10k to spend...
No question... a KTM 950 ADV or SE.
If you've ever ridden a mid to lightweight D/S bike... you'll appreciate the KTM.
Rode a 950 ADV through a rock garden along a trail through Red Rock Canyon in Nevada and all I can say is... damn!
I didn't think a 400+lb bike could handle that knarly trail the way it did.
If I would have taken my Vee through the same trail... I would have definitely trashed it.

He's got some of the basics down, but, in the end, that just has to create a bigger clusterfuck in that chinese fire drill of a cognitive thought he brought to the dog and pony show of his new found awareness. - Jack Goff
