Question you live in Europe, what bike would you buy?

Assuming you moved to Europe where fuel is $6 per gallon and were going to buy A bike as your ONLY mode of transportation. What would you buy?

Keep in mind range, comfort, ability to travel/carry. I'm not doing this, just thought of it this am, there's so many to chose from.

I'm thinking either the k1200r or a Honda ST..

your thoughts? talk amoungst yourselves.

No question:
KTM 950 or 990 AdventureS

Thing kicks arse, if the road is not perfectly smooth this thing will murder just about any supersports bike. The 950 Supermotard and 990 Superduke are better hooligan bikes but to focussed.
and petrol prices.....move to Austria
