Don't know if I want that or just a full blown wing. Wouldn't really be riding with anyone so it probably doesn't make sense, but sometimes I think that if you are going to go for a wing you might as well go for the whole beast.

I like the FB6 because it's svelte.

There are a lot of ways that I would describe the F6B, Svelte wasn't one of them. Great bike though

I'm feeling the Valkyrie interstate today, it's more in line of my price range.

Nc700s

Too bad they don't sell that version here. We only get the NC700X with the BEAK. The NC700S is WAY better looking. I'm so over motorcycles with beaks.

The X is probably a better choice anyways..

More upright, wider bars = more leverager = easier to ride, and more
suspension travel = comfy ride.

I've never ridden the S, but have had a few rides on a cousins X, it's great,
but needs a few more HP.

Here's a few pics, click for a bigger IMG:

I love that bike!

I don't know. I think it's pretty svelte too. It's low and long, creating a clean look to it.
