    The one with 10 options. Duh.

    Can they be a thumper??? Normally on these Beast things it ends up being
    a DR 650 or KLR. Can we just start there??? If they have 17" front wheels
    does it still count??? Spoked over cast wheels??? Inquiring minds need to know.

    It would be nice if you allowed multiple selections in you poll.

    I was remotely aware of that. It was a small rib poke that in many "What to buy" opinion
    threads in Beasts end up mentioning singles. In the future it is easier to just figure my
    sarcastic button is always on.:wink:

    2005 Vstrom 650. It's my daily driver so it's great for my commute and all the fire roads in the area.

    I may be wrong but I believe the most popular single bike - meaning not multiple bike's in one category (such as the DL650/DL100 combo or Triump...) - is the Super Tenere. It is a really nice ride IMHO

    Great all round bike as long you don't go in rocks, deep mud or deep sand.
    A must on little twisty roads.
