Two Wheel Passion
I've ridden 3,000 miles on my new motorcycle this year -- and it's not even Spring. I'm on fire!
I'm also contemplating buying another new motorcycle -- a high-performance sportbike to replace my Yamaha which got stolen last year. (It was recovered but is impounded until the criminal case is over. I visited the bike and it was trashed by the thief. I'll sell it when it's released to me.)
For the last decade I've owned two motorcycles at a time and that's a perfect solution. One is a big touring bike for comfort and long-distance rides; the second is a speedy rocket for hooliganism. My new BMW K1600GTL replaces my K1200LT touring bike and I'm going to get a BMW S1000R to replace the Yamaha FZ-1. Different tools for different jobs. You wouldn't bring a school-bus to the race-track and you shouldn't cross the country on an uncomfortable machine.
Life's short. Ride a motorcycle. Or whatever your passion is. By the way, what IS your passion?
