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.
indeed. my wife and I plus our camping gear rode all around the west up at elevation (ie less power) on gen 1 650 with no issues.
