I see this as all about choices. I hope JerryH fits on the GW and it works out for him. On paper, it seems to tick the boxes that work for him to have the confidence to do the rides he wants.
Hell, some people won't buy a bike because it only came in certain colors and not what they wanted. I see the centerstand thing as at least a reasonable desire to have when plunking money down on a bike OR that it have tubeless tires. Very reasonable. Basically, either go oldschool all the way (tubes, centerstand, kick start would be great) or modernize (tubeless, fuel injection and so on).
I like having choices in the 250 range. Used to be the Rebel and Yamaha 250 (v-twin even!) were it.
Personally, I am hung up on Fuel Injection. The only bike I have that has carbs is my Ural. As soon as my kid is old enough to ride on the back with me, I am selling the sidecar rig. I gotta have FI. Where is my internet picture
I like all the choices we have now. Hopefully more will come!
