Hey guys, I moved to Chicago earlier this year and it pained me to go through the warm riding season without a bike (I sold my Ninja before I left). I was told by a few friends of mine that now is a great time to start looking for good deals on bikes now that riding season is close to over here. So my search for a new bike has now begun, and I would love to pique your guys' brains for suggestions. I'm a taller rider, about 6'3" 220 lbs but with a short 32" inseam. I will be riding 2 up about 20-30% of the time with my lady who is 5'10"/140 lbs. I'm looking for bike suggestions that will be tolerable for 2-300 mile trips with the rare 500 miler thrown in for size. I'm pretty open to different brands/styles My criteria are: - Less than $10k - Decent room for pillion (footpeg extensions/new seat are not out of the question) - Powerful enough for safe highway 2 up for our combined ~400lbs with gear - Primarily a bike to be ridden around town; not necessarily a dedicated tourer/ADVbike, so I'd like it to be "fun" Some of the various bikes I have been looking at are the Triumph Street Triple, a used Tiger, SV650, WeeStrom, or maybe a used Ducati Hypermotard 796. I fit very well on the Street Triple, but I'm not sure even with a 2 inch lowering of the pegs that my girlfriend will ever comfortably fit on there. It's fun as hell to ride, so I'm kind of leaning towards it anyway and just dealing with it/stopping often on trips. I just wanted to see if you guys have any other suggestions so that she doesn't kill me when I suggest a trip. Thanks!
