    Chipper, hope you've got $13.5k in that piggie bank. GO!

    ..Then let me crash it!
    I aready have a deposit on one.
    Dealerships got pricing along with their order forms yesterday. I should have an early one, whenever they show up.
    Best case scenario is may, provided customs can get caught up after a month off, and nothing else goes sideways in between now and then.

    Looks clean and a deal aside from being boarder line literate .

    You should have jumped in front of one and had it kill you before the wedding. At least you would had died by motorcycle on a beach in paradise. Instead of the long drawn out torturist death of passive aggressive behavior by wife.

    Kidding aside congrats and good luck hope she's truly perfect for you.

    I'm truly excited for you. I'm still a little kid when it comes to bikes. If room at my house wasn't an issue and I had more disposable income that bike would be on my short list. We expect pictures and some good write ups on her. Woot woot

    Thanks man.
    I wish I had your enthusiasm.
    I truly am in a motorcycle funk (it could be winter). I hope this puts some of the fun of roaming around and goofing with my friends in the woods back in my life. I can’t even bring myself to race a dirtbike these days, which is really out of character.

    The cruise control definitely appeals to my inner old man.

    Details of the 790 ADV-R seem to be seeping into my psyche through every crevice. 420lbs.. electronic cruise.. 21/18 wheel-set.. Almost enough to make a man regret buying an expensive motorcycle last season!

    Sell and buy. I think the 790R is a keeper.

    I expect the first run of Austrian built ones to sell out quickly.

    I'm incapable. Have to love the one I'm with for at least a few years.. unlike some women I've known.

    On paper this one looks like it really could be the one street bike that nearly does it all for a guy like me.

    You’re incapable?

    I bet you wouldn't buy into an inferior stock and hold onto it for years if the opportunity for better returns existed elsewhere. These bikes, they're just stocks, man.

    I know of at least one instance where you’ve sold a perfectly good motorcycle.

    I know you're busting my marbles, but I do not agree in any way. Some stocks gain value. No motorcycle I've owned ever has.
    Conversely I've never ridden down a country road on a stock and enjoyed the day.



    Had a coffee break convo with a fellow rider and talked about this very subject. My hardly-ableson fits my needs for the foreseeable future. Commuting will probably be 98% of my riding for the next few years. She'll stay. Conversely I have no legitimate need for an overgrown dirtbike in my life right now. And there is some strong evidence that I wouldn't even be able to use it.

    I am busting your marbles, but I'm also not. A motorcycle's value isn't it's KBB published price, it's smiles per miles, my dude. Easy to see in this light how a shiny new 790 adventure R would appreciate in value.
