Not going to review each of the bikes I tried as that would be a wall of text that you don't want to read and I really don't want to write but will instead give a very brief impression of each. If anyone has any specific questions about any of the bikes I will happily elaborate.
BMW R1200R. Everything you need and a bit more.
KTM 1290 Super Duke GT. Powerful, great handling, tall with a coarse motor.
Indian Scout with touring accessories/Scout Bobber. A tale of two bikes. The green touring bike shifted badly, handled poorly and brakes were so-so, it was comfy though. The black Bobber was fun, handled better and the clutch/shifter more responsive. I think the green Scout may have had some issues.
BMW RnineT Racer. Raucous, punchy and extremely uncomfortable at slow speeds or in group rides.
Aprillia Shiver 900. Potent, usable power with sweet handling.
BMW S1000XR. Get speeding tickets in supreme comfort, sublime handling and unending power.
Moto Guzzi V9 Roamer. Slow, right-lurching motor and uncertain handling but charming and enjoyable to ride.
Yamaha XSR 700. Spunky, fun with middling handling and suspension.
Suzuki GSX-S 1000. Powerful and well sorted, shifting is optional.
Honda CB 1100 EX. Drop-dead gorgeous, well mannered and is rock solid at 95 mph on the interstate.
BMW R1200RS. Would be a sweet ride if the R1200R didn't exist.
Honda GoldWing DCT. Bonus remarks, I didn't ride but my friend John stated, "I could ride this bike across the country... happily".
I really loved the R1200R and lusted the S1000XR, both amazing bikes in different ways. You could really notice the average suspension and handling differences when riding the Yamaha XSR bikes compared to the BMW's, Aprillia, Suzuki or KTM's that we tried.
