With the 'toothpick' side stand, I'm sometimes weary it'll even take take the weight of the bike itself! Let alone my 190lb carcass on top of it. Although I don't run a top case, I'll keep throwing my leg over until age and arthritis gets the best of me :012:
 

I agree with you there  :008:

I guess SWMBO isn't into having 2 street bikes in the shed? I was in your position, kept the naked bike and bought a clean used gtl. Congrats on the GS, great bike

It was more a financial decision for me in reality, I couldnt stretch to owning and running both the R and the GS. We came very close to having another bike in the garage again recently as SWMBO nearly bought a Z650. But then Covid-19 happened and she has been relegated to pillion on the GS again.
