I regreted that post as soon as I posted it, since it could be turned around
in so many ways (that's what she said).

I went to the IMS last weekend so today the list is the FZ-09 from Yamaha, the 1199 Panigale in black and the carbon Diavel from Ducati, and from KTM the 1190R, 690 Enduro R, 690 Duke R, 500EXC, and a two stroke to be named later.
Other than that I'm good.

I don't know why I am harder on this than other adventure styled bikes. Great color combo though!

Because Ducati is Harley Davidson with more pasta, and you internally rebel against Harley Davidson?

What an awesome looking bike...It is drop dead gorgeous!

In actuality tho I think i would buy a big Suzuki GSX1250FA with luggage and then spend the other ten grand on the road. (and it wouldnt be spent on maintenance either)
