Lookin at buying a 05 FZ6

OK so here's my story. My current lineup of bikes is a 2007 GSXR1000, 14 KTM RC8r 1190, & a Honda CRF250L. I was/am totally happy with that lineup and was not interested at all in (well I'm always interested in adding bikes to the garage but...you know) adding any bikes to my garage...until my buddy offered me his 2000 SuperHawk for reeeeaaaaally cheap. Kind of a dumb not to do it kind of thing. Well I started looking into other bikes in the naked sport category and the FZ6 really caught my eye. I checked with a dealer that has an 05 and they offered me $500 more than what I'm paying for the bike that my buddy has for trade (& I don't even own the bike yet, haha). So as far as I'm concerned, it's win/win/win here. My buddy gets rid of his bike, I make some good money on it and get what I really want, & the dealer makes a sale! What brings me here is my question of what I'm looking for from the FZ. What I want, since I already have my sportbikes for aggressive type riding, I'm looking for something that will sit more upright and something that my wife will actually be comfy on as a passenger. Not that she likes going riding with me and not that I like taking her most of the time but it'd be nice to get out together from time to time. I thought about adding a top case with a back rest too for more comfort for her. I want a bike that'll get up and go & still be fun, but be more comfy for both her and I & maybe do a little traveling on it as well. My budget is quite small for this so FZ1 & the newer FZ's are out of the question. So, current owners of the FZ6, will this bike do what I'm looking for?
