I was being polite. He's posted three times about it and I can't tell if it is really subtle spam or he's actually interested in one.

No spam here. I love the bike but have three great ones already. It would be fun to ride but I have 6 months vacation starting Oct 4th and will use the time to travel on the Tiger. I believe this thread is for the bikes you would like to have but circumstances dictate otherwise.

I kind of thought this thread was a variation of my "In the land of the Infinite Garage" line of thinking, meaning what bike gives you a (very likely un-answered) stiffy today?

Saw this for sale recently. It's cheap enough I could probably afford my current bike (V-Star 650) and this new-ish Ninja 250r. Lately the banshee scream of a high revving motor and a bike that can take corners a bit faster has been appealing to me.

Is there something wrong with me finding a crashed (or at least missing side fairings) bike interesting? Is it wrong to like a "Beginner" bike?

The bike in question:

SWMBO has a Ninjette. Neat little motorcycle. Huge rev range. Not gutless, but there's no big power hit, even though it revs so high. Chassis is pretty amazing--no flex or wallow at all. You may find out differently if you're much on the high side of 160#...She's 108 and I'm 138.

I was not a big fan of the Griso when it first came out, but when this one was introduced I started drooling. Yeah, unlimited funds and a bigger garage, and one of these would be in the stable.
