    So after a few fun days of riding everything on my list I have narrowed it down to 2 rather different bikes.

    The FJR1300 and CBF1000, anyone have any final comments on either of these that may sway me one way or the other.
    The FJR is more comfortable (not that the CBF isn't) and is definitely the bike I would rather walk out and look at each morning, but it is rather on the large side.
    The CBF is more nimble and probably more practical but is kinda boring.

    The VFR800 was good but the maintenance side of things does worry me especially as I'd like to be able to do it myself, pillion comfort is also not fantastic.
    Bandit/GSX1200FA is also a good bike but I found the CBF1000 to be very similar but overall a better package.
    Triumph Sprints are a little more sport than tourer as is the 1100 Blackbird.

    She could get her own bike
    Note: this may not be the universe where the above is relevant.

    Given I tend to be a Honda guy and like something a bit sporty I'd probably go more for the CB but it sounds to me like you'd be more suited to the FJR for what your wanting to use it for

    For those of you playing at home, I bought an FJR1300 today.
    Will post pics when I have her looking shiny.
