My Wife and I were at our local dealership the other day.
They sell Suzuki, Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, Spyders and some seedoos.
I had a sit on the new 650 and mentioned to my Wife how much lighter it feels compared to the old one. I'm guessing it's not but just feels like it.
We're on good terms with the owner and have done some work for him in the past. He wandered over to say hello and told us the new vstrom is now the best seller in the shop.
Finally as a nation with almost 5% motorcycle ownership, we're starting to realise that liter sports bike might not be the best thing for weekend road use. We see more and more adventure type bikes on weekend rides these
I bought the new aprc Tuono a few months ago. It's a great bike on the track
but shortens my spine by about an inch every time I ride it on the road.
I put about 5 kms on the wee to every one that goes on the Aprilia.
My Wife was in the market for a new bike. She doesn't like twins though, so couldn't convince her on the new "Glee" or what ever it may be called.
We've ordered a new Tiger 1050se in red. Should be fun trying to keep up on the wee. The dealer is looking around for one but we'll probably have to wait till August for one to arrive.
One of these days I'll treat myself to a new 650.
