You might look into a BMW R 1200 RT, my buddie has had one for a number of years, did a six week trip around the country a couple of years ago (8,000 mi). He's a bigger guy and the thing is plenty roomy for him and his girl friend. It's all day comfortable, good wind protection, ridiculous range, I think the thing has an almost eight gallon tank! Heated grips and seat, and handles remarkably well in the twisties. It's just a thought, it ain't no VFR, but it's no slouch either, and you won't look like your touring on a two wheeled Barkaloungerlayful: I mean, if your into the Barkalounger thing,,,,,,,,,well, to each their own.
