Take a look at the new Ducati Sport Classic GT1000 as well. It's got room for two plus it will have bags and a windshield as accessories.



I haven't seen pricing yet but I'm guessing about $9995.



I may be trading my ST4 for one.

Default The WeeStrom rocks...

The WeeStrom is great. You can get a WeeStrom, get the forks redone, get the brakes redone with SS lines, a full set of touring luggage, and still have enough left over to buy a SECOND one for the price of one GS.



The WeeSTrom is a great "do anything" bike, as long as it can really be called a road.



ITs comfortable, good 2-up (we've done LA to SAN and back 2-up, and MotoGP 2-up), good touring (I've done SF->LA->SF before on it), it gets good mileage, the luggage looks good on it (we have a 3-case givi setup).



However, it doesn't have all the power you would WANT. If you want more power, check out the VStrom Thou...

How's about a slightly used Kawasaki 600? The battery needs charging, but other than that it's in perfect shape. Ridden slow for sure. I can get you in touch with the owner.

W. Maine along NH border. Nice. I've spent some time up there. What a great place to visit! I'd done a ton of fill in work in forest product mfgs up in Maine during the 90's. Lovely state - lovely people.



I'd stay cheep & cheerful until yo feet are fully back on the cycling ground - but that is just me.



I'd also rec the Wee. But I'd do NOTHING to it but add some cheapo luggage and ride.



Then you can have a ton o' budget fun while you try to make up your mind what you really want. (insert song title here).

If you feel that the Ulysses is too tall for you I don't understand why you are favoring the GS or the Multistrada. Both of those bikes are not exactly easy for me to throw a leg over, and I'm 6'2". I said this before but if you haven't been on a bike for 20 years you should be looking for something a little less powerful and lighter than the motorcycles you mentioned. Ride that for a year or so and then start looking for what ever bike strikes your fancy.
