The perfect bike for me would have a seating position like the klr, have a 7 gal tank, get 50mpg, have the storage like my voyager, but the weight of a sport touring bike, adj windshield, shaft drive, hydraulic clutch, ride by wire, hydraulic lifters, all that for easy maintenance, I'm really dreaming huh lol
Except for the 50 MPG that sounds like a C10 Concours which can be found all day for about $2500.

Hi..I have a versys 650 which I have converted to a dirt road bike (woodys wire wheels, ohlins, heated grips and slipper clutch ) I think it's the best value for money bike I have (also have zx12r and Caponord 1200 for distance riding ) if you can afford two bikes versys and a biggie is perfect. If not versys handles well, goes hard and is comfortable for long rides and is reliable and cheap (especially 2nd hand ) you can certainly do worse..Cheers. ..John negus
