First, hello, I'm new to this forum. Second, I'm not an "adventure rider", I'm actually a sprint rider (short trips). I grew up on dirt bikes (amateur MX) and graduated to road racing bikes (amateur roadracer). However, as I've aged, my wife and I would like to do some weekend rides, and the Daytona isn't what my wife thinks of as comfy. She did ride the Interceptor, and enjoyed it, but she's kinda tall (5'8"+), with long legs, and the leg room (or lack there of) made her legs hurt after more than an hour or so in the saddle. So, in the search for a bike that she will enjoy sitting on first and foremost, and that I'll enjoy riding, I found this forum. Now, to the point: I have been looking at various second bikes, for our longer trips, and have several we've been considering: 1. Triumph Thunderbird Storm (with comfy seat). 2. Triumph Sprint GT (with comfy seat) [since the ST is no longer sold in the US]. 3. Ducati Diavel Carbon Red (with comfy seat). 4. Triumph Tiger 1050 (with comfy seat). 5. Ducati Multistrada S Touring (with comfy seat). 6. Forthcoming rumored Aprilia Tuareg 1200. 7. Forthcoming Motus MST. 8. etc. It is much of this research that kept bringing me to this site, so thought I'd finally join instead of lurking, and get opinions directly from the members. I need a bike that handles, and would like to keep it +/- 500 lbs. I would also like 100+BHP at the rear wheel. I'd like something different than an ST, basically because it would not be as good as my Daytona, but I would want to ride it that way, so I'd prefer something different. I want all that, and a comfy seat for her, plus lots of leg room for her too... Not asking too much am I? At this point the Multistrada is in the lead, but frankly it's ugly (if they'd just get rid of that duckbill snorkel on the front), and really tall, I'm only 5'9"+ with a 30" inseam... Anywho, there you go, have at it!
