Curious - what prompted the change from that lovely Nighthawk to the big V-Strom? V-Stroms are good bikes to be sure, but I sure like the look of that red, air-cooled Honda 750!

I bought the V-Strom while I was still stationed out in Illinois. The Nighthawk was a fantastic bike (beautiful, classic lines). But when I had the opportunity to ride (and buy) an almost-new V-Strom 1000 for $5,700 (slow tip-over = scratched plastic), I was hooked. It had loooonnnng legs for those wide-open spaces in the midwest. I loved the Strom - very comfortable, lots of power, etc - but still drooled everytime I saw a Nighthawk 750.
