Someone recommended a V-Strom 650 to start...not sure about those personally, but I've heard a lot good about them as well as the KLR 650. Thoughts?
Being a 6'6" former HD rider, skip the intermetiate step and get the GSA. If you are going to be in VA, there is a great dealer just south of Q-town, Morton's BMW in Fredericksburg. They sold me my GSA when I last deployed.
Get it and get it the way you want it.
Stay safe and Merry Chrismas from VA.
