I have had several BMW's, Honda's, and some others. I would have to think that of all of them the V-Strom DL650 is the best for going forever with just the love of riding. I like the others including my scooters but the Wee is rock solid for paved and touring, rougher riding such as some trail and logging/mining roads, and even works good when you need to do some travel with snow and such.

I'd have to go with the Honda XR650L. The platform really hasn't changed since it came out in 1996. This model doesn't keep building with the latest technology. It's solid, it works, seldom breaks, why change it. If you need parts you have 16 years of parts that will pretty much just bolt on. I don't believe the engine has changed at all. Honda has the CRF line that they can keep on the cutting edge. I view The XRL like a good tool. Next years shovel looks and work like last years shovel because it's a proven design.
