The Seeker

I've been searching low and high.

BMW tales of woe and cost of ownership fears have me ruling out all comers before taking that Bavarian plunge.  
The only other ~ 1000cc, shaft drive, upright/ standard/ ADV is the Yamaha Super Tenere.

I rode this one:

It fits, it's nice, has everything I want.  The steering is a little wooden.  It doesn't lay over in turns.  I don't know if this is new tires or nature of the beast.

It will be mine, but wow:

A highball opener + lowball offer on my trade, combined with the handling, soured me to this deal.  I can't shake it, tho- the super10 is my next bike.
