Yes. I traded it in. I couldn't swing the nut on the new bike out of pocket nor justify borrowing money to add another bike. So far, I'm not regretting anything.

That makes sense. Glad you're enjoying it, it looks fantastic!

Maybe this whole "not watching the news" needs a re-think. local news link In any case... my earlier wall of text stands. This bike is THE bike. You would think a 160HP 1L motor would be a handful in the wet but it's not. It's so linear that you can play with traction limits or just have traction. It needs hand protection in the rain. Wet is cold. I'm off to the internet to acquire some since BMW thinks they cost $154 + 90/hr labor. I expect comp accessories $79 bark busters and 10 minutes of my time will solve the problem.

That thing is ten different kinds of gorgeous!

I'm a little jealous, tbh... I'm gonna go wrench on my 47 y.o. Dinosaur now...

All good.

I wish I could get those kind of miles in. I'm on mine almost every single day and am only at a little over 5k. It'll be a year in August.

In reply to Nick (Bo) Comstock:

I've had a bunch of trips for both work and play all piled up in a short period. The mileage this year is a bit high for my normal M.O. I'm a 10k/yr average on paper.

I rode 800 miles since yesterday AM going to/from a customer. It would have been 500 in a car. But, the bike's gps is set to curvy roads, avoid interstate. B-)

Tomorrow's agenda: mow lawn. Ride until dark. By Monday... That's a big total for the week.
