Thanks guys & thanks for the jingle Garry.
Figured as much.
I'll just have to find my gonads and put my foot down.
The dillema: sold my LT (baaaad move, in retrospect).
With the whole winter ahead of me for a leisurly shopping time, SHE insisted we get another bike - the Venture. The "cute" friggin' dash and the plush back bench.
Problem is, I just ain't bonding with this bike. Maybe it's all in my head, but, coming off an LT, I find this beast screechy, whiny, sluggish, and so on.
The "she" likes it though. So much so that she suggested I get a second bike while keeping this one for longer trips.
I suppose I should be happy, as this is a full reversal of her bike-thoughts from 20 years ago. (Ya wanna waste money on WHAT????).
The Yammie looks great, and the cassette-deck is state of the art (
) but just not for me.
Thinking about trying a Valkyrie for a bit, but they are few and far between...
