    I've never ridden a buell but if I can read a spec sheet well, I can feel

    No pics but I did spot a 98 Ducati ST2 with 26,000 on the clock and an asking price of $3500... What say you the collective?

    They managed to make that thing so proportional, that until I saw a pic of someone sitting on one, I thought it was a full-size bike. What does a fully grown person do with one of these....other than attracting strange looks?

    I did a demo on an 8V last summer, and it was just enough more engaging than an R12RT to be fun. I thought it was geared too tall, but all the big tourers are.

    When the weather turns to shit I start looking for big comfy warm bikes. Freezing rain yesterday, so here we are. :vardy
