Talk to me about the F700GS
This is unfortunately another "which bike" thread. I'll not make the purchase before I ride each, so that's not the issue. I'm just not familiar with whatever it is that makes GSs such an enthusiast bike.
I'm looking at the F800R and the F700GS. I want a daily/commute rider, but I also travel regionally for work and would love to be able to strap some bags on and take a road trip in order to avoid the airport. I don't need a wheelie machine but I want to have more power than the cars on the interstate that are currently passing me in my '75 R75/6.
Thoughts about the 700? I don't much care about offroad. It may see a gravel driveway a few points in its life but I'm not looking for a dirt bike. My biggest concern is potential resale. GSs seem to hold their value, and folks can't seem to get rid of their 800Rs.
Other priorities are fuel mileage, luggage, and daily enjoyment. I'd like to be able to tuck down from time to time and go.
Any insight is very welcome.
