This subject has frequently been discussed. The 650 Strom will do the long cross country trips without problem. I was out in western MT last year at the AdvRider Rally in Darby. I'm 200# in my riding gear and I carry 80-100# of gear when I'm on the road.

My bike is now for sale if you're looking for a 650 that is very well set up and can do what you say you want to do. Check it out in the For Sale area, probably about Page 8 or 10 by now. It'll be the best $6K you ever spent.
