My only concern is the seat height (I'm 5 11... but a 29" inseam)... and the price.
If the multistrada doesn't work out... for some reason I have fallen for the Husqy Nuda 900 R... (probably because they sound so freakin cool)... but you can't get 'em in the US so...
S10 as a second choice? That would be like dating the "normal" looking sister of a super model (compared to the MTS I mean).
How about the new KTM 1190? 150HP, great on or off road, and should arrive here in the US this fall.
Current: 2012 Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX, 2008 Yamaha WR250R
Gone: Ducati Multistrada, Moto Guzzi Norge, BMW R1200GS, BMW F650 GS Dakar, KTM 520 EXC, Suzuki DRZ400E, and the list goes on.......
