    2018 Goldwing Tour for me, good for those long comfy trips.

    Very Nice Choice...

    I did not race or track my 87 VFR400R but liked it a lot on our local twisty roads. Pretty rare here in the USA

    It’s my second one bill, sold my 1st one in 03.

    The XSR900 shares the garage with my old 2000 Hayabusa, which is pretty much on the opposite side of the cycle spectrum compared to the XSR.

    This heavy, hot FJR can eat a fast mile. Also will smoke the FZ in high end and won't leave you feeling beat at the end of a 400 mile day. The light FZ is a fun, fast, reliable commuter with easy parking, not much plastic to take off for maintainece, and does not have those pesky rider aids.

    Oh, not an XSR, but does have a triple

    Here’s an alternative you might not think of. I rediscovered small bikes a couple of years ago and picked up a Versys 300 and a Duke 390 to go with my FZ09 and R1200RT. I have as much fun on the little bikes as I do on the big ones.....03AF0116-4AC2-480D-8329-3C06A548F07F.jpeg

    I have a Honda PCX150 that I use for popping around on, 40l top-case fitted.

    Its just very convenient for shopping.

    Only thing to check between 6000km service is tire pressure and that's that.
