I want a bike that is highway capable and comfortable for a 100 mile trip. Yes there are town dirt roads, hardpan not trail. I like upright but appreciate performance. I do want to be able to attach saddlebags to carry gear (camera, emergency kit and rain/weather gear). Won’t be camping from bike. Won’t be doing track days either. Still recommend SV?
I also have same sort of question on Kawasaki (650R vs. Versys). Am also curious about Honda Sport Tourer (Interceptor-maybe with ABS this year?). Or BMW 800s. All as second bike. Comments?
