  • Is the 796 worth it? YES I am coming from a cb550 so I was thinking I did not want to jump to something so insanely fast. the 796 seemed a good fit for that bill
  • How is the fuel mileage?
  • Is there an alternative to those mirrors... YES, but I like my OEM ones.
*edit*
by the way, the other bike I am eyeing buying is the new tiger XC. Would that suit my 60 mile commute to work, want to leave the road a little, and single/two-up touring dreams better?
With your "requirements", I'd say the Triumph Tiger would be a better option.
I love my Hypermotard (1100S), but it really isn't the most practical bike around. Not why I bought it, so I'm definitely NOT disappointed.
