Then go and enjoy the weekend with the wife. Done. Combined something that seems to be bothering the OP to no end with a weekend in a potentially nice city that was worth traveling there just by itself ...
Oh there you go making sense again.
I still doubt he will be able to do any off road on any test. If I had tried the TriumphXC for a short
ride I don't think I would have been interested. After an hour in the saddle I got use to the seating
and thought "Maybe for this motor I could live with the set/peg relationship.
I also tend to be easily pleased and figure I can tweak most anything to fit if needed. Or just
buy the Tenere and be done.
