V7 stone or NC750X, I'm in a mood for some sensible touring this year, with low
fuel consumption.

Are you sure you don't want 1 more inch of anything else,
while you're at it?

I wish Honda would make a retro bike like the CB1100 except with the 500cc parallel twin for much cheaper. A real retro type CB500 would be grand because at the dealership today I found the CB500f, and X etc.. really don't look very nice in person.

I've always loved the Aprilia Falco. I feel that it is a great shame that they dropped the bike instead of updating it along with the 2nd generation Tuono. The Falco fairing and factory soft saddle bags with support frame made it a terrific sport-tourer. The next-gen instruments and FI would have made it that much better.

I regreted that post as soon as I posted it, since it could be turned around
in so many ways (that's what she said).

Oh well!
