Thanks for the response, Steve.  I hear you re: a dual sport bike, I've wanted one ever since I lived in the SoCal desert six years ago.  I could literally ride out of my yard and go anywhere from Las Vegas to Mexico without travelling on pavement.  Would be good for the commutes, as well.

I've come to learn that regular, all-weather commuting is harder on the bike than any other street riding, unless perhaps you have the luxury of covered parking at your workplace.

Thanks again.
