Just got my 790 Duke the other day and looking forward to a good summer and a few holidays on it. Won't be racking up high mileages, as apart from the trips, I have a few other bikes to use locally

Previously toured on an old FJ1100, but feel I am chancing my arm with old electrics, so decided to go modern

Light weight and small size was a big seller for me, as I get older and as I only do trips one up

welcome to the forum and 790 ownership
the old fj1100 brings back memories but the handling at high speeds never felt stable
even minor road imperfections used to create scary wobbles and weaves for me

Congrats on the 790 John and welcome to the forum. A vastly different bike than your Yamaha but I'm sure you'll become accustom to the new ergo's quick enough.
