My eyes deceive me. Weird how the front wheel looks so much bigger on the rally bikes.

stay away from the sick vrotties - 99% of them are totally shagged - truly horrible bikes

the old carb fed LC4 motors are terrible  :pot:

:spitcoffee: "sick vrotties"

Yeah I'm not touching carbs. I'd be interested in an XRL if they were fuel injected.

Do you mean the non-690cc FI motors are also truly horrible bikes?

The LC4 engines with FI as fitted to 690 endures are much better, smoother and more powerful - I like those

The 640 engine in the sick vrottie adventure is kak - I know of so many that were broken early on - I believe these engine have a poor oil circulation system and this is what caused so many top end failures and camshaft related problems

I've lost all respect for you with this statement.  :patch:

My LC4 640 has done 5,000km and still very little problems!  :imaposer:

Here you go, spend the extra bit:


The 650 Terra is not a bad suggestion, but the numbers point to it being a bit cramped for my long legs. I won't write it off though.

That said, if I had that kind of money I'd be aiming at a 990. If it's a consideration then maybe I can just re-sell the extras I don't need like the GPS.
