Might buy a TV

I have been looking for a new cycle to add to my stable. I currently own a '07 Bonnie/Thruxton, a '71 Triumph T100R Daytona and a '74 Kawasaki G3ss. I have been looking for a true SPORT-touring bike for a while. Originally, I was looking at the BMW F800GS, Triumph Tiger XRx, and the Yamaha FJ09, then I saw a the TV.

My big concerns center around reliability. I currently average 6-8K miles of commuting and aggressive back road riding per year. With the new bike I'm hoping add an additional 3-4K of long distance touring per year.

Additionally, I am trying to decide if the Lusso is a worthwhile upgrade. I like the idea of EAS but being 230lbs I have never had a bike that didn't require some suspension tweaks. Will I need it on this bike. I know the FJ09 needs work. Are the bags nice or am I better off going aftermarket.

While I haven't ridden the TV, I do have a test ride scheduled in the near future (as soon as the roads clear up). I have ridden the others and they are nice.

Thanks Jon
