The other thing is, I want something that doesn't look so much like a dirt bike if that makes sense. Something that I can out the hard cases on and not be odd. I am going to look at the Sherpa on Monday if they have one at the shop. I have to haul the hubby's bike over to get serviced for when he comes home. Thanks for the sugesstions!
If you're in Atlanta looking at BMWs
... take a look at the G650 XCountry. I think it's 40-50 lbs lighter than a GS. Makes a huge
difference, at least to me. And the 2009s are quite a bit lower than the 07-08 models, FYI.
But smaller is
better to start. I started on a Yamaha XT 225.
