What part of BEING REAR ENDED AT A STOP or RETARD TURNS LEFT AND HITS ME MID-INTERSECTION sounds like "bike too heavy"?
Also we're talking six years and at least ~50k miles of riding here on these three FJRs I've owned out of 15 years of riding.
Easy there, Aran : I was simply making a statement that perhaps in all the riding you were doing with those FJR's you might have grown less able to truly ride that heavy a bike. Whether you can or cannot would be your determination, not us out here. If you are confident enough to move out of harms way due to your skill[s] then the FJR is still for you. If not, then something different might offer you more "luck" not to get into another fray.
I don't know your skill level, nor your riding habits. You know that and perhaps your riding friends too. Bad things happen all the time to good/great "seasoned" riders. Please don't take my comment ^^^up there^^^ wrong...I simply was asking you if maybe the bike was too much for you, that's all. Better Days Ahead -- YMMV
