    Quick, swap that horrible GS for a Tiger at least, before you get banned from this forum. Lol

    Come on T-Guys, diversity is GOOD....  And, comparison shows what a terrific bike the TTSE is!!!

    That said, I LOVE my KLR, my 'Big Happy Dog', go-to bike for around town errands. Rode it all around the USA for a few years.
    Z1 is 'my baby', owned since '76, traded for another bike and bought it back 1.5 years later, felt like I sold my child.  Suspension beats you to death, handling, though good in it's time, sucks, brakes are a joke, but I love it and told my sons to put my ashes in it's frame so I can ride forever.
    Africa Twin== KLR on steroids.  Comfy, light, lots of power, good off-road when needed, doesn't have the protection of the TTSE but actually a perfectly acceptable touring bike in many ways.
    What I like about 'Adventure Bikes' is that when the road turns to gravel, instead of saying 'sh*t!!!' you say 'Whoopee!!!!'..

    But.. no bike has ever pleased me as much at my Trophy... Warts and all ( it's a '13, 76K on it now... Africa Twin as 'stolen' about 20K from it..  :062:  )

    You nailed it!  I canít or wonít take the Trophy down those roads.  This just gives me more opportunities.  I saw a trip report from San Juan mountains in Colorado.  12000 foot  summits, but dirt roads.  Now I have a second bike that can make that trip😀
