Well, now there's a suggested bike that makes more sense than a CBR 954 (which might be fun to ride but it does not fit any criteria for a sport tourer). The Goldwing (new version). Rode one, and it handles like a sportbike but it will take you almost anywhere (not offroad) in comfort and protect you from the elements. Plenty of power. Plus great two up riding. I have to say I am a convert for that bike. We have a fella in our sportbike club who rides one of them with the sportbikers regularly. And you can program the LCD to greet you by name when you put the key in the ignition.
