As usual, the collective wisdom and (mostly) thoughtful opinions around this place amaze me.
Thinking more that the Stelvio and Tenere are more bike than I need (though that realization doesn't do much to diminish their allure) - 15 large, 600 lbs and 1.2 liters to mostly commute and take 200-300 mile trips makes me think of the douches who use their Land Rovers primarily to make Whole Foods runs.
Looks like the Tiger 800 roadie makes the most sense, although, cheap bastard that I am, I can't help but think how many farkles and cheeseburgers the $2500 difference between the Triumph and the new DL650 would buy.
But then I'd be back to where I started....
Sigh. Why wasn't I born rich and decisive instead of brilliant, dashing and heroically hung?
Everyone's entitled to my opinion
