Me too, LOL (want one). I am pretty spoiled by great bikes, started slow in the 60s but going out with a bang it seems, LOL. Had the Tiger 1050, Multi 1200, now Super Tenere. I have ridden the 800xc, and really like it.
Went to Alaska this June on the ST, passed a lot of KLRs stuck behind RVs pulling campers, pretty nice to have the power to pass the whole string.
High school friend (60s) down the road had a 200cc Tiger cub, I had a cushman hilander.
