I have looked at the 2013 fjr (handle bar risers?), honda st (where to try and buy???), bmw 1200 rt (nice low seat, but how reliable is the shaft drive and isn't a new one coming out?). Am I missing some other option?

Clearly, still at research stage, so I'd love some input, suggestions, experiences.
You won't see a new BMW RT for about 18 months in the states, maybe 12 months, but the plan is for the GS to test the waters before changing the line up. BMW has finally solved the rear end issues, now they have fuel pump controller issues, it is always something when you push technology far to fast.

You can look at a Moto Guzzi Norge and a Kawasaki Concours C14 as they are both Sport Touring as well. Both of those bikes are built proof.
