Im right there with you. I own a Harley. Always thought I wanted the BMW. After reading a lot I decided on the FJR. Loved how it rode but the seat killed my 64 yo butt. Got a Russel day long. Havnt took it for a long ride but after 2 hrs still no pain. The stock got to me after 10 miles. I love the handling of the FJR. Love the fact that you can adjust the windshield. I guess you could say I love every thing about it. Im sure you will too.
