I've owned 3 FJRs and a 2007 Wing. My inseam is a short 30" and that's an issue with just about every bike. First FJR was a 2005 Gen I, then I went with the Wing. Had a blast riding it like a banshee, had titanium pucks on it just so you can drag the crap out of the pegs. I ride with officers, so we're aggressive by nature when it comes to the twisties. Even led the sport group at the dealer group rides with my Wing and they had trouble keeping up, you'd be surprised what you can do with a Wing and that's when I was taking it way easy for the group ride. I did have issues with dropping a few times, mainly at extremely low speeds and sharp turns which I had issues with. Once you get going it's fine, but at the extremely low speeds and when standing still you will feel all of the 925+lbs you carry with a Wing.
Second FJR came after the Wing (which I did 18K miles with in one year), which was the 2013 Gen III. Had it for a couple of years and ended up selling it right before buying a house. One of the reasons I ended up selling it was to try and find a bike that I can flat-foot, for safety reasons. When I had my Wing I did a sharp left turn and stuck my foot out (out of instinct), and it got stuck, doubled over and that's the most pain I've ever felt in my foot. It's never really healed right and hurts at times. With the '13 FJR I had issues with having to be on my toes and that was extremely uncomfortable while standing still and having to fight strong winds here in the open land of Texas.
So I set off to get a bike I could flat-foot. Tried the Honda CTX1300 and OMG, that is such a freaky bike to ride. I don't know what Honda was thinking with that bike, but I fully understand why it was only made for one year (2014) and why they are trying to sell new ones for half the original price - not for me. So I looked at the Wing again, same issues as before; the F6B, which has a wider seat and is actually more uncomfortable while being only 50 lbs less than the Wing; and then the 2014 Valkyrie F6C, which I can flat-foot and is 150lbs less than the Wing. OMG that is an incredible bike to ride, just a blast a minute. Gobbs of power with a low center of weight, same engine/power/torque as the Wing but super-light compared to the Wing itself. Was in love with the Valkyrie, had a deal to buy one, then started trying to figure out how I could make the trips that I do with my club to Deals Gap, to Mount Rushmore, to Pikes Peak, etc...
What I finally figured out is that there's almost no aftermarket for the Valkyrie - they stopped making that as well, it's only made for 2014 & 2015. No one is going to really develop a market for it. And then the reality that this is really a cruiser and will never travel like a touring bike will. I'm used to a Topbox, hard saddlebags, storage, ways to mount CB, GPS, charging devices on the go, and then not to mention the lack of real wind protection. I finally just realized the Valkyrie would be great as a 2nd bike but not what I really need now. What I would honestly be left with is a bunch of cruisers and I didn't want to go back to that - I had a Honda VTX1300C and loved it back then, but I like touring bikes too much for their power and versatility.
Ended up going back and bought a 2008 FJR Gen II which I have now. It came with a Corbin seat that actually has lowered the height significantly, to the point that I can almost flat-foot it. I have to say that I feel like I made the right decision going back to the FJR. I don't find the top-heavy being an issue as long as I can near flat-foot it. I dropped my 2005 FJR once and it landed on my Go-Pro and broke the housing, but that's pretty much it. I dropped the Wing more and that's just due to not having a good grip on it and me being inseam-challenged. I love the Wing for what it is, but I doubt I'll go back to it.
I don't know if any of this will help you with your evaluation, but I did happen to own both bikes and thought this might give you an insight. I struggled with what I was going to get next after selling my 2013 FJR and I'm surprised I went back, but for me the Corbin seat made a lot of difference.
