690 with screen and fuel tank.
It's a friggin' motorcycle, it's not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The windnoise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you scared every now and then. Suck it up. -- Scary Gary Mc

HP2 with suspension upgrade both front and back!  :mwink:

Or 690 Enduro R with rally faring and tanks!

Or BMW 800 GS with full Bitubo/Ohlins/WP suspension and enduro conversion!

Failing any of those, Guessing all 990's are raptured in my case (S and R models), KTM 950. Standard will do perfectly fine!

KTM 990

Why not get one now? Won't be sorry! except maybe for rate of tyre replacement and a bit fuel economy  :pot:

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more"

If everyone's bikes were raptured, you can just beg, borrow or steal a new one every 10 hours :P
