I'm going to vote for the tiger xc in this case. It sounds like it'll handle what you want to do off road just fine, and it'll certainly do highway work in relative comfort. Definately other bikes that'll work, bmw F650/800's are obviously in that mix and I've not ridden the tiger but I've read quite a bit and done the pathetic sit test lol. I'd sure like to have one....
