In the running is a V-Strom, the Tenere or the F800GT or maybe another suggestion. I have seen many a V-Strom out there but looking at the Tenere is new for me. I am not interested in too much off road and it has to have the ability to have highway pegs installed. (Broke my right leg and I have to straighten it out on long rides). So to those who own or have owned what is your take on it? (I did read a few posts involving discussion on vibrations and not having a good out come.)
BTW, new to the site, howdy all :)
if your off road requirements are minimal the new fjr1300 is awesome, but can you get highway pegs??
but of the three you mention my ownership bias says xt1200z
the strom has a great motor, the bmw's a capable bike from what i've heard
but the 45000km on mine say i didnt make a bad choice ranging from commuting to bouncing the big girl down and up 4wd tracks
