Yeah man, I get it. The grass is always greener! I'm exactly the same, which is partly why I do the PCP thing.
I suspect like you, I can't afford a garage full of bikes (as much as we'd all love to
) so whatever bike I have has to be able to do it all, and take the abuse.
I'm now half way through my mileage quota and similar way through the time I want to spend with the bike (I rarely have them longer than two years, due to mileage mainly, but also some shroud financing) and i'm already struggling with what bike I'd like next!!
I'd like to stay brand loyal, so i'm thinking either Ninja 650, although I've read that it's more of a young mans bike or A2 licence. The Z650, which is the same but slightly better proportioned I think. And the Z900, which I love but I'm afraid for my liscene / helath if I have another faster bike.
I landed on the Versys after a painful and expensive lesson learned on a Z1000SX.
(still my favorite bike so far)
However, the new Yamaha MT07 / Traceer 700 looks nice and the MV Tourismo Veloce 800 could steal your heart ( and wallet). The Triumph Street Triple / Tiger 900 could always be s how stopper too.
You see my problem......
I'm glad you took the plunge with the rad guard, you won't regret it.
I haven't done anything with the V, I got the GT model so it came pretty much with everything needed and the dealer threw in Oxford heated grips. The only thing I have done is added the rear break lights into the top box too. How are you finding them?? Mine are broken already and
If I was keeping the V (It's a great bike, with plenty of real world speed, without being license shredding. Comfortable and very useable)
My list would be....
Rad guard (irony I know)
mud flap / huger
font wheel mud guard extender thingy
Tinted short screen for summer
Tall touring screen for winter (although the OEM screen is actually quite good)
The list for the SX would be even longer
