Things may have changed since, but I had a 2005 FJR1300. The handlebar put my hands at a slightly odd angle, causing discomfort on rides of any distance over 25 miles. Also it's a bit wider, which for me forced my knees at an uncomfortable angle. (I like keeping my feet parallel with the bike) The FJR is a great machine with power to spare, a real mile-eater, good suspension and great aerodynamics with the right screen. (to prevent head buffeting) After crashing it, I replaced it with an '07 FZ6. Also a great mile-eater. But truth be told, I was more comfortable on the FZ6 and now the DL650.
Ride one before you shell out the coins. I've never ridden the Triumph so I can't offer any information there.
And I definitely understand. I've had four spine surgeries. C-5, C-6, & C-7 are fused in the neck. Both arms are prone to go numb and tingly in seconds unless I keep everything in just the right position. Good luck finding a solution or better fit.
If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.
