I am riding to AK this summer. Keep your inputs coming.
Sounds like an Adventure would suit you well then. I loved my 690 but it sure was not comfortable for long rides on any kind of highway. The 1190 will probably have a bit more fuel range which should help. Since you aren't trail riding, the switch sounds like a no brainer.
