Hopefully the FTR 1200 will be nestled beside my old Ninja. I hope to hand the Ninja down to my son, I just have to get the wife on board first. She's not optimistic about her baby boy driving a motorcycle. Riding with me is okay, but when he's the driver, she worries. I told her we can enroll the boy in some safety classes first. I guess we'll see.
I plan to sell my old Harley for parts as the poor thing can barely go and it's getting too expensive to have it repaired. Best just to buy a new bike at this point, and I've been lusting after the FTR 1200 S model since I first saw it online. My Jeep will keep it company.
@K9F Nice! I can tell you've taken good care of it.
By the time I get my hands on the FTR 1200 S, I don't think my Yamaha YZF-R3 will be around to see it. The new boy will have to get along with my Carrera Subway then. I used to be a big fan of cycling; I still am, just not as crazy as before.
So since last time I posted in this thread, I have sold both the DR650 and the Ducati, now there's only one bike left in the garage. I consider myself a "two bike" person though. I love working on my bikes and it's always nice to have a second bike when you're working on the other. Been considering a Husky Svartpilen or Vitpilen 701 for a while, espcially the new 2020 Vitpilen.
But every time I ride home from my favorite canyons I'm just thinking what a sweet and awesome bike the FTR is....
