ST windscreen and overall was a comfy solo ride that would make do for 2up riding. I hope with perhaps similiar changes and the addition of a trunk or backrest the R1100s would be a slight improvement, and the additional low end grunt I'd expect from the boxer would be nice, I would have gladly traded a little of the upper rpm power of the vfr for a little low end for my 2up travels. Any input one way or the other would be great, thanks!
