All those bikes can cruise at 65mph/104 kph no problem.....but, for any distance, can you? When I got my '72 Yamaha R5 350 (The RD I also had later was about the same) I thought now I can tour. 90 miles later I was noticing that I'd be beat at 120+ miles - and I was young. Vibes, harsh suspension, small ergonomics, it all adds up. Touring here in the US can mean 150 miles or more between gas stations, 40+mph winds and all sorts of stuff. I guess in Denmark/Europe there's a town or village every 20 kms so maybe that will be more workable.
