I would really like a new 990 Adventure but don't know if it would be much different from the XC. May trade in the Tiger for a Dakar Edition. From what I have read it is a bitch changing oil in the 990's.
Then what do I do with all the Triumph hats, t shirts etc???

Lately I have been craving a SV650, in the 2005 and up flavor. If I find a good deal on one, I might have to make my wife mad at me.

In a week or so I am picking up a mint 2008 CBR600RR from a friend that wants it gone, and I want to do my first track day on it. But I am thinking I shouldn't track a beautiful, like new CBR with only 1k miles on it. I should just sell it for a small profit and pick up a used SV, maybe one already sorted. IDK. I feel like I could learn the basics better on the track on a more mild SV that a surgical rocket like the CBR. IDK

I also love the sound of that twin motor.

Me too. I might move up but my retro Zuk TU250x is waay too much fun to spend double.

This is my third entry... as the topic says... TODAY...


TODAY I have woken up lusting this incredible motorcycle!!!

Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 8v


Yesterday I was trying to find reasons not to buy a Kawasaky Versys 1000



Ahhh, the life of the poor is so much more fun!!! Think about the endless possibilities I can dream of! One bike each day, am I not lucky?!

New clutch lever, a couple deep breaths, and we were on our way again.
Very nice bike !

Okay, couple days ago I said I was craving a SV650. Well I still do, but for some reason there is another bike calling to me.

Call me crazy.

But I want a Yamaha TW200

That blistering 16hp and fat tires should pair up nice with the big Ninja.

Something about them just looks really fun, and being that it looks like a big kids bike, maybe I can get my wife try it because she is intimidated by bikes in general.
