I feel exactly the same way. First bike I've ever owned that was a disappointment. Now that I have it running well, I may already be over it. The handling was crappy at first, and now I don't feel 100% confident in the corners.
Definitely a Ducati Multistrada next or maybe the Triumph Explorer or maybeeeee....
Young enough to know I can. Old enough to know I shouldn't. Stupid enough to do it anyway
