The only bike that has tempted me recently was the Speed Triple a mate had. I could not get over how smooth the engine was. And that sound …quite addictive.
The fact I could see clearly through the mirrors was the icing on the cake. :)
Chris, a group of us got together on the Beemer GS 30th anniversary and did a 30,000k’s in 30 days challenge using one 1200 GS. That bike impressed me with its ability to be ridden long distance (1000 km days) and remain comfortable and reliable.
