If my butt likes the Africa Twin the Versys is out the door....if it does not, then a GS is likely in my future....nothing wrong with moving on as your tastes change.
I still ride and love my XT225, and it is a great county highway (55mph) bike with a simple sprocket change. 6 gears and it just putters down the road no trouble at all....feels like riding a mountain bike I love it. I rode sub 650 bikes till I got my DR650 (about 30 years) and anyone that says they can't get on the highway and move along at 10mph above the posted speed limit with not a care in the world is full of it. Check out any of the books by Lois Pryce, she has ridden across Africa, from Alaska to the tip of Argentina all on sub 250cc motorcycles, for people to say it is at the top of its RPM range is pure mis-information. I know people that commute every day on the highway from the 'burbs in hot-lanta (thats Atlanta) on these old school XT225, air cooled and never have a problem....plus they just wheel them into the warehouse downtown and there is no worry about the bike getting stolen or paying for parking.
I freely admit I love little bikes and little cars, I have two sub 1L cars, and it is really different riding and driving smaller machines, you move around a great deal more....and at times you just have to settle in and enjoy the ride.....that is what it is all about anyway.
Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant'
is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist'
