Also not sure for the shorter trips and putting around backroads it is not a bit too big for my needs. Will also be loading in a toy hauler for camping and not sure I want to wrestle a bike that large.

I think you're right - too big for loading in a toy hauler... I use mine as a street bike only - easy gravel roads if I have to..

I had a ktm690 that was surprisingly good on the road (much better that the 450/530/500) and great for the medium dirt (not so much for woods/single track).. Almost had a gs800 but the sale fell through. 690 would be easier to load and be better in the dirt, 800 would be mo betta on the road and heavier (call me captain obvious)... Either of those get my vote...
