I’d say it looks a bit big for you if I'm honest...

My current V twin. 2017 DL1000 which does rather well off road. previously had: KTM 990, Africa Twin XVR750 and a Varadero XL1000. The latter was one heavy beast

Just brought another Honda V Twin 1999 XL1000V Varadro,to join my Africa Twin (RD07a) & Transalp 600, this is my fourth Vara, the earliest I have owned but the lowest mileage.
Came with full Honda luggage set but have removed that to get down to the 'raw' machine.
Far less rider 'aids' no FI, ABS, HISS but still coupled brakes, compared to later models.
So far I am finding that it suits my riding better than the later FI models as the gearing is correct for my riding, although top is a bit bussy but then with the grunt I can leave it in top @40+ instead of shuffling up/down with the 6 speed box FIs. The carb fueling is far better at small throttle openings, better in the lanes, it may be a bit lighter than the later models but its still a gert lump, but I can get both feet flat on the ground and the tail is lower than the Africa so easier getting my leg over (old age problem).

My lovely RD04. Would I swap it for a modern 'adventure' bike? No way. For an XT500 - probably, if mint.
