I agree with Paxtonbrimstone, if it makes you happy it is a good thing. To be honest, the thing that sold me on an adventure bike was 5 days in West Virginia on a rented 1200GS. I absolutely loved the bike, but given that the nearest BMW dealers are an hour away, and given the cost, I opted for the ATAS for convenience, reliability, etc. Oh, yes, I can lean my AT over till the pegs scrape with out feeling out of control just like on the Beamer. And Pax, as a good friend of mine, a moto-journalist for Rider wrote just a few issues ago when asked how many bikes are enough, responded "just one more". It's all good.
