I've been looking more at sport-touring bikes for my next motorcycle, or maybe an adventure/tourer.
The BMW 1600 and the FJR as well are pretty heavy. I'd want something a bit lighter and more sporty.
You might try the BMW R1200RT. Having had one I believe they are hard to beat. They are pricey and scheduled maintenance can be high.
The Kawasaki Concours is also great and the new Triumph Trophy has received great reviews.
You also mentioned an adventure tourer.
The BMW R1200 GS is the one to have. It's can easily be set up for long distance touring. You have to have long legs though since it sits pretty high.
Go have fun riding all of them.
I switched to a XCT because I'm 75 and legs were getting numb in the foot position required on all the ones I mentioned.
Hard to beat the long floorboards on the XCT or Vision.
2012 Victory XCT
2009 Suzuki650 V-Strom

1992 BMW K 75
This is a pretty cool short review of the 3 majors (Councourse 14, FJR1300 and BMW 1300GT). Looks like scootin' around on these is pretty effortless and fun. The BMW keeps winning every year it seems, and I guess for the money, it better! It's just so freakin' ugly...
Has no one given any consideration to the Honda st1300? I had one for a while and it was quick ( not as quick as the fjr or Concourse), huge tank, great handling, very quiet if you like that sort of thing. These things are practically unbreakable. They haven't been putting them in the compares lately because they have not changed in about 9 or 10 years.
Just throwing out another possibility
