I traded my Futura for a Griso, which kills my shoulder. If I were to get another ST, it would be a Futura again. I would then put an 1102 big-bore kit in it (Micah at AF1 did my Tuono and it rocks),...

There is a guy in Australia (?) that posted an offroaded V7. I can't find the website but it was pretty cool. Sort of a V7 Stelvio thing.

Yeah, the XR1200 was a thundering success. Harley is basically a two-bike line because that is simply what people that buy them want. I will be surprised if the Baby Twins sell at all.

I traded my Capo for a Griso. The Griso is sexy. The Capo is a better motorcycle in many ways. If you are interested I ran across a fine Capo on Houston craigslist. It looks way clean.
