This will be my 3rd bike. My first was a 2017 R Nine T, f* beautiful bike, both aesthetically and mechanically. Very simple, not much electronics to give you headaches which is good imo. But then it wasn't very confortable to travel, even if it was just for a couple hundred kms. I would have kept it if I have space and money to have more than 1 bike, but I don't. So I got the 1250GS a while after selling the R NineT. A masterpiece of enginnering, but quite ugly if you ask me (a subjective matter I know). It's functionality hides, for me, a bit of that ugliness but I need to have a big smile on my face once I leave it on the garage after a joyous ride and that didn't happen. That coupled with the lockdown and the perspective of having a bit of money "stuck" on something I don't use made me sell it. I don't regret the decision. I have a friend and coworker which is also very much into bikes. He has a Ducati S4 and a Triumph Scrambler 900 and wanted to sell the triumph and buy a 1260S / 950S. He called me yesterday saying he just bought a used 1260S in black! Got me itching to find the bike I want. The market is not very good around europe, not many bikes to choose from. I'll wait patiently, eventually some nice opportunity will come up, maybe in 6 months or so people will feel more confortable trading their 1260s for the new V4s (that's what I'm hoping at least). I would like to keep it for longer than the other 2! Your bike is really awesome AdvStrider, wouldn't add/take out anything on it. Made me want one even more! As for the rider height, I'm 180cm so I hope it's a perfect fit. But then again i've been riding (every once in a while) a Vespa 150 with 40y and an Honda CG a little younger and feel great riding those smaller engines and tech absent bikes!
