Hey Chisenhallw, I have a bit of a soft spot for the Drifter 800, too. After they were discontinued, Kawasaki slapped something like an $800 or $1000 rebate on them, so they were dirt cheap compared to other middleweight cruisers. None of the dealers in my area had one, so I ended up going with a Suzuki S50 instead. As it is now, I doubt I will ever buy another cruiser, but I would have liked to ride one at least once. I thought they were well done.

Although whoever put the Indian running light on that one should be ashamed of themselves.

As usual I want something that probably don't exist.
A battle scooter that's a total sleeper. Something that looks like a Chinese pos, but will do a buck comfortably, and corner like wethepeople.

I don't know if this will hit 100, but are supposed to handle really well.


Here is a stripped down one

I try to stay out of this thread to avoid this trap but for some reason today I got hung up going through page after page and many pages back stumbled across one of these. This bike is unlike anything I've ever had or been interested in but for some reason...it's just jumped up pretty high on my list. I found myself pricing them all day.

Contrary to any sense of reason or aesthetics, I find myself wanting a heavily overbored and farkled DR650 shod with 50/50 rubber and a full set of luggage racks and Wolfman or Nelson-Rigg dry bags. Oh, and a generous gift card from REI to go with it. As Nessmuk said, I don't want to rough it - I want to "smooth" it.

I'll believe that when I see one at a track day!

I saw a Victory Vision on the highway in Miami yesterday. Still think the Vision 8-ball is sweet.
