All depends on your style of touring. I tour on my CBR 1100XX, my ST1300 and my Goldwing.
Do you want to stop and see a lot of things. Do you like to stop and look at shops, roadside historical sites, etc, etc. If so then get a comfortable seat, put some removable bags on it and an automatic chain oiler and go. It is perfectly suited for touring near and far. Seen some video of people going up through Alaska. Do you want to tour the back roads and gravel roads or fire roads out west? This is a very good bike for that.
Do you want to tour and just go and go? Do you have a passenger to take with you? Do you want to pound the miles out on paved roads? Shaft drive is nice for that. Bigger heavier bikes are too.
I would just start going a little further afield around your place and see for yourself. Many a person loads them up and goes and sees the world on it. It's really personal preference.
I have 5 motorcycles and speak from experience on the following!!! Having two means twice the maintenance, twice the insurance, twice the registration fees, twice the farkles to buy...
