Consider the Suzuki GS500f. I just traded mine in for a V Strom 1000 after 5 years of riding. The low seat and upright riding position is favorable for short legs and long rides. I took mine on a 2100 mile loop to Canada last year and was extremely pleased with the performance. Many of those miles were off road too.
