I know that my question will ultimately be my own decision but... I'm going to Gillette from Milwaukee, WI.
I can't decide between riding my '88 K75s or my 07 F650GS. Here are the pros/cons: K75S - smooth, great for the highways, comfortable seat BUT not very easy for me to handle at low speeds (think 25 mph) and is an older bike. F650GS- new, easier to handle, especially at low speeds, has roadside assistance BUT has an uncomfortable seat and is lightweight on highways. I'll be staying off I-80 as much as possible.
I don't have a ton of LD riding experience (did ride to Lima Rally a couple of years ago) so that's why I"m not sure about which bike. I will be riding alone (I'm female) and will be staying in motels on the way there.
I'm just looking for some input from the wizened members of this esteemed forum! Thanks in advance!
