Look around for a 'used' bike that is in good condition--
---possibly not as much umph then your present iron. In that way you can sell it onto the wife that the less powerfull bike & being at such a good price, will be ideal for short runs.
It could be a 500 in a more upright form of riding & is ideal for such short runs & with marks on it of possibly the can, the fuel tank & such it is NOT as attractive to those that want to steal SO it becomes the more ideal bike to leave parked for a while. Sure you know the new goods you put into the bike, but not the twit wanting to steal a new or attractive iron.
You can even drop your cost of insurance, but simply having lability on it, or liability, fire & thieft & stay away from collision costs of insurance.
The 2nd bike is usually the less powerful. older & less attractive bike --- it is the one that can still get you around & stand the crap on the road, etc
My '97 YZF600r is a bit to good, but it does take the place of the 2nd bike to the Honda 929 & for a while it was my '87 TZR-250 that played 2nd fuddle to the 600.
