Easy, ZRX1200/1100R. The Bandit 1200/1250 would work too. Easier yet because there are several different kinds of bikes that I can use whenever through "arrangements".



If I lived somewhere that had corners around probably a Daytona 955i or Sprint ST would get the nod.

Funny how that works, huh? Two and a half decades of riding and my ability to hustle a CBR1000rr around a track is no better than hustleing my K100rs. There's what- 150 lb difference between them? Maybe a Keith Code school is in my future.

I could run around faster on my Multistrada then my Daytona with 50 more ponies. I'm getting older or wiser or both. I've decided to go with another big handlebar and low foot pegs in the future. And if not faster, certainly easier to go fast on.

If I had to reduce to one bike, it would probably be my DL650. It handles well, has excellent range and with the Motech racks I've put on, has plenty of storage for touring or commuting.

Here, Here!

BTW- The spelling error is a communication error between my brain and fingers allowing for the typo- but you don't care 'bout that do you?

I'd probably get a BMW GS. I had a V-Strom 1000 but the GS might be a little better for the run down to Tierra del Fuego. On a budget I might go for the Kawasaki KLR-650.

The bike I have now - Bandit 600S with Givi saddlebags. And that's exactly why I bought it - it had to do it all. A bit too buzzy for long-distance touring, though. In retrospect, an SV650S might have been a better choice. But I'm happy with my Bandito.
