We buy things we don't need



With money we don't have



To impress people we don't even like

Agreed that some are, essentially for the fashion-conscious and all bells & whistles must-haves. No problem with that if it's what rings your bell. But you can get many good, honest, new motorbikes for reasonable money such as MT07's/09's not to mention RE650. It's a bit crazy....a 750 was once a big, big bike but now seems to be seen as a tiddler ☺

Thought 13k for the standard Africa twin was a bit steep considering I got my BMW f850gs sport which as tubeless rims, esa, tft, led lights, self cancelling indicators, cruise control plus 3 years warrantee ect for just a little over 11k.

Nope, sorry wouldn't touch it with a barge pole, but as Im rejecting a 2018 ATAS at the moment because, its a death trap and rusting maybe im biased.
