Hello. I'm new here and I hope I'm putting this in the correct place. First of all, some background to help you to help me: I...: - am 33 years old - am 1,85 m (6'1") tall - had experience with a Suzuki GSR600 (first bike) for 1 year - want luggage space - want a multi task bike (75% road / 25% dirt) - am planning a 10000 km (6213 miles) trip - made a (not so) short list: - BMW R1200GS (Adventure??) - Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere - Honda VFR 1200 CrossTourer - KTM 1190 Adventure - Triumph Tiger. My initial preference was with the BMW. After all, half of the world shouldn't be wrong. But when I start reading some reviews, I realized that the conclusion wasn't so straight. And that longitudinal boxer engine always makes some confusion to me. Doesn't the bike twists with the torque? In the other the GS is much lighter than all the others, which is a big advantage for off-road use. The Super Tenere is my 2nd choice. I like it very much but it is a lot heavier. What's the opinion of you guys, who own one of these? I'm planning to make a test ride, of course, but I would like to ear some experts. Thank you.
