I think a ST1100 /1300 would be up your street, just not $-wise.
But you do have a point. There's a whole load of techie-stuff on these bikes "just because it can". Most of it doesn't add to the riding experience.
The problem is, they tried it in the 90's with the 1500 Interstate as a stripped down version. Only lasted a few years (91-96 i believe).
Just the way the market works.
If it ain\'t broke, don\'t fix it !!!.
