Tom, I haven't test ridden any bikes yet but here is the list, and the list is not in any particular order;
K1600GTL, Triumph Trophy, Kawasaki Nomad or the Voyager, Victory Cross Country and for the FIRTS time EVER, I have looked ONLINE at the HD Ultra-Classic.
The GLT has all of the features that I want, from the adaptive headlights to the built-in GPS, but you are looking at a $ 26,000 price tag on a bike that lacks the rider/engine protection that the LT has; I have never owned a Triumph and I doubt that I ever will, had a 2000 Nomad before I bought the LT (put 45K on the clock prior to the LT), great bike but not good for cross-country, their new bikes have a 6-speed tranny, a larger fuel tank, cruise control and top loading panniers.
The Ultra well......is just a Harley, yes they have a much much better dealer support system but the LT never left me stranded. To me Harley's have no soul, and in my mind they are just plain-Jane motorcycles.
I HAVE given some thought to the FJR (too tall) and the Connie.
I am giving myself the rest of this year and early next before I make a decision as to what I want to buy.
I am also on the K1600 Forum seeing what is being said about the GTL's
