My better half and I am thinking about getting F700gs for our weekend getaway & a week summer vacation. Conditions: - Me: 5 ft 7 (=175cm) / 159lbs (=72kg) - My wife: 5 ft 5 (=167cm) / 114lbs (=51kg) - F700gs with BMW Aluminum Panniers & Top Case with maximum 33-44lbs (=15-20kg) of camping gears - The top cruising speed we wish: 75 mile/h (=120km/h) => Without much of stress on a bike and hassle on me - Driving condition: Tarmac 80 / Formed dirt roads 20 to find a camping site Note: - I do not intend to go serious off-road but I might want to use this bike for transcontinental trips of North America and Europe in the near future. I’ve read many threads about F800gs for two-up but F700gs should be different. (Maybe more similar to F650 twin?) A dealer recommends me R1200gs for 2-up, but considering our physical sizes, I think F700gs would handle my requirements. What do you guys think? Go with F700gs? Or R1200gs is worthy investment to make? Also, I plan to have 10-15 minutes break after two hours of riding. (Should I take a break after one hour?) I want to hear more about your thoughts, opinions, advice and experience etc. If you have good seat recommendations (Airhawk?) please inform me. Thank you very much!
