Seth I don't know if you've experienced it but there's something sweet riding around on the 690 now, watching the Dakar and knowing their bikes are good... but not as good as the bike I'm riding around on!
Agreed. There will always be new rally bikes popping out the factory doors, but in my book bigger engines seem a bit more durable in the long run as well.
