XT is a great bike! What about a BMW G 650? Relatively light, seat can be lowered, there are lots of mods and support available. A friend has a Triumph Tiger (2015 model) as his daily ride which is pretty awesome - dunno about after sale support & reliability though, time will tell.

That will kill you on services! Desmo valve mechanism is a cow.

What about a V-Strom 650? Very good bikes and quite low from what I remember

Valve service every 24000 = R6000.00 :(
