Hi Ladies, I would really like your opinion I am looking to get a new bike in about 6 months. I like to do my research and make sure I am making the right choice for me. I currently ride a Yamaha V Star 950 Tourer which I love but it is now 5 years old and time to move up. Any way I was originally looking at 3 bikes from the super sport touring class. The first one was the Honda STS 1300. But at a 19,000 sticker price I would like a lot more in my bike than just ABS. The next two are the ones I have to choose from the first is the Kawasaki concourse 14. And the second is the Yamaha FJR 1300. I live in Orlando, Florida so I ride year round and my bike is my primary transportation. I even travel on my bike so it has to be comfortable for the long haul as it seems both bike are just looking for another opinion. I am a recent listener and am only on episode 7 but I do agree with a lot of what you say even being a guy. keep up the great show look forward to hearing the next episode keep the shiny side up.
