@AJ - I do quite often run the same trails but my Range tends to be my ride Whistler Black/ Double Black with mates bike (which means for me that I am always trying to keep up on the descents) and my Sight is my guiding work bike so normally less hectic riding.  The Sight is also optimised for guiding in the Chilcotin where I don't need a 2.4" enduro tyre on wide rims and there are very few hard hits to one's wheels. Hence I might ride something like Howler or Microclimate on both bikes but I am more likely to be riding more slowly with guests when working so I can work with having less travel and lighter tyres than on the Range. Also most of my training miles are done solo on the Sight so having a slightly less 'capable' set up means I am less likely to spontaneously decide to ride a 'harder' trail than I had originally planned (I also don't take knee pads for the same reason sometimes).
