I have owned about 30 bikes in the last 5 years, and the FJR1300 rates up with the best of them. It is a superior all rounder when compared to the likes of the BMW1200GT (probably its closer competitor) because of the handling. There are also some doubts about the BMW build quality lately which I would verify after owning a 1200GS for a year.
The FJR1300 ticks all the touring boxes, with exceptional kit as standard, hard luggage, heated grips, ABS, adjustable screen and adjustable suspension without any tools.
I own the auto version because even though it has had mixed reviews i have found it to be exceptionally reliable and great in traffic as you arent constantly searching for neutral or getting clutch pump in the left hand.
Build quality is very high, and there is nice attention to detail as well as very nice paint, especially if you are used to suzuki and their paper thin paint jobs.
If you remove the panniers, put the screen down, set the suspension to firm, this bike will keep up with anything on the road and in the right hands surprise even the fireblade and R1 riders. Then you can return home, adjust it back and easily travel across europe in comfort.
12 grand well spent and a much better modern option than the bloated and somewhat shaky pan european.
