about apples and oranges. You may be how one could even mention of these iconic motorcycles in the sentence, but have no fear I’m going to tell you. You see way when I was a younger man, I was you’d call a motorcycle I road everyday, year weather be damned to the tune of 12-15k per year.

I was the motorcyclist you fun of when it rained, and I was the guy you cursed I blazed by you on one wheel on the highway. was a time when I had 5 bikes and 1 truck which was only for the purpose of motorcycle transport I was either hitting the track or the As with everything in life priorities change and life on.

As it stands I haven’t owned a since 2005 and truth be I am getting VERY itchy.

a bike is an experience like no and as of yet I have found no other of motor sport that me the same type of enjoyment. In the of this article I mention two machines – the visually stunning 916 and the do it all two-wheeled Hummer, the Kawasaki KLR 650. One is a carving scalpel and the other is a army knife and at some in time, each one had a home in my

Like I said, I’m now getting for another bike and these are the two narrowed it down to. Keep in that whichever machine out they’re both going to be as mild recreational vehicles. my knee dragging days are me, the Ducati would simply be for the occasional Sunday morning run the big chunky KLR having the same albeit the occasional trail thrown in for good measure.

The con’s are that it is mechanically and expensive to maintain, it has terrible mileage and after about an of riding your back is It is however a Ducati and I’ve one again ever since I my 1996 model.

So with all of the above being what do you all think? Both will satisfy my urge to again but they’ll do so in very ways. Keep in mind I DO NOT want to go out and purchase anything so don’t give me suggestions for rides. It’s a choice these two and that’s it.

Either way I’d like to buy one in the not too distant but I’m curious to know your as to which way you’d go.
