heres the deal: im getting married at the end of may and for my honeymoon my wife and i will travel throught the northwest. in doing so we will be carrying a motorcycle on a carrier with us. if my wife and i combined are a little less than 300 lbs. what will be powerful enough to carry us? this bike will mostly be ridden on the road but with dirt roads and smooth trails to explore, nothing crazy. here are my concerns: -i am 5'8, she is 5'3; so we need a bike that isnt to high to sit on comfortable. around 33' tops. the xl650l is too high at 37 inches. unless there is a very inexpensive way to lower the seat heighth. -i would prefer to spend less than 2000 total (w/adding new tires). is that possible? -i obviously want a durable bike that if something happens to go wrong isnt super expensive to work on. i here the hondas are bullet proof, and i am not sure about the others (kawasaki, suzuki, yamaha). considering the price we are looking at bikes made in the 90's probably. any suggestion on makes, models and years? thanks for the help.
