I ride an SV650 that I am slowly converting into a proper touring bike. I ride year round here in northeast PA, so long as there isn't fresh snow or ice on the roads. I am planning on riding the Trans Taiga this spring/early summer, so my clip-ons will be replaced with handlebars, sport touring tires will be replaced with some dual sport knobbies, and the suspension swapped with a more off-road worthy set.
