I'm headed back to CO this summer and the Speed Triple just ain't the bike for me for that trip.
Also (and to a larger degree in a way) because my eight year old absolutely loved riding in the mountains last Fall on a buddy's ST1300. I want him to enjoy riding as much as I do, and the little back seat on the 1050 S3's doesn't inspire me to put him on the back of it.
So I'm either going to sell the Triumph or best case scenario would be to find an old ST1100 for *cheap* and use that for my much loved big trips and ride the Triumph all over the Southeast.
So your looking for a "sport tourer" .. shy not the Sprint GT?
