Does anyone have any experience on the 690 Duke or Duke R? I'm considering one for next year as an all-around commuter, back roads shredder and track day bike. There are a lot of great reviews out there but I'm looking for opinions from anyone who has either ridden one here in the lower mainland or can compare it the other road-legal SM bikes like the Huskies or DRZ400SM.

I know they cost more but am thinking the added comfort and utility might be worth it.
