Good question. This is something we really thought about but eventually found that there wasn't one bike that fit our different size, riding style, gear carried, and desire. I figure that at least we're on two bikes so the chances of us both breaking down simultaneously are slim. We will both be on Japanese bikes that have been around for a while so finding places to get them worked on & parts should be fairly easy.
