Seems to me that much of this thread is the same old story, folk seeking validation for decisions already made - by decrying other approaches.
Even if I could afford every last bell and whistle on my boat (and added another 10 foot to accomadate?!), I wouldn't..........For much the same reason as I wouldn't tack a sidecar onto my Triumph. Would add a load more practicality (at times) and be "safer"
- but (for me
) kinda misses the point of having a motorcycle.
Different strokes for different folks I guess
