I feel really torn. I have a 07 950SMR with 5k miles (i put it in the classifieds to see what feedback i would get) I moved to LA Xmas of last year having spent the last 10 years only riding in London (city riding) I got introduced to Malibu Canyons in January (when i had a Bonneville- dont ask) I sold the Triumph and bought the 950fully stock, since then i have put a couple of grand into exhausts, seat, etc..and i may put more money into other after market things i have.. Here is the issue though I REALLY don't care for the lack of fairings I REALLY would like something that can go off road as well 2 UP is really not comfortable for my gf on the SM I could not have known these things when i moved here, however as i have been riding the last year I am getting a feel for what sort of riding I would like to get into out here and what riding is possible. (I didn't have the options to do this in London) I would like to do longer trips (which i struggle to do on the SM) I would like to go offroad (not hardcore but be able to mix it up) I would still like to go to the Canyons The idea of simply having the big windscreen blocking the wind from pushing me back seems awesome, then having the crash bars to attach aux lights and do more..adventure riding seems great..cause i feel like i am trying to turn my SMR into an ADV now and that seems futile and expensive I hear the carb'ed ADV models are better than the Fi which seems to be a trend of thought. So i really think I could make the swap pretty easy.. What are your experienced thoughts?
