What do you think about these choices?

Well, you obviously are very familiar with the Versys and how it does. The Versys probably has the edge up on the long distance riding and out right comfort, but I would say the Terra should do way better off road, especially if you want to play a bit. The suspension on the Terra will be way better and the fuel tank under the seat really makes a huge difference at keeping that weight low on the bike. It shouldn't be too bad of a long haul bike as long as you set it up for some feature comforts.

The Terra does suffer from a small 3.1 gal fuel tank. I think the Versys is right at 5 gals.
