Big fenders would be great for touring.

2012 Honda NC700

Yeah...I'm thinking it's this now, the Honda NC700.
Makes sense for me on many levels.....the two main ones being efficiency and suspension travel.
Sounds like the perfect commuter and I'm believing it. Umm also expect to see a redesign/ work around for the under-seat fuel fill (like bmw on side). That's prime milk crate mounting supplemental storage space right there!

After several thousand miles on my late model BMW, I just want something that sounds cool...maybe a Ducati or a VFR or even an inline 4 that screams when you rev it to redline.

I feel you. I like the new R bikes, but they sound worse the harder you rev them.
That's something I find viscerally offensive.

My favorite 70's bike. I saw two nice ones at the Vintage Jap meet I was at this weekend.

i'm getting sick of having to re-shim valves on an understressed engine. triumph, you piss me off. i want to be able to ride only worrying about having to get gas in the next 150 miles.
