Does it all for me. Until I can afford a kitted up 690 anyway.

Then again, pooling all the funds in to one bike means you can have a better, newer bike, and replace it more often. I'm seeing this in the off-road world, with fellahs selling two older disparate bikes and living with just one newer one to do it all.
yes I suspect the final answer is that there is no answer

Its an interesting conundrum to mull over and over....

In the meanwhile I'll continue to enjoy my 'fleet' for as long as I can afford to.

A nice shiny set of Pilot Road 4's got put onto the sv today.
I might have to go and take the shine off them tomorrow.....
