1200GS or Super Tenere There's not much you CAN'T do with those bikes other than real offroading. I like to take long rides sometimes, and while it can be done on a single cylinder bike, it's just not fun. A GS is fun to rip down a back road, hit a dirt road and then slab back home in comfort or load it up with luggage and ride for days. Not many other bikes can do that. If you're the type of guy that rarely ventures out of the county you live in, there's better choices for sure.
