That’s what I was kinda thinking with the scooter trailed behind the motorhome but we will seeI was not quite as bad a few years ago, did a few hundred miles on my VFR750. Partly the MH conflict and partly it was a heavy bike for just a quick ride.
So went small and shot up 10,000m a couple of years ago, the excitement was back.
Just bought a KTM Duke 390 so I'll see how that goes this year.
@tacr2man I had a burgman 400 myself for commuting to work so I know what you mean about the little wheels, sold it a few years ago to a fellow motorhomer.
Been there seen it got the tee shirt, do not do it pleeeease! OK, if you must sell it, buy a Kawasaki Z900 RS . It's retro... Suitable for us oldies... but retains Street cred... And you'll be THE KING OF THE ROAD!Get rid of the Ducati you will do far more miles on a scoot with street cred and reliability.
Plus you (we) are all getting older.
Yeah, they seem OK at first. Wait til this time next yearGoodbye BMW R1200RT, hello Honda ANF125 and trailer. Goodbye 700 miles in one year to an average of 3500 per year on Honda. Grin factor from 8/10 to 10/10 and peanuts to run and easy to park. Big bikes are for a certain time in life, step-thru bikes for older limbs when one can't get one's leg over!
I swapped 4 years ago and wouldn't go back to a "big" bike now. I just enjoy the memories of 35 years of big biking and continental touring and was glad I was able to do it.Yeah, they seem OK at first. Wait til this time next year
Never use the side stand on a Vespa GTS 300, it’s not commonly known as the “suicide stand” for nothing!Or have the best of both worlds, keep your bike and have a scooter as well, like I have,
I can happily concur with comments about the Vespa GTS 300, I recently bought one, and find it very practical to use, (apart from the side stand), in fact I am planning a tour in the UK in the spring on mine, horses for courses as they say.
My only problem now is what scooter to carry on my Hydra Trail behind my Motorhome, my GTS 300 or my SH 125!
