thanks for the heads up mrbreeze! i'm just not ready for a new bike either...

i'm going to keep my fingers crossed for a liquid-cooled, 130 hp, 95 ft/lbs, updated R12R in 2012 that doesn't sound like a muffled sewing machine.

doesn't hurt to dream...

As you can see from my sig line I am back to little bikes where I started 50+ years ago with a home made mini bike.
Most of my riding is now local in the mountains of WNC so that is all the bike I need.

For some reason 360lbs wet and 185+RWHP are calling my name. I just heard rumor (on a radio interview with Geoff May) that there maybe something in the works for a street version next year. (It has to be produced standard to qualify for racing, he was complaining b/c the 1125 is just lacking a little in horsepower)

And where'd you see one selling for $9k, or is that US pricing?

Heh the dang Lightning TT th'd has me thinking about Buell's again, start with an XB12STT, throw on a touring seat & topcase and have a Uly Lite.

I am sorry to say, the US doesn't get the CBF.

There is a Honda Canada promotion on now, in advance of the "new-and-improved" 2010 model. I bought a new, red '09 at $8,999, + ~$600 in free extras from the dealer. I take delivery in 2 weeks. Honda is offering huge discounts on left-over, new bikes, across the line.

The CBF is no lightweight for sure, but it has a low centre of gravity, feels 100 lbs light than it is, and seems way lighter than my current DL650. And it has shit-loads of torque at low RPM.

The CBF is an all-round, UJM motorcycle, in an era of, to my mind, too much specialization. I only wish it had a round headlight!

I will tell you what bike I would like to see. A bike with the seat-handlebar-footpeg relationship of a Goldwing without the Goldwing price .

Moto morini scrambler. V-twin, 1200cc, looks like a handful. My type of bike :)

A new day has dawned!

Today, I want an HP2 Megamoto. Tomorrow I'll want a Hypermotard.
