I know the first sign of old age is loss of memory, but I forgot the second one. I purchased a V Strom in November, and evey time I ride I think of selling my CBR. I rode dirt alot when I was younger, and all my steet bikes have been sport bikes until now. I don't know if it's the rainy weather or the fact that the CBR sat waiting for clip ons for a month, but I am losing the desire to ride it as much. I am currently only 1000 miles short of my total milage for all last year. I still enjoy riding my CBR, but I don't crave it. The fact is the DL is good enough to handle the twisties very well, and is actually more fun at a safer street speed. I find myself enjoy riding in the rain and the only thing I seem to desire when on the DL is a more dirt friendly mount. So what do I do? Should I sell my CBR, that I have finally got set up the way I like it, and replaces it with a dual sport? Or should I keep it and just enjoy it for what it is? I'm afraid that if I make this move I'll be kicking myself in the ass in a month. Maybe part of my problem is that I'm sick of the public perception of the so called crotch rockets, and the riders that help support the stereotypes. I put close to 500 miles on, in the rain, this weekend, and I only saw one sportbike out. This was this afternoon, a young couple both wearing tanktops and shorts, it was pouring rain at the time.
