Another vote for the R1200 rs. The Tiger 800 and FJ09 are not in this league. The Tiger 800 engine is a big let down after the Street T 675. The K1300s is a great choice too.

For my use the Tiger all the way. HS is cool but to motard for me. FJ is a budget bike with no off-road ability. It is a good bike for BIG people.

Great bike once I can get past the ugly tank and side profile. Tiger is so much better looking than this ugly ducking. Makes the Vstrom a stunner.
