OP , First off Welcome to the forum, Lots of great people on here to converse with.
Second -if going with say a DL650 Think about if you will be doing or wanting to do any off road
or light dirt riding. The XT version fits this area a bit better than the standard version.
Still any 650 or 1000 is a solid pick. Seat height can be a bit tall for shorter riders.
But lots of products to help with that too.
Fun bikes to fix up the way you like it with plenty of storage ideas for a 2 up trip.
When you think of this bike as an ADV think of : Part Enduro, part sport bike, part Touring..
They are pretty much all of this balled into one bike.
