Definitely going with 2 doors. Not settled with just one lady. Riding style would depend on which gal's on my passenger seat.

I like versatility, so I vote for the Multi.

I am constrained by a small garage, so if I chose the sportbike, I would not be going off road ever, which would limit the fun for me. The right adventure bike (like that Multi or my Aprilia Dorsoduro) can be a lot of fun in the twisties as well.

Either of those is like bringing a knife to a gunfight in either situation. Don't get me wrong , I like the Dorsoduro , but it's neither a motocrosser nor a roadracer.

I guess what I meant to ask is, which gives a greater perception of lean? Being up high or closer to the ground?

For me, It was the sportbike that gave me the greatest feeling of lean angle. The sensation of having my helmet close to the ground always made me feel faster. I don't feel quite so fast, mid-corner, on a taller bike; motard or tall Adv-bike. The proof that the speeds were nearly the same, mid-corner, could be seen by tire wear.

I guess it comes down to how you want to see the world when you're leaned over.

The sportbike, for sure.

The tall bike, since your body moves farther along tha arc.

That certainly makes more sense, the guy on the Multi seems to prove your point.

A slow , non-leaning Dork isn't a very good example.

^ lol +1

Also, that guy on the speedway bike is hardly your average rider like us. Most of us have to settle for real world conditions, hardly non-factory race bikes (at best) and average-joe skills.
