Confused by all the different models esp , the mt-11my-16 designations, 1 wd. preferred, already have a 2wd sportsman, looking for best suited model for touring, wouldn't rule out a flathead, top speed on earlier bikes? Parts availability? People will always say buy a new one, thanks guys

I had a Dnepr/IMZ flathead.54-56, I guess. I rebuilt the whole rig. Simple to work on, and generally better quality metallurgy and parts than my 90s 650 Ural. The top speed with a sidecar is maybe 65, and I wouldn't take it on the slab. Great fun on backroads.

I had an early 90s Mt11 that I loved dearly. Simple engines. Flatheads are very old and few/far between. Ohv are good, but hard to find any that aren't tainted or messed up due to owner ignorance. One dialed in ohv are good. As said before, not fast bikes. Good for around town and on two lanes. 45 mph is a safe speed. 65 you should say some prayers. From an engineering and design standpoint, much better bikes than Urals. I'll get another one day.
