what is your other bike(s)?

if you have more than 1

2015 aprilia caponord 86,000 miles. ready to start a nose to tail refresh. probably keep it.

2008 aprilia mana 47,000 miles. the most recent commuter. great bike but expensive to operate as a 20k/year commuter due to maintenance costs. will do a refresh and sell it.

My '15 V650 and this '84 XR350R. I'm really liking the Versys, but the old Honda is still my favorite.

As hard as I try, I just can't keep it down to one bike in the stable.

2018 Versys 300X ABS
2014 Honda NC700X
2012 Suzuki Burgman 400A

I sold my 2000 Electra Glide and my 2012 Sportster 1200C earlier this year. I am staying with relatively smaller displacement from now on, although 700cc is not small and when I started riding in 1963 700 cc was considered a very big bike.

Is that "in case I go", or "in case I HAVE to go to Mexico"?

I do have a hankerin' to go for a long ride down(over) there.
Unlike almost all of my other traveling, This definitely will not be a solo trip. The challenges of finding compatible co-riders is daunting.

I may just wind up doing a MC tour package, however.

Some days are better than others, Eddie! This year we’ve been so busy in the studio developing some new technology and with me getting ready to release another book that we haven’t even been filming in the field yet. More like Warp 0!

Ironically the book is about inhibiting anxiety and stress and nature as a drug. Getting my scientist/nerd on. Sure could use a nice ride in Canada right about now!

I like to come here and live vicariously through the adventures of all of you!

2003 KLR 650 - Big bore to 685, oversize stainless valves, minor port & polish, and too many other farkles to ever want to sell her. Love it for backcountry camping trips

2012 Yamaha WR250R - for tighter trails and trailering a few states away to explore offroad

Way too many photos of all 3 bikes on my Instagram 'asphaltaddict33' its 99% bikes and wrenching, and sometimes other outdoor activities like hiking or whatever
