I don't travel by motorcycle much because of my work and family circumstances, so I have put my adventure riding dreams behind me for now (1150GS-Adv sold last year, 640Adv sold Saturday-both great bikes). I moved on to a 950SE 10 months ago, with the idea of doing dual-sport and street day-rides, and it may be the most fun of any bike I've ever owned, but it turns out that I'm just street riding it. Rampant development in western NC is eating up all the good dual-sport riding that's within a reasonable day-ride radius of my home. And if I'm honest with myself, I don't find riding a 90+ hp motorcycle on marbles and ball bearings to be fun. The gravel roads that are fun to ride are the ones that need a fresh load of gravel, and NC mountain gravel roads are twisty with tons of blind corners. The SE is fun on twisty pavement, no doubt, but the sticky tires and big brakes of the 990SD and 950SM would give me some headroom, even if I don't pick up the pace. I could get a set of street wheels for my SE, and swap back and forth, but it looks like the dirt wheels would gather dust in the garage. And, the cost of the wheels would be close to what it would cost me to trade up. The 950SM-R would be the obvious choice for me, because every single aftermarket item I've put on the SE would transfer right over (Neptune cans, Renazco seat, CJRacer tail rack, PowerPegz, blah, blah...). But, I swapped bikes for a while with a guy last weekend, and rode his Monster Chromo for a while, and the "sporting" riding position just clicked. More legroom would be better, but the upper body position was perfect. I couldn't help but think how great that Monster would have been with my 950SE motor in it. Well damn, that would pretty much be a SuperDuke! The legroom on the SD is the major concern. I'm 6'4" with a 35" inseam. I know the SM would work, because the ergos are the same as the SE except for the handlebar, and 400-mile days are no problem on the SE. The limiting factor on the SE is butt pain from the sit-up-and-beg riding position. From what I gather, the SD is pretty roomy for a naked sport. I'm not going to get to ride one for long enough (if at all) to tell if it's enough. For reference, my former BMW R1100RS was very comfortable all day. Is the SuperDuke comfortable enough for a big guy to ride all day? Or is the discomfort worth the thrill? Is the legroom difference between the SM and SD really drastic? I'm especially interested in feedback from people who have riding experience on both the SM (or SM-R) and the SD. I'm sold on the LC8 platform, and if I switch bikes, it will be to a KTM v-twin streetbike. Not asking anybody to choose my next bike for me, just gathering data and opinions. Edit: Yes, I know how to use the search function...I've read every SD and SD v. SM thread. Need more discussion.
