Hey guys, wasn't sure where to post this so I decided here was as good as any... What to get next? Just looking for thoughts and ideas here. No right or wrong answer and all ideas are welcome. I currently have an 09' Ducati Multistrada 1100S. I like the bike and it is great on the blacktop but I would like something different. I have had a fair number of bikes over the years and I have come to the conclusion that an adventure or adventure-style machine seems to work the best for me. I really don't do long-distance rides, or I should say very rarely. Most of my riding is commuting here and there. Playing on the backroads around the home. I like to explore when I can. If the current ride will allow, no dirt road is left unridden. My wife, which is rather small, enjoys riding with me when she can and so does my daughter. The wife and I will try to make a run up to the mountains once a year for a weekend of exploring. I really don't ride enough to justify owning a bike at all but actually my really enjoys us having one and I am planning on doing more riding in the near future. So here are some of the rides I am considering..... - A new KLR650. I have looked around for used and there are plenty of them out there but for what people are asking for the beat-up bikes, I think I would prefer to just grab a new KLR. I kind of like the simplicity of the bike and I think the changes they have made to the new one will make for a decent ride. When a nice used KLR does come up, they seem to be way overpriced or they sell really fast. - A new Tenere 700. I have not seen a new T7 in person yet. I talked to a dealer today and they have gotten in a few. He said they sell in less than a day of sitting on the floor. He has another coming in a few weeks and will call me when he knows an arrival date. I do like the versatility of the T7. It seems like a bike that I could do just about anything with. From my reading and talking, I think a simple seat swap and a rear rack would be about all I would need to do to it. Having grown up on dirt bikes, this bike really does appeal to me. - A new BMW F750GS. I started to consider this one but for some reason, it just doesn't really seem to do it for me. Can't really explain why but I am still trying to give it a chance. I would prefer the base bike but my local dealer says he would have to special order a base bike. All the ones they get are bikes with lots of options so I know the price will jump considerably. - A new Triumph Tiger 850 Sport. This bike really seems to catch my eye. I did have a 2011 Tiger 800 before and there were only a few little things about it I did not care for. And actually, I could have corrected those if I had kept it longer. I did enjoy the motor in that bike a lot and my wife really liked it too. At first, I did not like the idea of the Sport but the more I study it, the more I think it would work out well. My local Triumph dealer is great and he has a few of them on the floor now. The new Sport Feels pretty nice to me and I kind of like the simplicity of the machine. - There is an 09 BMW G650 GS in my area that is in really good condition and only has 1700 miles on it. It also has crash bars and BMW hard luggage as well. This is another one that catches my eye and I am kind of drawn to it. Normally I would not consider new bikes but I am not finding very many used rides that catch my eye right now. A lot of the fun for me is finding decent deals on used bikes, TLC the hell out of them and then sell them after a year or so. Only to do it all over again. But lately, I am getting to where I kind of want to find a good ride, maybe a new one, set it up for how I will use it, and keep it for a while.
