    Both small underpowered dual purpose street legal, no brainer w/FI, easy and must to tinker, rugged with straps to hold doors for instance, but excellent japanese engeneering and quality.

    I think I have them - 1987 BMW R65, and a 1994 Mercedes C220.

    LOL, just what I was thinking. Maybe a Subaru, just not THAT Subaru.

    I wish we could get those here in the US. I've had 3 increasingly aged Suzuki Sidekicks and love them for their durable simplicity, but it would be nice to have something a bit newer.

    Ducati Monster M900 → Honda S2000


    At least, when I owned both I liked the same roads. I would ride the Ducati on an interesting road and want to come back and try it in the Honda. And when I was on a good road in the Honda I would want to come back on the Ducati. I occasionally actually did that, taking the same road in both, one after the other.

    I can't find a good match for my current Mustang convertible or KTM 990 Adventure.

    The garage way back when I had other vehicles:

    I would say the Super Tenere is more full size Toyota Land Cruiser. Big, rugged, relatively simple, and just plain old gets the job done without any complaint.

    Both small, efficient, underpowered, and very stylish in a retro way.

    Aprilia Dorsoduro and the Lamborghini Urus. Both are exotic Italian, can go off road, but shine best on tarmac. I have also seen the same number of them driving around: zero.
