    There are a few ex demos for around £9.5k I don’t think that’s bad, nearly 3k off new or a quarter of its value

    £9.5k for a second bike is absolute fucking madness for me, I'm having sleepless nights about spending 8k as it is.

    Absolutely and was having this discussion when speaking about it at the weekend, however I need to be 100% sure I'm doing the right thing and of which, right now I'm not.

    I went to look at the RE - before I bought the Triumph - twice the price but ten times the bike... IMO

    The trump does look lovely but as I said above, I'm not paying 10 grand for a second bike, utter madness, particularly since I seem to work more days now and have an other hobby that takes up my time as well, so mileage between two bikes will likely be a lot less than I've done in previous years.

    I'm concerned by the cheapness of the RE overall but pleased by the look and the price. The BMW Scrambler is lovely to my eye but again, all I seem to be reading about is it's shit suspension, it's near 11k new (not that I'm buying new) and comes with shit sussies...WTF.

    I had a BMW Scrambler - the suspension (std) is truly awful but can be sorted for about £800 - this would get you a sorted bike..

    I would worry that the 50bhp of the RE would ultimately become a restriction

    My 47bhp tenere 660 was the best bike I ever owned, had it at the same time I had my TB GS, guess which one I put 3 times as many miles on as the other

    Wildly off topic, but if I had 5k to get a second bike, it would be a late low miles tenere xt660z. Large tanks, not massively heavy, would love to take one on a few short tours.

    Half tempted to get one whilst waiting for the Tiger900 to be available as my 899 goes into semi retirement.

    I bought my 660z with 5k on it for £3500 and it had every possible accessory, kev mods, 1/2/3 stage filters, Hyerpro rear shock, Hyperpro front internals, Akra exhaust, you name it, it had it. The standard 660z needs most of these upgrades to make it run properly.

    I sold it with near 20k on it for......£3500
