If this proves to be a good ride we are going to do it again and camp. Providing we can find a good place while we are there.

Anyone have a line on a great twin or triple cylinder adventure bike? My hands can't hand thumper vibes, especially for longer rides. I don't plan to do much/any dual sporting with this bike. If it can do gravel roads, I'm happy.

Wants:
2-up capable
panniers and top box
windscreen

I plan to use the bike about 95% on road, so a sporty-tourer would be fine. I am seriously considering a Buell XB12XT, but figured I there might be something local that I haven't seen.

I have to replace the fork seals on my X Country BMW. Then, I will be selling it. I plan to have one larger bike for most riding and a 250cc dual sport for trips.
Thanks,
Jurgen

Excuse me while I horn in

I'm hoping to get out Sunday. Would like to meet some folks and see some different roads. I'm riding a stock F700GS and am not sure how "technical" a ride I am up to at this point but I wouldn't mind finding out. I'll watch this thread & try to get enough done Saturday that I can take Sunday off.
