    Twas very amicable, realized we were two different pieces of two different puzzles.

    Either are great options, They really didnt make any changes from 2015 on as far as anything running gear related. I will say, the 2016 yellow, under 1k miles means it has sat A LOT. Not something id be too fond of, if it had an extra 0 at the end that would be ideal. That 2019 is a fantastic deal as long as the title is clean! (and you can live with the minimal scratches and the slight melt on the top of the dash from the windscreen).

    For either of those at a minimum, Full brake fluid flush front and rear with ABS cycling, clutch fluid, coolant, oil, and rear gear oil. All of which are easy to do.

    ES vs non ES. I hardly ever touch the "clicker" settings on my ES suspension, and preload on the rear shock only changes if I have a passenger which has been less than a handful of times. Needless to say the ES suspension while nice is absolutely NOT a deal breaker for me at least, not having the ES opens you up to more aftermarket support as well as less complexity. Heated grips are SO NICE and on that 2016 all the wiring and control is already there, if you wanted heated grips you can buy them plug them in and the option on the dash will show up.

    Doing fine, definitely an adjustment after living together for almost 4 years but its for the best for both parties. We still chat so its not like things ended bad at all.

    I think you will see deals get more n more better in the coming months. Those two bikes you listed would of been easily 12-14k$ a year and a half ago around down here in southern california when I bought my 2015 super tenere , thats one of the main reasons I flew 1200miles away to middle oregon to pick up the one I got. (2015 ES w/ 22k miles, 2 givi gases, givi crash bar, skid plate for 9.2k)

    Howd it go? I carry "everything" needed to swap / patch a tube on my WR450 on a front fender bag nearly all the time, but man I feel like its going to be kinda a pain out in the sticks without lube for the tire.

    EDIT - (I rock 12psi front 10 rear, shinko 216mx fatty front, kenda trackmaster 2 rear with UHD tubes and over many many years have never had an issue even in the VERY sharp volcanic rocks found here in southern california *knocks on wood*) I have had tubliss guys struggle to keep pressure and moose friends have shit disintegrate on them... they all carry a front tube (which can be used in the rear) regardless of setup.

    Its not that bad at all.... TBH the WORST tires I have ever done are grom sized rim (12in) tires. Anything larger is pretty easy, especially 18in+ street tires.

    Can't like this but have lived it a few times.

    Ever seen a doctor about it or is this new to you? I was diagnosed with arthritis in my lower back and hips years ago. Not much they can really do other than pain meds as needed, rest, and try to do stretching exercises on a daily basis to keep it loosened up. I will say that when it hits, it hits like the proverbial ton of bricks. If you've never tried it I've had decent luck with Biofreeze for temporary relief.

    Definitely some cool stuff there! Not sure I'll risk an Italian moto though. Had a bad expereince many years ago with a brand new Cagiva Allazurra Super Sport that practically lived at the dealership. One of the nicest looking bikes I ever owned but a complete lemon.

    Weekend was great, rode both days did about 250 miles. Took the 701 out Saturday, met up with a new riding buddy that has a KTM 690 enduro on sumo wheels. We hit some cool back roads I hadn't been to. Rode the 1290 to NJ yesterday to visit my parents, I always seem to make the trip in record time on that bike lol

    Didn't take any pics...I'm dumb and used the same cheap phone mount and of course it vibrated my camera to death again. The front facing one still works at least

    I'm in the same boat at the moment. Ibuprofen is my friend. Sitting or laying down I'm OK, standing or walking is not good. I did get the lawn .owed and trimmed Saturday but then I was done, paid the price for that. Been a week so far, getting a little better. Don't think I'm ready to try riding yet.
