Parked next to my TW is my Beta 300. It has about 3x the power, and weighs close to 100lbs less. That's for blasting down trails and the tough stuff.
Parked next to that is an 800lb Honda Valkyrie that's old enough to buy a beer.
Each has it's purpose. I wouldn't want to ride 1500 miles to Vegas on the Beta any more than I'd like to take the Valkyrie on an enduro run.
