Nice bike, but Supermoto it is not.

Not that my opinion is worth a penny more than you offered for it, but I'd keep the Nomad. They're both heavy pigs. If I recall from some of your other posts, your wife loves the Nomad.

He really needs a bigger garage so he doesn't have to trade them off.

After a 400 mile trip on a naked 4cyl 600, now I understand why people
generally tour on liter+ 4cyl or twins, so:

This:

Got the itch for something. I absolutely love my Tenere, but it's so damn serious if you know what I mean. Every ride I take is not a trip to Alaska or Tierra del Fuego.

I'm thinking a SV650 would go along nicely in the garage. Great engine for real riding, light weigh, low maintenance, cheap. Did I mention cheap. Perfect for day rides on the street when I don't need crash bars and luggage. Of course the DRZ would have to go first, but it only got about 1400 miles on it last year, so it might as well go anyway.

Damn motorcycles are addictive.

Well, my Transalp was supposed to be my " no matter what " runner so I could still ride whilst rebuilding my CB500k, but it's not working out that way. Spring maintenance has revealed some trouble and so I again am wishing for a dead reliable, ride anywhere bike that doesn't overlap much in purpose with my other bikes (transalp and 500k).

This is really tempting:


I did some rough mathematics and figured that if I drive this 33% of the time, the money I save on gas over driving the cage will pay for the bike in 4 years. Not perfect math but hey it's called rationalization.
I have had a strange desire to own a fully fared sport bike for a while now, but one that I could use all the power. The more I look at and read about this bike, the more I want it.

I have one. It's a blast. One of funniest bikes I have owned. Riding WOT all the time and shifting constantly. Do fun. Feels like you're racing on a track even though you're doing the speed limit and driving safely.

For me, a brand new one was cheaper then gas in my old crappy grand cherokee. Now my wife rides it but I steal it often!

I'm about 6' and it fits me well. Very comfortable.

Even after reading bad review after bad review, I can't shake it. Not only expensive but typical of Ducatis would take a pretty penny in the aftermarket to get it right. But still can't shake it. Glad my dealer doesn't have their demo anymore or I might be tempted to make this mistake.
