Bit of coincidence. I recently went to Ky/ southern Indiana for some genealogical research and a bit of light touring. My internal debate was to take either the R75 or the W since they were the lightest of my bikes. A 3/4 Ton truck sits so tall that loading/unloading is a bit of a high wire act. I ended up taking the W650. Really enjoyed the W while doing backroads in Kentucky near the Ohio River, but I missed the R75’s relaxed pace on the more open roads in Indiana. I still think a light overdrive 6th gear on the W650 would have been a good idea. Overall, it was a good couple of days. Weather was outstanding, highs in the low 70’s. Sorry I didn’t take better pics.
