Thinking of going ADV style
Like a Tiger Explorer 1200
Keeping my 919 of course, but the idea of having a shaft drive and all the other goodies is pretty tempting, not to mention the bump absorbtion on our ever increasingly bumpy and not gettin' any smoother US paved roads.
My question is, when ridden at a brisk pace, will I be let down coming from sport bike and the sweet handling 919? I know ADV bikes are not canyon carvers but I still don't see how they can't be a hoot with sport-touring tires mounted, and on certain roads even [I]more[I] fun. But I've never pushed one very hard and only test ridden a Multistrada around a short loop for 10 minutes so it's hard to say. Thoughts?
