This is the scenario: You have to commute 140 km daily. You chose to do it on an XLV (say from 92-93) or an XTZ 750 (same age).
Which do you chose and why? Note that on the home journey you may be find time to take the longer, dirt road route, home!

There were a couple of XTZ1200 on this forum if I'm not wrong.
So my question is are you happy with them?
(Yes I know there are Super 10 forums all over the web, but I would like to hear it from the Guys on this forum).

I am going to take a look at a 1994 Yamaha XTZ 660 Tenere tonight. It has 54000km on it and judging by the pictures it seems to have been taken well care of.
