    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.

    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!

    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?

    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.

    I've been riding this exquisite bike since 2015. I came to it from a Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200 and a DRZ400S (which I still own as a backup for buddies who want to ride with me, but are "bike-orphaned"). The 690 Enduro is the perfect compromise between the weight benefits of the DRZ and the power of the Tenere. I can't sing the 690's praise enough. It is a blast to cruise down the freeway at a steady 80 mph, or drift through the Santa Monica mountain twisties, or goat-whip it up some gnarly trail at Big Bear or Cleveland national forest. Don't listen to those who say it can't keep up with the heavyweights on long-distance rides. It most certainly can, especially with the right aftermarket seat or - even better - an Airhawk seat pad stretched over the Sweet Cheeks bottle carrier (increases fuel capacity by a couple of liters). The bike's only drawback is that it is not ideal for tight single-tracks which involved sharp, rising switchbacks, due to its relatively ungenerous turning angle. Apart from that, it is a far less stressful bike to take into difficult terrain than the 500 lb adventure machines we love on the freeways. With only 320 lbs to cart around, it is quite nimble. The torque is ridiculously neck-snapping and always induces an insane grin in city riding and on steep, rocky hills. I keep thinking I should get a 240 lb exc, but I'm lazy and useless with tools, so the incredibly low-maintenance schedules keep me on this reliable beast's haunches. The only thing that might get me to trade it in is the forthcoming 790 middleweight from KTM or the T7 under development from Yamaha.  I don't ever see myself going back to a 500 lb+ bike... the bulk and limitations of those behemoths just isn't worth tolerating when you can ride a thoroughbred stallion, drop it a dozen times while riding solo and never worry about picking it up, or having it fall on you in a ditch.

    Compared to others in it's class it was the most comfortable for me. I adore the 3 cylinder engine.

    I had a '13 GSA 1200. It was too big for me.
    "Pick a standard 1200, no?"
    No, because I love the rugged bulkyness of the Adventure models.

    So...here's the new toy! A 2013 F800GSA, "sand beige" color, with only 16k KMs, and full optional: Full aluminium panniers set with BMW internal bags for the side panniers, heated grips, ESA, ABS/ASC, on-board computer, 2 riding modes (Road/Enduro), LED foglights, LED blinkers, and maybe even something else.
    Plus, the previous owner installed a couple toys that I would've installed anyway: crash bars for the "tank" (by GIVI), a bigger skidplate (GIVI again), and the expanded sidestand base (no idea who made it).

    After a full day of riding, I can say I'm VERY satisfied. Fuel consumption is ridicolously low, the bike's very comfortable (solo and with pillion), and most importantly, it's FIFTY KILOGRAMS lighter than both my previous GSA1200 and my ex-SuperTenere.

    I've only found 3 things I don't like on this bike:
    1- Sound. Easily fixable with a proper exhaust.
    2- Handguards. They leave half my hand exposed to air/cold.
    3- Windscreen. It's big, but it leaves my head exposed.

    Again, I can easily fix all these "problems".

    Can't wait to ride more! :)

    Definitely a good bike, no doubt.
    Although...
    I have to admit I'm not really the biggest fan of the parallel-twin engine.
    It has power and torque, sure, but I don't like the "curve". It's a tad too linear.
    Another thing I don't like about the S10, it's the...tank. Rather, the size of it. 23liters aren't really a lot, in my opinion, for ADVing or even for simply touring.
    FINALLY (I promise) I feel like the suspension are a tad...lacking. I can't seem to find a proper setting: a couple weeks ago I was touring in Sardinia (Island on the left of Italy), and even with the suspensions stiffened up, the bike was feeling "wobbly".

    Aside from those, I have no other complaints. LOL
