    If I could find a clean 1976 Geneva Green RD400 that would be fun. That was my first new bike and I should not have sold it.

    Just saw a vision - my vtx set up a little more for touring - add a batwing or something
    A big thumper street dirt like my old xl500
    Add a fun little street bike like a harly xl1200r or a ujm in 700 or 750 cc ...

    I'm already smiling ....:rofl
    :D

    I still kinda have a road king itch... But the big vtx is scratching that pretty good...
    I think I would like to try a high speed tourer like a concours or st1300....:wink:
    Not that a vtx 1800 can't run pretty fast....
    I just think I,d like that other riding position too - like a bandit or st1300

    A 2012 ninja 650

    Hopefully I'll want one tomorrow too since I'll be buying one then.

    I know. I've seen your pics on some other forums were both on as well. I know you like it. What other bikes have you had?

    I had my heart set on a ninja 1000. But this 650 is more comfortable. And really the 1000 overkill for me. Even though I'm tempted by the power I think the 650 will actually be a better choice for me. I've had a CBR 600 and VFR800 so far. But both of those hurt my back. The 650 just seems to fit me so well.

    This is my first motorcycle, I had a few scooters in the past that I used to race around on before this. Those were fun too.

    My dream bike has always been a Speed Triple... but I knew that, for me, would be suicide for a first bike. So I've been working my way from 50cc to 1050cc, lol.

    Really torn between two REAT bikes:

    Kawasaki Versys 1000: can't beat the weight, the power or the smoothness of that 4-cyl engine

    [​IMG]

    Moto Guzzi Norge: Heavier, less horsepower, more truck like BUT, (and a big but), it's eye candy!!! and that engine!!!

    [​IMG]

    As I can't afford any of them, I'll stick with my trusted versys 650 (it's a versys, it has 2 cylinders, so, I guess I have both those bikes in one :rofl)

    Just went to the Triumph dealer today, looking for what will be my next bike. I have to say, I am impressed by both the Bonneville SE, and the Street Triple.
