If you're built like a brick sh!t house an "adventure" bike is the ideal mount.
It is big and tall enough so that you don't look out of place on it. It is a do everything bike. It will (used to) go miles on one tank of fuel, will lug loads of luggage, a pillion, and a tent all day and still handle ok. It has soft suspension, great riding position. It can get to places a "normal" bike would struggle with.... the list is endless !!
It's just a pity that the emphasis is no longer on "adventure". Triumph are too busy pandering to the needs of "ordinary" bikers rather than true "adventurers".
