The ST1300 is a great bike. I know a couple people with them. They are more on the touring side than the FJ which is more sporty. I do like the ST1300 lots. The weight may be a downside for some, but if doing many freeway miles, that weight will come in handy. The weight will help hold a line better than a light bike in the wind, or blasts of wind from passing vehicles. Spencer seats I believe specializes in the ST's as well if he were looking at a better seat.
