There are so few choices when buying a high grade touring bike these days. It's a shame. When you do find one and look at the price... it's well over $1200.00. That's a shame also!
The Windsor Tourist is a bike you can do practically anything on, from riding cross country like one family did (see link below) to commuting back and forth to work or just a nice day out on your bike.
Windsor's product engineers designed this bike for comfortable loaded touring. The angles of the butted, cro-moly frame are relaxed for stability, the wheelbase is long, the clearances around the wheels sufficient for fat, sturdy tires and fenders. The wheels are especially strong, each built with 36, 14-gauge spokes laced into strong, double-wall aluminum rims with comfy riding Kenda Euro Trek long-distance tires on them. The drivetrain is a durable mix of Shimano's smooth shifting road & mountain components. It has a wide-range 27-speed Shimano Tiagra STI/Sora/Deore setup, gears for the Rockies (up and down) to the the desert.
And... Best of all, the Windsor Tourist comes with an aluminum touring rack ($50.00 Value). There are also braze-on spoke holders on the left side chain stay for you to carry extra spokes (you supply). You don't want to get caught out there with your bike loaded up with panniers (saddlebags) and break a spoke and be left high & dry.
