I'm trying to figure out my next ride. So far I've narrowed it down to: NC750X, CB500X, V-strom 650, and maybe on the outside the BMW 310GS, if it can go fast enough to be safe. I started out with a whole lot of criteria and just cut it down according to HP, fuel economy, etc., until I hit this list. Basically I want a big fuel tank, high gas mileage, and an upright ride position. I'll be chewing through 70+ miles of highway a day for commute (30-35 each way). The DCT honda isn't out of the question, lots of stop and go traffic. Mostly I just wanted to have to fill up 1 time a week, instead of literally every day, so it's around 300-350 miles per tank. Some of my favorite rides have been light adventure style, they just seem to be able to cruise safely while also being able to take some luggage etc. But they're all so similar I'm having a hard time figuring it out. Been riding for 6-7 years, but I'm about to move 20 miles further from work so my trip will change. Right now I've been rocking along on a little Super Cub because they're stupid fun, but I've ridden everything from a CB1100 down to a, well, the cub is the most laid back bike I've had. In between were some NC, a CB, a bonneville, and a ducati 400 scrambler - which I liked, but the premium gas, tiny gas tank, and shockingly bad MPG, meant it had to go. Plus I could get it up to 60 if I flogged it, and my Super cub does 50-55 on regular at like 500 miles to a gallon. I'm mostly debating the V-strom or the NC. I don't really ride for pleasure. My ideal saturday is chilling at home, not cutting curves. It's just that when I run errands and work, I like to do it on a bike. So super sporty isn't important, just enough power to be safe on these North Texas roads. I'll be trading in the Cub, so new/dealer is pretty much my option, and the Hondas are impossible to find used (hard to find new even). Plenty of 700s, but I'd prefer the redesigned 750. Vstrom 650 comes with standard ABS and is easier to find used.
