    I know that there are no such things as the perfect motorcycle for everything but I believe that BMW was getting close with the 2017 Rallye.  This bike is also referred to by those in the know as "the Frankenbike" because of the rider, Geoff Ballard who was responsible for putting it together and sending the plan to BMW.  The Rallye is powered by the time-tested 1170cc ‘Wasserboxer’ air/liquid-cooled flat-twin DOHC powerplant that pumps out 125hp and drives through a six-speed gearbox and shaft drive single-sided swingarm (https://adbmag.com.au/editorial/adv-test-1000cc-adventure-bike-shootout/).  The bike is further improved with the addition of Woody's Superlite and Superlaced Dakar wheels, Black Dog Cycle Works adventure pegs, Cyclops lighting, the AltRider lower bars and skid plate, and the MachineArtMoto cylinder head guards.

    Definitely my favorite bike I've ever owned. Its an absolute blast to ride. Comfortable in the street and its never made me overly nervous off-road. It commutes well, it camps well, it slays twisties and it looks sexy doing it all. Its a bad mama-jama.

    2017DEC15: After many years of multiple bikes in the garage, I have gutted the garage and settled onto one bike--the Honda Africa Twin. This occurred in early August, 2017. During the first four months, my AT has been to KY, VA, NC, SC, and of course many places in TN. With the exception of about 25 miles, all have been pavement miles and the OEM street tires. 
    So, now that the winter temperature are moving in, the AT has been sitting more than the Concours 14 would during these days. Why? Probably time available to ride which is now different (temporarily), but also maybe wind protection and heated grips. Really, though my riding gear is good, heated grips are here awaiting installation, and there is some nice engine heat flowing on the upper legs, but it could be more that the days are shorter and I am having to re-ride the same roads to get into the hilly areas that are about two hours east of here.
    For the winter riding in my area, the street tires will remain fitted. In the mean time some 60/40 Shinkos are in the garage and will be fitted as close to a departure for areas out west. Have never used Shinko tires, but figure I would try these once. 
    So, about the bike. I like it! Engine power/torque is more than adequate. Gearing is fine for pavement, but too tall for out west. Having ridden many nice roads in the Appalachian mountains and the Cumberland plateau, and of course the Tail of the Dragon, I have to say the bike works well. From the start, I was not confident in the skinny front tire, but the rubber compound is soft and sticks well. 
    The OEM handguards are not robust enough for tip-over impacts with the ground, so Bark Busters have been added. Also, since I like having trail spares, the OEM levers were moved to the E12 saddlebags for standby duty. Some blue anodized short levers from an eBay seller in China have been mounted. These are sturdy levers and more economical to use. I had an orange set on the 690R and they survived four tip-overs. 
    During the 2018 adventure, Givi quick release panniers rack and the new Wolfman Rocky Mountain bags were added. This adventure took me to the North Rim Grand Canyon (Crazy Jug and Toroweap) and some North Rim camping at Jacobs Lake for several days. Then, it was up to Kodachrome in Utah for a few days of riding in that area. Colorado was roamed as well.

    Bought it new in '89, I doubt I will ever sell it.  One of the smoothest and quietest v-twin motors I've ever ridden.  For me it needs more fuel capacity and fit a tall person better, a bit cramped.

    It's rude, crude and unrefined, vibrates like half a girls battery operated boyfriend, and it is fun to ride!

    this just might be the sweet spot between a 550 pound ADV and a gutless KLR.  I have owned both.

    Very fun bike - lots of torque - and a super value at around 12K. It’s definitly not a dirt bike but it’s very capable off road.  It’s been great for me - mine is nearly all stock, including the seat! Ergonomics improved with 1/1 risers and lowered foot pegs.

    I lost my Goldwing in the Santa Rosa Fires and this is my replacement.  I bought it used from a member here and I am very happy!  There is something about the Boxter engine that just feels right.  I do still look at the new Goldwing and the K1600 BMW, and the Triumph.  Perhaps I need all of them?

    Man... I wanted this to be a 5* bike, but I can only give it a 4* rating. Suspension is holding it back...  I bought this bike to replace my 2008 R1200GSA as a more streetable bike than my 2009 KTM 950 Super Enduro.  It is that... for sure.  It has WP suspension similar to my 950, but it has nearly 4 inches less travel. There is not much adjustment... I have tweaked it a lot... and just can't get it right.  Other than that, this bike is GREAT. Ergos are great. Power is amazing. Neat machine.

    Best motorcycle I've owned.  
    Only drawback I've found is too many electronic gizmos.  Don't get me wrong, the electronics are WONDERFUL but when they fail, you aren't left with many onsite repair options.
