    It's not "they", it's he, Ian Drysdale! And you forgot the 2x2x2, 2WD, 2 wheel steer!

    if you find it, please holler.

    I'm guessing xr600 is as close as we'll get.


    that's what I want today, with sticky, perfectly balanced, 21/18" street tires.

    oh, can I have a red one, too, please ?

    Never seen that particular SR500. I'm thinking the US version was strictly black/black. Was there a red one? If I was going thumper, it'd either be the SRX or the Yamaha 660-based MuZ.

    I had a 1979 in black,this one looks way better.I think people are somewhat overly fond of these bikes.They were kinda boring to ride.They look cool but,they weren't that great.I abandoned mine in Montgomery,Al. when I moved to Michigan and never once missed it.

    I meant for practicality.

    But I get what you mean!

    Did ride a Duke 690 couple of times, I'd never have to leave the city
    again for fun riding. :lol3

    Maybe some day...

    I think I know where a nice 2008 is...

    :lol3

    I've developed an unhealthy interest in a Yamaha FJR1300.

    Those dukes look sweet, I can't wait to get a chance to ride one and my girlfriend loves that bike. When we went to the motorcycle show she was comparing every bike against that one, said it fit her perfectly. She'll probably own one as soon as they start popping up on the used market. Sadly I feel cramped on it. Oh well, the super duke is pretty awesome too...and I wouldn't turn it down :evil

    What he said...:deal

    Leaning towards the KTM. It would be fun to make it kick the multi stradas ass HP wise.
