Can't say enough good things about the Street Triple R. It's even comfortable in the heat. Only caveat would be your height. 6'3" might be pushing it.

Maybe you ought to start a Killboy "so much win" thread? More appropriate to bitch about JVB's bitching there than on this fail thread.

Yamaha Seca II, early 90s, had a fuel pump issue that would cause the engine to die. Happened to me once starting to merge onto a freeway. Scary.

It would actually surprise me if it didn't become a "classic" at some point in time. Or at the least some kind of cult item, especially if it was kept mint.

Maybe a BMW G 650 GS, low suspension + low seat = 30.3 inch seat height? 439 lb wet weight. Haven't ridden one, but if it's anything like the F700 it would be a lot of fun, great cornering.
