The thread title is a joke btw. I'm looking at doing some longer tours this year and possibly going down to Mexico if I get enough time off and other plans don't get in the way. The one trip may be 2up - would the bike be bearable with another ~110lbs on the back? I'm really just looking for justification for this purchase . I was looking at a drz400sm or a sm610 but don't think those bikes would be that much fun pounding off ~1000kms a day. I commute regularly on my TL and even though it's a blast going home after work I hate seeing her covered in dirt and mud so I would probably switch to commuting on her as well.
Any input would be appreciated. Heck you can even reply with generic sarcastic remarks if you have nothing better to do. I love zukis and it would be nice to own another one.
