IMHO - I'd really try to keep both. The /7 isn't worth *that* much ... It's a great daily driver. That /2 is just drop-dead-gorgeous.

That doesn't look like fun! I would hate to be day dreaming on some harder pack like what is up ahead of that sand pit in front of you there and then dive into some loose crap like that. A 470lb bike is a sand anchor waiting to happen!

Not fun on any road bike, but even worse behind the bars of an RS.
