I have been riding my Kawasaki Vulcan S since I took the MSF and started riding a year ago, and had a blast touring all over my state during quarantine last spring and summer. Now that it's warming up I'm getting back out for the season and I'm wanting to upgrade to a more substantial machine that has more long-distance comfort and weight and stability for passing semis on the freeway, along with some creature comforts like wind protection and cases for storing my helmet and gear when I reach my destination and park the bike. I also want something that is well suited for two-up riding so I can take the girlfriend out with me, and I want it to be comfortable enough for her that she wants to ride with me again. I should be able to sell my Vulcan for about $4000, so I'd like to find a bike in that price range. I've been looking at late 2000s Kawasaki Concours 14s and Honda ST1300s and have found some great deals in my price range within a few hours drive. I was also interested in the Yamaha FJR1300, but when I went to a nearby dealer to sit on all 3 bikes, the FJR was easily the most uncomfortable and ill-fitting bike I've ever sat on and I could tell within 15 seconds that I'd never be able to ride one. The Connie and ST were comfy, with the ST slightly more comfortable. Does anyone have experience with these two bikes?
