    So i've decided i want something else, i love my F650GS Dakar, but i want something more capable on the highway.
    Still not sure if i want to go with a big tourrer or an adventure tourrer.

    Been looking at bikes like ST1300 from Honda or Gen 1 / 2 Super Tenere.
    Problem is - both are not new and beside youtube and owners stories, i did not ride any of them.

    Any ideas how to get access to any of these models? a used bike dealership or something?
    Is there a Toro like app for bikes?

    Thanks in advance

    Ron.

    Thank you.
    Not much of a offering around our area, but might do a weekend in FL to check out a couple of bikes.

    The Kawasaki demo trailer is coming to the dealer in Unionville, VA on Memorial Day weekend. Might be something there worth trying.
