Gecko have the 690E in. I sat on it, stood on the pegs, sat on it again walked around, sat on it again. What a wonderful piece of machinery, the quality is obvious, the ergonomics exactly right (for me). I know the sales monkey since my Ducati days and he is a pretty straight shooter. He has bought one and ordered the racks too although he couldn't give me a price on those. The only reason I didn't slap the deposit down then & there was the lack of long distance tank. It's an interesting exercise with the tank over the rear wheel but I'm sure Aqualine will work it out. I told wifey the price and that I was buying it, unless she bought it for me first (I have a big birthday in Feb 09). No firm undertaking from her yet but I have seen my next bike and I'm excited. I'm going orange. The only downside is the mirrors are a bit gay and an aftermarket muffler would be a must.
