Hey there, new to the site. I'm looking for suggestions on which AT to purchase, so I'll give you some info to help understand my situation. BACKGROUND Plan on using the bike mainly for commuting purposes (may do some AT with it in the future). I live in Southern California and commute 70 miles each way, which is 99% highway. I'm 6'6'', 300 lbs, pretty much 50/50 torso/legs. I used to ride a GSX-R 750 about 6 years ago, but haven't ridden street since. Still an avid off-road rider. I'm taking another MSF course next week to re-familiarize my self again first, then will go out and test ride some bikes. I've got about $13K to spend on the bike (already purchased my gear). BIKES I desire to buy new. I'm contemplating either a BMW F800GS, Triumph Tiger 800XC, or Yamaha Super Tenere. I'm not afraid of maintenance (have experience and used to work at a bike shop), but from everything I've read so far the Yamaha requires the least amount of maintenance. I found a new 2012 ST at my local dealer for $11,500 and I can get an additional discount on it for being prior military. I've also heard great things about the BMW (which also gives a discount for military), and great things about the 800XC. I've read about the shaft driven ST vs chain driven with the others, but not sure that alone makes the decision for me. MPG, comfort (I may also have my wife ride on the back occasionally), holding its value, and potential for maintenance issues are important to me. SUGGESTIONS What do you suggest based upon my needs/wants and my size? I plan on test riding all three, just looking for additional input. Thanks!
