Thanks farmerboy. My FJ is fun to ride, but it's lacking long ride comfort for me, most evident in the weather protection sorting out the suspension is tough, especially coming from a 1200GS.
From reading reviews and posts, i don't hear a lot of negatives regarding the suspension of either the 650 or 1000. I hope to get to ride one here real soon.
I'm in SATX also Arion.
