Wait for Triumph to come out with the naked version of the 675. What a nice matched pair of Triumphs you would have then.

Since your loving wife is very down to earth, get something she will like riding on as well. Keep that women happy to keep her around.

But what's your inseam length? Remember, he's 6'3"... What's the stock seat height on the Uly, again?

Well, I will offer some pithy commentary on your first four choices. The R1200GS is big, mainly. If you want to invade Poland, it would be a great choice. You will kill yourself on the K1200R. The moto Guzzi will rarely start, but it will look very cool. The KTM would be a pretty strong choice. It will start most of the time, you will brag about its offroad prowess, and it will have outstanding orangeness. Plus KTM makes outstanding panniers....they are watertight and large enough to hold a Honda Rebel.

Though we haven't met yet, I'm 60 and already have a wife, since I live here in Napa too, could you, in the event of your unfortunate, premature demise, perhaps get your wife's phone number?

A friend of mine that owns a Daytona 955i also have a 916 and a CBR-600RR, are those bikes different enough?

If you keep the Daytona, then get some kind of twin for the second bike. I'm partial to the R1150R or Duc.

This is only a guess; You don't sell motorcycles for a living, do you?
