Been lusting for a new trackbike here lately - Kind of thinking GSX-R 1000 but I lust for an Aprilia RSv-4. Those bikes with a good exhaust just makes me feel kind of funny

Seth Enslow's HD XR1200.

The stock XR1200 is the only Harley I would consider.

NC 700x withsome much needed trail mods of course. I like the milage, engine, and reviews on the ride characteristics. sounds like a winner for what I'm looking for in my distance travels. a KTM or CRF would be nice to have on the side for my near by trails.

Someone happened to show me one that was nicely done with a special extended aluminum tank on the back. Ya'll seen that or know where to find it?

Yup - be interesting to see what the production version ends up being. It will be a badass regardless.

The cross plane crank is awesome, but that is the new Triple that Yamaha is releasing.


Today, If my bike will ever sell, there is a red/black Honda PC800 at the local dealer on consignment. Gotta say, I really like 'em for the riding I do.
