Motorcyclists tend to emphasize the journey over the destination, but we think the destination only adds to the amount of fun you can have on a bike. After all, a BMW R 1250 GS is much more fun in Moab, Utah, and you can fully enjoy the snappy handling of sportbike on the Tail of the Dragon.
During my road trips, I’ve often noted that I wouldn’t have traveled to this destination if it weren’t for my motorcycle. The fun one has on a motorcycle can extend beyond saddle time and that’s something that I try to factor into my assessment of a bike.
In the end, everyone is looking for a motorcycle that will suit their experience best. Regardless of top speed, IMUs, or aerodynamic winglets, there’s a bike that will match your brand of fun.
