Both good bikes, just designed for different applications. Each has good and bad points.
We have somewhat similiar tastes

My 950 SE

Oh and a wee KLR 685

Sadly sold my 2006 540 KTM but replaced it with something fun and a whole new direction. It doesn't suck at all. Just putting some finishing touches on it now.

990r and Futura seems to be a good combo

Try riding a 1200GS through the woods...

And a 450 XC-W is a light weight, nimble, rock climbing, tree dodging scalpel.

Yes, that is a bash guard strapped to the top of the pile on the back of the pig. And that was a GOOD, CHEAP day in the woods. The expensive day was when both Vario cases got broken off in separate wrecks (and I had to go BACK down the trail about 3 miles when the post-crash retaining strap burnt through, the case fell off, and I didn't notice). The same ride also cost me a winglet and a blinker, and then the zipper on my whale foreskin lined BMW jacket got crushed between a rock and the bike rendering it inop. Of course I wasn't wearing the jacket when I went down the second time resulting in some rock rash. And I still had a 2-hour ride home on the slab...



At the end of that trip I said "Self, there has got to be a better, cheaper, less likely to end up stranded miles away from civilization when I am too tired to lift 500lbs of motorcycle for the fifth time today -- maybe a teeny KTM bike..." And then the wife agreed...



So the GS is the "daily driver" and long haul specialist (since I fixed the luggage) and the 450 is strictly for off-road (until I can install a dual sport kit.) I am keeping the TKC-80s for the Beemer, just in case I need to carry my entire family to the hills to escape from the zombie apocalypse.

Well, right now, there is a Ducati S4 916 sitting there, up until the 950 SM came along, it was the funnest bike I'd ever owned, lightweight, pretty good power, wheelies and spins the tire coming off of corners, stops good too. There was a Sportster I owned for a while, piece of crap. Wasn't fun to ride. Slow as fuck. Didn't stop well. Didn't turn well, actually didn't hardly turn at all. But my wife "wanted a Sportster". She didn't put 5 miles on it in a year. Now she thinks that Ducati is hers.

Been a lot of stuff over the years. I sold a KZ1000 about a year ago. DR350, it sucked. YZ450F, good bike. Traded that off. YZ250 2 stroke, wish I still had it, might buy another one if I can find the right deal.

Oh, I've got a 1970 CT-70 that I ride almost every day. I had one in 1971, and found one just like it. Brings back big smiles and good memories.
