Sorry to do this, but my OCD crap is blazing and I am looking for opinions to take or ignore, depending. I am a 6'4", 61 year old rider with considerable riding experience. I have ridden in all states in the US except Alaska, throughout Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, and across Canada. I now ride an average of 6000 miles per year, mostly weekend enjoyment riding in my local area. I live in one of the hottest places in the US, usually within a degree or two of Death Valley and usually a few degrees hotter than Vegas. I have a 30 minute ride to get into the eastern San Diego County mountains and the fantastic roads they contain. I currently ride a 2018 Triumph T120 that fits me pretty well but like I said, I am always looking for the next great deal. I have had cruisers but they mess with my hips and I end up with flexor pain after a couple hundred miles. I have had a R1150GS that was a great bike but not much joy for short runs or rides to work (a strength of the Triumph). My shins are long (24") thus putting my knees high on most tanks and again, giving me hip issues. The Triumph is good for 400 mile days and I have done 600 on it without much discomfort. I went and looked at a R1250R yesterday and found it to be cramped and not as comfortable as my T120. I looked at a nice GS as well but the price is out of line with what I am willing to do. I sat on a nice '20 Tracer GT and found it to fit really well. However, I am not sure I would like it as much as my T120 for much of the riding I do. It's a very polished bike but doesn't seem to have much character. Also, it seems that my T120 is only worth around $5500 in trade despite having the bags, silencers, and suspension upgrades I have added. So, here are the parameters I am looking to click off: Something under $18K Something that will fit my tall frame without tight hip and knee angles Something with a little character Something that doesn't suck around town or out on the highway Something that isn't a huge heat producer, there's enough heat here daily without having more on me. The T120 and my GS are/were good. My Victory and Stratoliner not so much. So what should I consider? Or is my current Triumph the bike I am looking for already? Again, sorry to pass this stupidity on. I venture many of us do the same thing. Thanks!
