Three of us each rode Windsor Touring bikes ($599 delivered) on the Trans America and a few other longish tours. It is as far as I can tell a rebadged Fuji Touring. We were all pretty happy with them. So I feel like I can readily recommend the Fuji (or the Windsor Touring).To the OP:
"Windsor" is a house brand of Bikes Direct, a company that sells bikes mail-order. Their prices can be very attractive and the bikes are generally well equipped for the money BUT the term "some assembly required" definitely applies. You will hear a wide variety of experiences from customers varying from:
"Assembly was very easy, everything worked well right from the start and I'm very pleased".
"Assembly was a nightmare, nothing came adjusted properly, parts were missing and the wheels required complete retensioning and truing".
The upshot of this is that if you buy from Bikes Direct you should either be a reasonably competent bike mechanic or plan to use some of your cost savings to have an LBS properly assemble and adjust the bike before you ride it.
