I was passing by an RE dealership right as they were opening and...

... decided to pop in for a gander at an INT650.

Then I swung a leg over it.

I just sat there for a bit, luxuriating in it's old-school goodness whilst chatting with three of the cats who work there.

A couple of weeks ago I paid off the Himalayan I bought in August so my saving grace was that they didn't have the MKII or Sunset Strip colorways. The Baker Express I sat on did look sexy as hell, though.

I shouldn't do that again, lest they have a MKII od Sunset Strip on the floor.

Do it, do it now, tomorrow never comes.
Enjoyed the Himmy, but a lot of my journeys are on motorways, which didn't suit the bike, problem is a lot of my journeys were around town which the Himmy excels at.
So I booked a test ride on an Interceptor and a Triumph T100. Took the test ride on the Interceptor and signed the paperwork when I got back, I'm sure that the T100 is a nice bike but ......
Biggest regret is losing the Himmy, but I can only store one bike, maybe I should have kept the Himmy outside and just used her for local runs - too late now.

I've bought 4 bikes from dealers over the years because I actually looked around rather than just buy some oil or whatever. 3 didn't last, the best was a 2nd hand Guzzi EV. I did thousands of miles on it and never regretted my impulsiveness with that one.

The Ducati has almost six timers the power of the RE.
Thats like comparing a Ferrari to a Yugo.

Comparing an RE Himalayan to a Yugo is like comparing F-150 4x4 to a wheelbarrow.

Comparing an INT or Continental to a Yugo is like comparing a Cessna Skyhawk to a paper kite.

Comparing the Classic 350 to a Yugo is like comparing a Jon Boat to a float tube.
