Right on Charles, you did the right thing. To this day I regret  
selling my XT 600 and wish I could afford to replace it. Gotta take  
care of the GPz first though.

While it would be cool to have a dedicated tourer, sportbike, and  
dirtbike, having two dual purpose machines (a sport tourer & an  
"enduro") is much more practical for us average joes.

I think you get a couple several punches on your man card for that one!

Twist your wrist and catch some air a few times for the rest of us,  
will ya?
