Glanced at salt bike thread and then foolishly went to craigslist, now I want something like this:

Funny, that CB700S is in the "Bikes you're sorry you bought" thread. One man's ceiling...

i don't think Hunter would approve, but there is something about the looks of the bike. really the now discontinued xr1200 would be a better choice but i sat on one of those and really did not like the seat,or the seat height.
i'm sure it would run rings around the 883r.
not to bash but i think the way the harley looks to you is more important than performance.
something about the 883r talks to me.....

On a slow day, the XR12 would find its way onto my list. But having owned a Buell, it's be down on the list.

Stop posting the '14 red pix. If I'd seen one of those before I found my '07 this spring, there might have been payments...

What's not to love about the styling, stance and just damn good looks. The longitudal V just shows bravado and class.

A Yamaha Royal Star pulled up next to me at the gas station yesterday afternoon. I'd never really considered one before, but all the other ones I'd seen were dressers. The naked standard version really piqued my interest. For the first time, I thought, "I could do one of those."
