    :lol3:lol3 Thanks for a truly laugh out loud moment on the intertubes this AM. :rofl

    I keep going back and sitting on the one at the local dealer. The one that has a sign that reads "do not sit". :D

    They're cool bikes in the flesh. I can see how an HD guy would find one hard to resist.
    This could be the best model year Honda has had in a long long time.

    Because I am afflicted with "Hey-Look-At-That!" Syndrome, I find myself looking at a new Kawasaki Concours more and more... and more.

    Better looking in the flesh. Local dealer has 4 on the floor. I'm smitten even with it's drawbacks, no ABS or cruise.

    Hokay! On that candid admission, I can back you up on it...at least until/unless somebody does a good job of making fun of it. :evil

    Yeah, I suspect it'll leave a Harley well behind.

    What Goose is that? Breva 1000?

    What's the local Honda store these days? I bought a few bikes at Hawkeye Honda about 100 years ago.

    And enough with the cruise. :D Get the bike and a set of Throttlemeisters. Call it good. Geez. :rofl

    I do get the ABS bitch though. I'm still a little bent that I couldn't get it on my ZX-14R last year and it's available this year.

    Make mine the Yamaha Concept XTW-250. Build it, bring it here, and I will buy it (honest!).

    I'm very seriously considering one of these three bikes. Low price tag, more performance than what I've got, and pretty darn good fuel mileage :wink:

    I REALLY want a CB1100, but being pragmatic I will wait to see & check out the new trio of 500's due in a month or so....
    The 700's 6500 redline motor may well be practical & make Logical sense but I like a engine to rev & make horsepower even if it has a "powerband".
    Like my current V Strom 1k.... strong mid range & reasonable top end surge with the "box" & slip on's... it's pretty strong up to 8500+ now. It wasn't stock tho....:thumb

    I hear you there! I'm looking for enough power to get up long grades at 65+ MPH without locking the throttle wide open, good fuel economy, and affordable pricing.

    Best wishes to you with your next bike :D

    Tonight, it's this:

    Fat chance of ever finding one, except that it's a late one, with the unloved comstar wheels and 4 into 1 exhaust. Love the black paint and engine. I think this may be the only 750-4 I ever rode.
