To mix things up a bit thought I'd start a thread on the other bikes your garage, or better yet a picture of them out in the wild. Commentary if you wish on why you keep it around given you have a GS/GSA.

Mine is a 2017 DR650. Bought it because I found off-pavement on the GS enjoyable but needed something to hit an occasional sine track and I could drag out of a mudhole should I get in over my head. The DR is heavier than many dualsports but wanted the power on the highway as the local dirt spots are an hour away. Love the pure simplicity of it, has its own character.

I had a BMW K1600 GT which I absolutely hated and traded it in on my 1250GS. My Busa is hand built (mostly by me in my garage) and she is an incredible beast. It's a 2009 I bought new and it has 40K miles on it. It has ohlins suspension, Brembo Gp4 brakes, Yoshi full exhaust, CoreMoto wheels and custom paint designed by me. No stretching for my Busa, she is a very capable turner too!

It was my pups 1st birthday present.

Wished I would have known the power of hauling a pup around in a hack when I was single :)

This is the one I smashed in 2018. Another white K1600GT.
Well glad you are ok that looks like a good smashing. I must admit I would have been glad to total my K1600GT! Trade in on a 1-1/2 year old bike with 6K miles was less than half what I had in it. My first experience with BMW was quite a nightmare. This one however (1250) is going fantastic!

2019 DRZ-400S for building confidence learning off pavement.
Traded in a 2005 DRZ for this new one in February and promptly fractured my Tibia Crown at Big Bend on my first ride. This pic is bringing it home from dealer; has been farkled since.
