Get a low mileage, used KLR650 for less than $3500. Totally different bike that's tons of fun around town, back roads, dirt roads and light trails and never needs to be washed. Your Sprint will last longer and you'll have a blast.

You guys have helped answer a very nagging question for me. I currently own 4 bikes (3 are payed for) but I started looking at the Moto Guzzis and really liked the Breva 1100 which I test rode last week. I thought I would just trade the oldest one, a R1100RT with 36,000 miles on it, in. But, the bike runs perfect and I just did a very heavy maintenance myself on her. So yes, there is room for one more in the garage, albeit even if just a little cramped. My only fear ? What if they breed ?

I got to get my two cents in here somewhere.



The libertarian guy I used to know had a livein girlfriend and thought he owned the world. She was younger and he was old and wise. Then, one day, she moved on.

Depends on the pairings. If you've got an Interceptor and a Gixxer, you could get a one-off MotoGP replica. If you've got an Interceptor and an Intruder, you could get a Madura.

I'd keep the ring in my pocket, ready to use, for when I heard the words "biological clock ticking".

Maduras are sterile, like mules, aren't they?

Phil,



I just rode 500+ miles this weekend, down to the Keys and West to Naples. A lot of it in the rain...windshields, who knew??? That's a distance that would have left me half dead and the HD ready for 4-8 hours of maintenance. It's hard to imagine two more different bikes...raw and primitive versus smooth and refined. As much as I love that old HD, there's little doubt which bike I'll be riding most. I've been browsing around the COG website, mostly just familiarizing myself with bike in general. I expect I will join soon, and taking a ride to West VA on the Concours sounds like a lot of fun! Thanks very much for the note.
