Well I have been lacking in the sport touring bike for some time. I tried a few and I guess because the are a little older I was not happy with them. Now to put this in prospective, I live fast metric bikes but not to lean over too much. Had a 03 ZRX1200R and a 05 ZX1400 set up for touring. I was looking at a FRJ1300 but most people say it is a great ride but a pig. If I get the 07 though I will thin the older herd out to non I think. Current stable: XJ700X FJ1200 Madura 1200 KLR650 Any thoughts on those that have owned or ridden the 1250s?
