I come new to Colorado with my 1996 Honda ST1100 sport-tourer. I've had the bike since new, and it's been lightly used; 56k miles are on the odo.
I've decided to get something new, something lighter and with ABS. I have ridden about every adventure bike there is between 650 and 1200 cc in the last month. I also took the ST on a four day loop into the passes and gorges in Colorado, sticking strictly to paved roads.
My ST isn't worth much because of its age and condition. A dealer that handles Suzuki will give me 1000 in trade on anything they have, and they have a lot of inventory, and carry KTM, Ducati, and others.
My question is about seat comfort. I have a bike I can do 700 mile days on. Will the DL1000 feel the same?
