Is this an oxymoron?
I'm toying with the idea of picking up a second bike, and one option I'm considering is an F650ST. However, one of the uses for this bike will be a trip to Alaska, about 10,000 miles round trip. I'm worried that a 650 single will be uncomfortable (primarily noise, vibration, buffeting) for extended high speed (80+ mph) highway riding. I'm also told that the bike's future owner would want a touring-friendly bike, so long distance cruising is an overall concern (not just for the AK trip).
