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.

Love mine. Was shopping for a little larger Adv bike than my DR650, able to run highway speeds and as I have gotten older, I wanted cruise control. I was supposed to still give two other bikes test rides, but when I took the GS out, it felt like it was my bike! No regrets! The keyless ignition gave me a fit at 275 miles on the odometer, but Beemer made it right, after I got it to the right dealer, which I had to do myself because it wasn't the closest.
