In a rush: Suzuki V-Strom 650 vs. BMW F650 GS TWIN
We leave in two days: if you were going to ride with a pillion on tarmac for some 3000 kms in 14 days, what would you get, V-Strom or F650 GS Twin ABS? Confort for the pillion is essential (my wife is able to complain up to 8 times per second in a good day).
We had a plan to go to South Africa, but had to put it on stand-by. But we finally go and have to choose today the bike we rent, so we are in a RUSH!
I'm not a big BMW fan, but for 10% more we'd get GPS and top box in addition to the panniers (the only attribute in the Suzuki; I had planned duffle and map).
Thanks in advance!
