I also was considering a fjr as my next bike but decided on another Tenere.  The overall seating position is so rider friendly on the tenere.

I traded my 2011 FJR with 72k miles for a new left over 2017 ST. The FJR was a super bike and I enjoyed owning it. In comparison, I feel the FJR has a more powerful and smoother engine along with stronger brakes. And even in an engine comparison, I find the ST engine to be a neat setup and plenty powerful but it is truly a different approach in design. The ST is far more comfortable and, for me, enjoyable to ride. For example, the ST is easier to do Uturns, ride over a curb, and yet while cruising at high speeds is darn smooth. Throw in better dirt road capability, for me the ST is a road bike, and I'm really glad I made the switch.

Several form members have voiced concern about the continued existence of the Tenere.  I've been thinking that with so many of us switching from the FJR, maybe we should concerned with the FJR's continued existence.  Honda dropped the ST1300, and it was a great bike.  (not as good as the FJR though)  More SUVs are sold than sports cars; and the Tenere is definitely an SUV.  ::001::
