And here I was thinking the fairing and windshield on the red one would probably be nice Actually, I take the windshield off my V-Star quite often when it's not bug season. They all look good, but thanks for the report

I think Honda should just go ahead and rename that bike the FB6 since NO ONE gets it right. Not that it bugs me or anything...

I would go with the one that has the footpegs in the correct position (below seat). 70mpg would be great, but I think for less $ I would go with the 15 more HP, 2500 more rpm, and 1 more front disc that is offered on the Versys.

You picked the wrong one.



Someday soon, before I go all old-man-guzzi, I'm going to own one of Triumph's 675 triples.
