Most dogs turn away at the last second. My neighbor has about a 35 pound dog that kept pushing the limit every day, so much I could feel him nipping at my ankles a few times. At that point I'd had...

For your needs, I would also recommend the DR650. It's a good height, handles service roads excellently, and with stock gearing doesn't feel at all strained at 70-75mph. It's also torquey enough that...

Yes, that logic is flawed. I'm not opposed to speed limits. I just want most of them to be about 15mph faster than they are so I won't be speeding anymore. :deal

For my riding, I'd spend $20k on a good used DR650 for dirt, a good used Tiger 800 for mixed adv stuff, and a comfortable mile muncher like an FJR or ST1300 for the long hauls.
