Do you miss your 650R Jon?

Hi Kilroy

In lots of ways I do miss the 650R, they are great bikes.

I don't miss not having a happy button though, no matter what anyone says, starting the motor at the push of a button is awesome compares to having to kick.

The KTM is also much lighter and has better suspension, so is easier to ride in the rocks, but doesn't have the low down grunt of the Honda.

The Honda was also much better when it came to things like fork seals and clutch slave cylinders, KTM is much more high maintenance.

But I am very happy on the KTM, wouldn't go back to a 650R, next bike will probably be a newer KTM500.
How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?
