See, I've clocked up nearly 50000km on my beemer... It's been fun (up until the recent electrical issues, which have since been resolved)... and I've really enjoyed it... and now with its new alternator, it's really going quite nicely. But my heart is beguiled by the Triumph 800 XRx - mainly because the seat looks a little lower with a lower seat. (I'm vertically optimised for higher gravity environments (aka short )). It also looks like it'd suit my preferred sort of riding quite well (i.e. longish trips, with some dirt roads thrown in). oh fickle heart!
