And that is just sad, very few people need any

Oh well, For what it would cost me to tastefully
denude the new ninja 650 ABS I could probably end up with something european. The silly thing is I don't even want
the extra power that a street triple or monster 796 would get me, a naked SV or EX would suit me just fine (with ABS, dammit!), and I can add givi cases and a screen or not, as needed. I can't say I'm a fan of the short tail on the triple or the 796, though.
I suppose an f800r may be the easiest choice, or possibly an fz8? I can't be the only one that wants a bike like this in the states and would prefer to pay Japanese prices.
