Hi everyone, Short story: I had a work accident in 2012 and had my vf 750 c put on grass. Fought myself out of a wheelchair for 6 years and today I can go short walks. My knees, shoulders and back are injured, so I have to stop thinking about driving my heavy Honda around the world. I was at my local dealer to sell my Honda and figured it was over with adventure on a motorcycle. But he suggested after a long talk, a test drive on a BMW f650gs. After a very long ride on it through different surfaces I was sold. Much better driving position and I could drive on gravel and the tar without my back felt like a hell of a pain. But I am 2 meters tall and I could feel the knee did not like the low sitting height on the BMW.. The dealer called one of his customers who came with an older Africa Twin. Much better for the knee and back. The dealer also suggested that I look for a Tenere xt660z. The dealer does not think I should "settle" with a Versys, cb500x, Suzuki DL 650 VStrom etc. And avoid machines with carburetor from before the year 2000 as our petrol prices in Europe are insane and I have a low budget. For some reason you can not buy KLR in my country. So now I have to decide if I should not go on adventures again, now that I have the time for it, in a larger part of the world.. Ship the bike and go on adventure One of my adult children does not have a motorcycle himself due to education time, but would like to take part in some of the trips and also would like to borrow the motorcycle to drive where the tarmac is almost impassable. I live today on a small pension from the work injury compensation, so a new machine can not be considered due to the world's highest taxes on motorcycles in my country. eg. a Harley-Davidson Pan America ™ 1250 Special costs $ 47,095.92.. Which machine should I buy in exchange for my old Honda? I can do minor repairs myself and more. 1) I can not pick up a heavy machine 2) The machine must be the most reliable on the market 3) The cheapest in spare parts 4) Long range on gasoline and long service intervals 5) Do not leave me stranded on a deserted country road due to overcomplicated electrical components 6) Must be able to run on poor quality gasoline 7) ABS must have? 8) What did I forget to consider ??
