Grab a KLR or a F650GS. The former gets better mileage stock, with a big tank, and is cheap. Road manners are fine.

The latter is nice, does quite well on the road, and gets around 70mpg.

To the brains out here:

What is the top speed of an XRR (theoretically) in stock trim with a 14/48 setup?

XR650R Review (not mine; YouTube)

Pretty interesting review. I think he's off the mark on a couple of points, but, a very good review anyway.
