I mostly do woodworking in my garage. So, there's dust, chips, and shavings everywhere otherwise. It's a smaller than normal 2 car garage, so it doesn't take long to vacuum up dust.

Mine gets absolutely destroyed when I work on something. But it all gets put back together and put away after a job. Swept/vacuumed and tools put back in their places.

I'm on a Daytona 675. There's worse bikes than a Speed Triple to tour/adv ride on. Just run what you have and don't worry about it.
