Both are inarguably rougher, more adventurous and lower maintenance than the alternatives, but both require at least a modicum of TLC to keep them happy, and a little more to keep them purring.
Thus, even though I should be writing here today, I'm instead going to borrow a friend's garage, toolkit and advice and do a lot of work on the trusty MZ that I really should have done before subjecting her to 10 hours of 80+mph yesterday and a vicious buffeting by Ohio winds on I-80W.
The two of us will then head out, with the wonderful friends who are hosting me in Detroit, to a biker bar in America's (former?) Motor Capital. She should, by then, be looking better than me but I can cope with the competition. She needs me to tell her stories for her.
