    No idea why it's not displaying, when you copy the img url to another window
    it will open.

    It's this:

    I think I'd like that even better than the CB500F I just bought. Still, the "F" is a nice bike.

    I like you fell in love with the new Stelvio. So much so I bought a 2012 NTX, this is one of the best bikes I have ever owned. Great for two up riding, extremely comfortable for long rides and tons of power. You can't beat these bikes for value for dollars spent!

    At the moment I'n trying to decide what I want next. Fortunately (?) I'm still paying for the house I sold with a loss, so I can't make eny decisions right now. But in about one year I want to buy something else and i simply don't know what. The XJ900F that replaced the K75S is a bit boring. Thought about a TDM but I like the newer ones but can't afford it. Same for the DL650. Maybe an older F650GS (the single) but i think they're a bit small. A used 1100GS is an option but after the 1150GS I'm a bit disapointed with the BMW quality.

    A Guzzi California 3 passed me today and that looks nice also. An old airhead like the monolever R80 is attractive but so is a VF750F. Or an early VFR750 or CBX750. Aircooled Suzuki 4's are nice, at least the 16v 550 and 750 engines, but I like twins (or a V4).. Still, the Bandit 600 air/oil cooled bikes look allright also.

    Or a mid 80's Kawasaki Z750.

    Maybe a 600 or 660 Ténéré? Restoring a CX500 seems fun also.

    There's a big chance I ll be riding the XJ for years until I can make up my mind. Maybe I should just buy a KLR, but they're not sold here for over a decade (and even then there weren't sold very much of them).

    Or a TransAlp.

    Maybe I should just go for a ride.

    Sweet bike. The red, white, and blue looks great.

    It's the US patriot edition.

    Local dealer went the Austria a few weeks ago and took pictures.

    I've already got a grey one, so I"m halfway there. ;) I won't be painting my frame, though.

    I like MGs. Just wish there was a better dealer network in the U.S.

    Fortunately they don't need much dealer attention for normal stuff.

    Hey, Kendall Anderson just completed the 2013 Iron Butt Rally on his 2007 Norge (in the fast red color). That would make 100% of all Guzzis entered finished.

    :hide

    OK, so there was only one entered, but still...

    Almost as ugly as some of the abortions that BMW puts out.

    KTM 690 Duke. "R" version if possible. Saw one at a dealer yesterday and it just looks like stupid fun :evil. Sadly, funds are running low...

    Nice NT650 a few posts back. The painted frame is the least of the mods on that baby.

    Yep, I mention it as the only one I wouldn't emulate on mine. I'm tidying up my NT650 this year, and hoping to buying an early CBR600RR to cannibilze for upgrades next riding season.
