It's the advice and opinions expressed in this forum that I value the most, so......I'm contemplating the purchase of an adventurer/touring type of bike. Something along the lines of a KTM 950 ADV, BMW R1200 GS, or BMW F800GS. The Vstroms are in the equation as well. Share with me your opinions and any experience that you may have with any of these bikes. Maintenance issues, longevity, parts/accessory availability, and any forums or web sites that might be beneficial for me to browse. At the moment I'm looking at all the BMW GS's from the 1100's to 1150's to 1200's, and am really intrigued by the new 800. I'm wondering if you think the 800 is plenty of bike for a svelte 6'2" and 215 Lbs. I think that I'd like to start with day rides mostly, and work up to touring. I'm a little intimidated by the bigger bikes but it seems that everyone ends up there in the end....... Show me the light!!
