Ive tried to see the allure of this business of riding a bike with an engine with a limited run time,some run longer,some run shorter. For most ADV riding 12" of travel isnt needed,and hard to make a skinny seated really tall bike very comfy. Even Lyndon with his full tricked 690 bored to even bigger,is stuck with rebuilds top to bottom,he rides it hard and fully expects to rebuild it,sometimes it scatters early anyway. Hes a great and creative wrench. I guess the bikes that can usually run 60 or 70,000 miles seem to make more sense but have no drama built into using them for a long trip.
