I have an 02 FJR, and an 04 Wee-Strom.
The Wee is a very comfortable bike, and I think it would suit your needs. I have fitted a Givi tall screen to my Wee, and it has reduced the buffeting considerably, then again, the FJR has the same problem with buffeting.
As for power, you will find yourself riding much faster on the back roads, but the Wee is no high speed tourer, it will do it, but after riding an FJR, the Wee will feel like its being hurried along, if you know what I mean.
At the moment, I use the Wee for commuting, and the FJR, for touring, I was considering selling the FJR, as the Wee would do both, but I would miss the rush of that in-line four, that can dialled up when long trips get boring.
Have you thought about a DL1000?
