GLWS's! I sure like looking at them but I could no more ride one (ergos) than I could fly to the moon by flapping my arms. I envy some of the bikes the smaller guys with good knees and backs get to ride!
New to me CRF450X. Pretty stoked on this thing!!
I feel your pain my friend! However, I'm 54 y/o, weigh in at 225 lbs, and stand 6'2" tall. Those bikes are not as comfortable to ride, lets say like a Honda Africa Twin, but not as bad like my 96 GSXR1100. I'm fine with riding the Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport for shorter 2-3 hour trips anytime, and I take them out every now and then for day rides in the mountains. I think riding these bikes all depends on the physical shape that the rider is in, so if a rider can't tie his or her own shows without feeling pain in their legs, back, and stomach then this is not the bike to ride. I'm planning on riding my sport bikes for another twenty years..... :) However, I do wish that my arms could grow about a foot in length and my legs shorten about the same for whenever I go on a ride on most sport bikes.
Maybe you could transplant the shins to forearms?
If you ever sold this...I hope you would give me a heads up
Hell yeah, I love to see the Versys out making a name for itself. I’ve always been a Kawi guy but I couldn’t pass up the deal I got on my Honda. Cheers!
This hyper activity has not subsided, I've just arrived home after a 3 day ride with my latest bike, a 1968 BSA Lightning. Again the seller suggested I freight the bike home, but that is like admitting defeat before getting out of the gate. I enjoyed the ride home, Australia is a big country, especially travelling at 50 mph. Apologies to all the traffic I held up, look at that old geezer on the Beezer.
Where did you ride from/to?
Where have you been?
From Lennox Head NSW to Sassafras Vic. I left home at 7.30 am, flew from Melbourne to Coolangatta, travelled down the coast a bit to pick up the bike and hit the road late in the afternoon. I found this spot just south of Casino in the dark and light rain, pitched the tent and hit the sack. I woke up next morning to a beautiful day, unfortunately the weather stayed fine all the way home, further out west they sure do need rain.
