Holy crap! Way to go man! Are you done with touring? Or going back to the 7 for tour duty?Uh-oh! Here's the front runner for new bike. Rode it today. Zero miles. You want to talk about a fun and PURE motorcycling EXPERIENCE. I'm a relative novice, but hopping on this thing for the first time and riding was as natural as anything. Holy smokes! The power and the sound. Unbelievable. I'm not on the fence... Maybe one or two other bikes I want to try out. I want exotic, exciting, and lightweight.
BTW... I was pleasantly surprised at the comfort on this bike. Yes, Super Duke has more room and is more upright, but the styling turns me off. I got to sit on but not ride a Duke GT. Still leaves me cold. We'll see.

Today I sat on the BMW adventure bikes, looked at the Africa twin and sat on the super tenere again.
I love the Trophy for touring, but the great weather protection also makes it a very hot ride 6 months out of the year.
