Unsupervised on a Friday.  Looking forward to retirement next year and lots of time to ride so I figured, why not.

Tempting that. Or maybe the TransAlp. Don't believe everything you hear about retirement  though. It's a rigorous grind. You never get a day off.  Lol

Retirement is great.  Work is overrated.

 Twofinger 10 months for me. 12 for some on the west coast. We don't all live in igloos! It will be 95-100 degrees here this week, depending on the smoke. We had 104f a couple weeks ago.

 So what's the verdict Dave? How does it compare to the KTM? Is it good in the gnarly stuff? How is it in the twisties? Will you keep it?  Lol

\\I agree with the above.For me,down in the Greater Vancouver area I can ride pretty much all year, and I do. I do not own a car.Some winters,like this last one we do have protracted cold spells with icy roads and snow, so I did wind up using mass transit, but that only lasted about a month.
