The Triumph certainly seems to have a lot of your bases covered, and at a good price. I've just re-read the Kevin Ash review from around the time this one launched, and he sounded very impressed.

You've not expressed any interest in the Guzzis. Do these not grab you?

I suppose, with the weight and that 32 Litre tank, they are too much on the touring side. Guzzi character and that fuel range appeals to me, tho.
Actually, I hadn't looked closely at the Stelvio 1200 ABS or the Norge (either of them) until today; interesting bikes. We may have to find a dealer in the area and see what they've got in stock...
