Life after Strom...

In a recent high speed wobble incident, my beloved Strom became a total loss. I walked away, thanks to the 'Stich.

Now, what do I go to? It's a great time to be a motorcycle enthusiast. I'm torn between a Super Tenere and a Triumph Explorer. The electronics of the Yammy seem to be a cut above, but the power of the Trumpet sounds intoxicating. Plus, triples sound awesome. Like sex on wheels. I need to find some demo rides; I may end up on a Guzzi, who knows?

My question is this: where does a 90/10% DL1000 rider go? I like that the Yammy is better in the dirt, but I also like that the Triumph is better on the road.

Every time I see a GL1800 or a GSA I think, what a good idea! Conc 14 seems to fall between these two.

All I know is it's got to be shaft drive. Otherwise, I'm lost. I've considered the Stelvio NTX, the GSA, HP2, Super Tenere, Explorer,VFR1200, GL1800... I feel a little lost. I'm just looking for a little perspective.
