so I have a dilemma. I think I want a second bike. Problem is, the GRiSO as I have it set up now, seems pretty damn great to me. Quick hop to the shops, HB Juniors mounted. Weekend solo trip, a bit breezy but done it. Ride like an arsehat thru the city, guilty. 2 up with the wife out to dinner, yep.
I've only been back on the bike 3 years after a 25+ year absence, so I'm calling myself an advanced amateur and I still don't feel like I can put her thru all she's got. Any Philistine can whack the right wrist. So I'm thinking track time. Not to play boy racer, but to increase my skills.
In my mind, if you track, you will eventually crash. That being said, I'd be quite gutted if my GRiSO hit the tarmac on a track day.
I'm a bigger guy at 6'3" 220lbs and the flexibility of granite. I don't think an R6 or I would get along. In fact, I don't even want that because I want something more like my GRiSO.
I was thinking about an older KTM Supermoto, Dorsoduro or even a first gen Tuono.
Then I think I have two bikes that are too similar. Anyone here ride a big Katoom or first gen Tuono? Either can be had for a song nowdays.
Then I think F'it. Get a Multistrada, Capo or Super Adventure for the touring and when I need hard bags and thrash the GRiSO.
This is more of a 6am coffee rant, but what the hell.
