Getting on a new ADV bike vs a first gen VEE is a night and day difference. The new bikes are faster, feel lighter, throttle is smoother, plus things like electronic cruise control, 6 axis traction control, ABS, etc... it's drool worthy!
I want a new Africa Twin something fierce (in that white w/ gold wheels paint scheme). But I think to myself... its 12k for the bike. Then another 4k for bags, crash bars, skid plates, lights, etc... 16k for a new bike. Even if I sell my 05 for 6k, I don't see 10k worth of improvement. So for now, I soldier on with my "lumbering, old school girl"
