    In 2 or 3 years the new honda nc700 and nc500 are going to fit the bill nice for a tall scooter like ride with a good price. By then they ll be 2 to 4 grand .

    I solved the V-Strom vs scooter issue. I kept my 02 Strom when I bought my Citycom. I actually find myself putting more miles on the scoot, it's all I need for most of my riding and it's much less fascinating to Officer Friendly.

    Still for loading up with camping gear and taking off for a week in the mountains, the big bike is the way to go.

    Depends on the owner, I prefer my 500ie to the GT. The GT is simply too massive and heavy for me but I've put 14,000 miles on the "lite" Scarabeo in trips of up to 3,700 miles.
