I should thank Triumph for changing the tiger, now I can remove it from consideration. A less "dirt" worthy Vstrom...I'll pass. There are better sport tourers and adventure tourers.

Anything over 8000 rpm in 2nd on up is really not legal. I have had some fast bikes but the daytona really needs to be ridden up high (not my style) I gotta get back on a twin.

My bike "ADD" is just a problem.

My hi-viz yellow stitch takes care of the noticing. I'm sure I look like a banana humping a lime

I lost a cell on my battery and had a hit and miss starting capacity. So I bumped my K12RS off and on for nearly a year before my lazy butt bought a new battery. It was so easy I could do it sitting on the bike with my wife on back and full luggage. Just park accordingly on hills.

Hills are good. Especially if you are riding a 1954 BSA 500 single with a 12:1 piston.
