Got my L's today (had them before, but they ran out and couldn't renew). I'm trying not to get my heart set on a GS500, as they're probably going to be hard to find for $3500 (2nd hand) in good cond and in next few weeks. So what else is there that's gunna hold up to daily trips < 10km and roughly 2 trips a month over 400km? Talking about gear and all on the occasional trip, caravan park camping and some off main road camping. I'd like to keep good fuel efficiency at speed, which I read is a downside to the ER-5. So, what I would ultimately love is to have a [highway] road bike that can tour. Dirt roads are optional, and may only be 2-3 times a year.
