An XRL isn't really that bad on the road. A new tank, jetting and exhaust and it can hold it's own. It's certainly better on rough ground. If you're talking multi-week/month touring, I'd go with the F800. If you're thinking long weekends out and about, get some saddle time on the Honda - you may be surprised. (I think there's a good reason it hasn't changed much in 20 years!) I always thought the biggest downside to the Honda was the seat height, but at 6-3 it's not a problem for you.
