Peering into the future, I'm expecting to replace my current bike within the next three or four years. So I'm looking for ideas. I've favored sporty bikes up to now, but I'm facing some limiting factors. First, it absolutely must be able to carry some luggage. A laptop plus other work-related stuff (books, papers, folders and so forth). Side bags might work, but I've seen what some companies consider side bags: lunch boxes strapped to the sides of the pillion seat. Second, I'm not buying a dresser or some giant beast of a bike.
So. The Japanese give me supersport tourers or Gold Wings, BMW has all but abandoned any reasonable touring bike. I've seen a few possibilities at Triumph, but am I missing anything else?5 AnswersMotorcycles1 decade ago
