When I realized my riding style (and my available time for longer trips) shifted to more dirt, less touring, I sold my 1200GSA for a smaller bike. In my head I went round and round between an 800 and a HP2, I could get a brand new 800 for the same price as a well equipped, low miles HP2.

The final choice came down to the wet clutch (and the hopes of a recluse at some point) and 2up comforts of the 800gs.

I'd love to ride a HP2 at some point, but then I'd be wanting to trade off the 800!
