I'm in the market for an adventure bike and with my budget have narrowed it down to three bikes. New '14 Vee, new '14 Triumph Tiger Explorer, or a used '14 BMW R 1200 GS with 7k miles. I've never owned a non Japanese bike, or anything other than a sport bike. I love the style of the BMW, but concerned about high costs of ownership. The Triumph is a great looking bike with a few features that the Vee does not have, namely cruise control. The Vee seems a bit vanilla, but the price is significantly less and I know what to expect from Suzuki. I owned a Hayabusa for a few years and currently own a GSXR1000, both have been daily drivers and bulletproof. So I figure it's no better than to ask current Vee owners, do you wish you would have went with either of the other two bikes mentioned? Great site by the way. Lots of support and information.
