You need to buy all three and report back…

Seriously? I prefer the KTM Adventure 1290 or the Tiger Explorer, but that is another category... $$$

I prefer Honda GoldWing or BMW K1600 but that is definitely another category... Unfortunately, guys on Triumphs and KTMs can not afford bikes I prefer

Those three are on my list. Think the HyperStrada is a bit small for multi day trips. Ride the and decide.

Of the three, I've only ridden the Tiger 800 (previous gen) and really liked it. That motor is a friggin peach. That said, I really dig the FJ and the reviews are great, so it's probably the one I'd go for. Can't go wrong, really.

Triumph all the way. Less power but you can do more. Even with alloys that'll handle a fire road with ease.

Looking at switching from Tenere to FJ 09. Lighter, more power. Nice ergos too.

If you don't do any off road I'd go Fj. But ride them all

FJ-09. Best price. Perhaps best quality, reliability, lower cost of running it, low maintenance and much larger dealership network.

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.

ive ridden the current tiger and the FZ-09. The FZ beats the tiger hands down for performance and fun factor. Plus the FJ will be much cheaper than the new tiger. The hyperstrada is something else. Its a short braaaaaaap hooligan machine, much like the Fz :)
