There are a few bikes out there with single front discs.  I think she has outgrown a 300, but probably the Honda again.

Think so too
Maybe a 450?

Personally I would rather have her go for a 450, but who knows how she thinks?  Also, the 450 may be a bit wild for everyday use?

The 450 is not an option. She has previously explained that given the kind of rising she does, a 1000km service interval is prohibitive.

True, but she is getting good with the spanners.   ;)

On the pic of her bike under wraps, the front wheel looks a bit narrower and possibly larger than the ones you posted.  It is probably just the angle though.

The 300 Rally fairing outline under the cover is easy to spot

The 450 does not come near this and with the distance she travels it would be a schlep!!

Definitely 300 I think.

Plus, I don't think the 450 was on the "teaser list" she sent out  ... I think

Is she doing South America to Alaska again, or did she not finish it the first time?

As predicted by many here. I think she made a good choice there. More  oomph than  she had  before, still lite and manageable.
Will the subframe on the 300 Rally cope with the weight / her baggage? Time will tell. But a good choice nonetheless.
