Umm.... You don't have to take an S10 off road.
Personally I prefer this style of bike for touring over proper tourers. They fit me better and I find them more comfortable.

This AT doesn't have to be a 1000cc + for my personal preference, anywhere between 700 and 1000cc I could live with.
Also my S10 does 53 MPG on average and that's a 1200.

It does work great. Soak a rag in very hot water and just hold it against the sticker for a few seconds, peels off easy as.
