This was in '15 Been without a bike until this past February. Learned to shift for the first time too and got my Motorcycle license endorsement added to my CDL. Not bad during a covid time! The bike purchase went over easily with my wife since it was "for the bus"!
Congrats on getting the bike licence.
I got tired of Grom shopping then saw your post.
I hadn't considered the Duke until I saw your purchase in Feb and thought that would look great as a dual purpose.
If you plan on any backroad/dirt road riding I think you'll be happy with the dirt tires. I might go a little less aggressive on the next set. Other than the lumpy massage they provide on the highway I am very happy with the street performance, they are soft enough to provide good stick on the pavement and are wearing reasonably well. What's your plan for carrying the bike on the bus?
