Ok...l am looking for a bike that I will have mainly on the road and some off road for when I want to go fly fishing. Currently the KLR650 is good but I am finding it is "winding out" on the highways up north where I reside and would prefer a bike that I can use in both situations comfortably. The general speeds on the roads around here for the traffic is around 110 to 120 kms. I am forever being tailgated even by the big rigs...which...is very frustrating. I am also looking at going on a long distance ride towards Florida and need a bike that will do well in that situation also. The bikes I have been looking at is the BMW F650 GS Dakar. My concern with this bike is the "winding out" on the highways. The other one I was looking at was the BMW R1200 GS...concerned that this bike may possibly be too heavy of a bike for me to handle. I am experienced but not a seasoned rider. I also have been looking at the Ducati Multistrada 1000 DS the touring bike.
If anyone can give me the feedback and opinions I need it would be greatly appreciated. One more thing...what is the DucatiM695 equivalent to in the bike world?? Thanks!!
