I have a moto. A BMW R1100GS. I love that thing. I've toured through lots of offroad routes here in my neck of the woods like the Flat Tops, Escalante, tons of passes and tons of short day asphalt tours.
The hair on my neck stands straight up when I start planning a trip, loading the panniers and getting ready for some off road fun. I mean that in a good way.
But my wife isn't a fan. The bike isn't really a two up bike. It's a solo adventurer. She's too short to ride most enduros and she's not really inclined towards moto sports. She's a great cycling and skiing partner ...but not a moto head.
The only thing that bothers me about my bike is that I've never been down hard in the past 11 years. I usually take a riding course every few years. I know that the courses have helped a lot. But eventually, I'm going down. I know this. I wouldn't talk about this on a moto forum because talking about going down with a bunch of moto heads is like talking about butter consumption with a pastry chef ...the response is going to be the same... "what's your point?"
I'm also about to become a dad for the first time in my 43 years of this life.
If I sell the bike, I would walk away with 6K. That's enough to buy another road or mountain bike and then some.
If I sell the bike, I will miss it dearly.
I'm getting pressure from the family. I'm torn.
I need your perspective. What do you think?
