Are you sure she's talking about the bike?
What was wrong with the Husky?
I have a multi 1200 and was thinking the same thing. I have a wr250x that I pretty much converted to dirt duty (basically trashed) and was thinking a bigger supermoto ala the husky sms630 or a ktm 690 would be just the ticket.
i really think that is NOT the stelvio pass..... for sure!
just for you to know... but i would love to know where that is!
The Husky is light and flickable, but I have been spoiled by torque. I feel like I am strangling the Husky even with some of the mods I have done. I've never ridden a 690 (Duke or SMC) so that may be a more powerful single to consider. I'm definitely now leaning towards a v-twin or triple for some character and more power.
I just ran across a used 2011 Triumph Tiger 800XC, 1200 miles, $8999, at a shop about an hour away. So tempted.
Do it !!! :d
You're not helping my willpower!
In doing a lot of rotations for my Physical Therapy program, I spend time with people in geriatric care. Never seen a guy in a home yet who wishes he'd bought less motorcycles and ridden less.
He, or she, might be out there. But, if they are I bet they also argue that beer is the devil's drink and that women should cover their ankles.
Today, well this week, is all about a 2 bike combo: CT110, and Blackbird. I don't have a freeway commute anymore so I don't have any decent reason for the Blackbird, but I really liked them when they came out and now I'm seeing them on craigslist for 3-4.5k, which seems like an amazing amount of bike for the money.
The CT110 is justifiable in so many ways: cheap, keeps miles off my XR650R for running around town, small and approachable enough that my wife is considering learning how to ride if I get one.
I have added a 4th bike to my list (mine dont change on a regular basis)
and to make things worse their are 2 for sale near me, a beautiful clean 1979 one for $2100 and a not so clean 1978 one for $800 but I know that I can't own a second bike right now. Not enough time or money plus Im still in college.
I really want a desert sled.
After 20+ years of riding, I want one of these........
I'm starting do some longer multi day tours and I need comfort, but still want a bike that can handle well. I found a nice 2007 at my local dealer and really want to get it. All I have to do is convince the household Opposition Minister. I think I may go test ride it and just bring it home for her to see, then do a lot of begging and pleading. I don't think I'll get bored this bike.
Good luck Nova Boy. I think the STs are cool too. I may, just may replace my VFR with one. My VFR is tired at 100K. A fellow commuters ST feels like it just stepped off the showroom floor and it has 120K and d if anything it's had less care than my bike. They're big and heavy but comfortable and really agile for their size.
ST's remind me of a warm blood horse or vintage Jaguar, bigger than they should be but pretty good at anything you want to do with them..
Was piloting my Connie down I-83 the other night after a great moonlight ride around Loch Raven. I'm zipping along and one of these walks past me;
.....now I'm pricing one.
...and i'm sure your ass will disown you after two minutes of riding it. do you see that seat? ick! everything else looks dreamy!
Already have it!
I'm well satisfied with the one I already own. It serves all my needs. It's an ordinary Goldwing 1800.
Just picked this up last week:
