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.
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 !

Nice pair!

Recently, I've been thinking about getting a touring bike. The 2013 Triumph Trophy is looking better every day!

Ever posted a review/comparo between the two somewhere?

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.

Yeah, I keep finding myself cruising Craigslist and looking at these. Haven't bought one yet, but I probably will at some point.
Weird - the older I get, the more I gravitate towards "fun" instead of "performance." bought a KLX 110L a couple of years ago to ride with my wife and I can't tell who's having more fun.

I went from a 72hp bike to a 29hp scooter, and keep messing around with
it's transmission (CVT) to get the most out of it.. and today.. a CBF250
(with 21-22hp) passes by.. and.. well, you know the drill, I wanted one.

Every rider should own a TW200 at some point. My '91 is just fun. Not fast. Not furious.

Just fun.

Forza!

I just found out (and am ashamed to say that it took so long) that the
Forza 250 has this gimmicky transmission which I think every scooter
should have (in one form or another, I don't care), so naturally, even
if my current scooter is probably superior in most ways, I want one.
