The Triumph 800 and 800XC own that range currently, and the 09 done right could really take that position from them.

If you haven't seen this, it is worth the time. These modded 800XC's are ridden WAY beyond their intended use. Wonder how many repairs were done throughout the making of this? Make sure you view in full screen mode...tp

Ya, seen that before. Ernie and Nick are incredibly skilled stunters. Ever see US "Top Gear" with Tanner Foust racing a 'vett against Ernie Vigil on Speed Trip through an industrial area, and over the S.F. bay bridge? Awesome.
