For me riding is an emotional experience and ADV bikes have always screamed " look at me I am Mr sensible, boxes to put the kitchen sink in and some pressed shirts. Remember, they were first conceived as a way to get non bikers into riding to make up for the declining number of riders and the negative image biking attained. I am sure they are capable machines and in the right hands are as quick as Sports bikes/Hyperbikes in most situations but when pushing the limits they are not as quick (depending on the rider skill level). I will keep my 220hp Hyperbike that allows me to to blast up to 200mph occasionally and take my breath away with the acceleration everyday. Each to their own and riding motorcycles is a broad church. Ride Fast!
Let's do a trip across the Simpson desert. I'll Take a gs850, you take the hyperbike.

Touring bikes are like 700 Lb couches on two wheels. Sport bikes get your heart going.
