I starting riding high school and got hooked on this great activity. I'm a 20+ year member of the Concours Owners Group and have work and attended several national rally's. My last sport-touring bike was a Honda ST1300 but it got to heavy to handle. I then bought a Suzuki v-Strom 650 as a lighter alternative but was never satisfied with the touring capabilities of the bike. I just bought a 2016 BMW F 800 GT to correct that error and hopefully this will be the bike that's "just right"
