At the beginning of this thread somewhere I mentioned that my other bike is a 88 BMW K75c. This bike almost fits me perfectly, little cramped in the knees otherwise great. Little underpowered but very smooth. I loved being able to flat foot, unlike the ST.

I haven’t ridden either bike in about a month. Last time I rode the ST I dumped it, making a U-turn in the middle of a two lane and the pavement was wet, front wheel slid out and slammed me the asphalt. My shoulder is just now getting close to normal. Thought I really screwed it up.
Anyway, this and not riding has given me the itch again. I’ve been drooling for a Triumph Speed Twin but haven’t tried one on for size. Kinda similar to the K-bike fit I assume with more power. Less wind protection and a chain to fool with.

Just need to ride the ST again, that’s usually the cure.

I picked up a 2014 CRF110 and a 2011 CRF70 for the grand kids. 3 of the 7 are now old enough to ride.
Also added a 2014 Honda 4 wheeler for my wife and also use it for building trails here on my place

Of course this gave me a serious case of dirt bike feavor. I ain't getting any younger and I'd like to ride a dirt bike one more time in my life so I found a good deal on a 2019 CRF450L

My Tenere saga started in Aug of 16...travellin to PA to pick up a like new 2013 with 1300 mi & lots of goodies

I owned the 2011 Oui Strom at that time & sold it soon after gettn the Ten.
Then I bought the bumble bee Versys...but jus couldnt call it a honey...so...
Here comes the 2012 Strom to replace the 011
I advertised that Versys forever before trading for a super clean 07 Scrambler...
which I didnt fit very well. But ..it was fun to ride.
A lo mile Husky Terra invaded my garage sometime after the Triumph...& there it stayed...until I fixed a slight oil leak.... It was not fun to work on.
The Scrambler got traded for the Guzzi & I was comfortable again. Man that bike was sporty compared to the Tenere

My 2014 Yamaha WR450 in Big Bend about a year ago.
I wish I could take full credit. I did take the shot but at about 2:00PM with a full sunny day. With Luminar4 one click changed the sky and with a slider I changed the temperature. It turned a nice daytime photo into a cool night shot.

Love the Harley's. Like the Yamaha. Different beasts for different rides. The Yamaha is going to take me to Alaska and back this summer then it may get sold. Maybe.IMG_0008.jpgIMG_0953.JPGNew RK 2.JPG

I have a KDX 200 that my son used to have for a trail bike. It is useful for running up to the headgate on the ditch and turning the water on or off, picking up the mail down at the county road, and riding around at summer pasture to see how the cows are doing. Okay for checking fence too but you have to go back out with a four wheeler to get the work done.
