    Up high or down low? Not faster, cooler, better nor brand, cc's, or any of that. Which is more fun?

    Depends on what type of riding you prefer. Cruising , upright , hauling ass with better handling , forward lean. At speed the wind pushes on you , holding you up and taking weight off your arms. On a cruiser your a parachute in the wind.

    Having road raced a motard, and being a current owner of a fuglystrada, I'll pick: yes.

    Personally I don't like clipons. Not necessarily because they're uncomfortable, but because I can go just as fast without them, and I like the extra leverage, and being really able to sit upright during heavy breaking (with regular bars).
    But as great as the fugly is, I still don't think if pick it if given the choice of a "real" sport bike for track duty.

    Both are cornering on pavement, so they're tied for second to last. Just ahead of going straight on pavement.

    Oh what the hell ever!!! Are you implying riding a 500lb bahemoth on a dirt backroad is more fun that torqing your tires into a twisty smooth paved road?? I really hope you're not

    Definitely going with 2 doors. Not settled with just one lady. Riding style would depend on which gal's on my passenger seat.

    I like versatility, so I vote for the Multi.

    I am constrained by a small garage, so if I chose the sportbike, I would not be going off road ever, which would limit the fun for me. The right adventure bike (like that Multi or my Aprilia Dorsoduro) can be a lot of fun in the twisties as well.

    Either of those is like bringing a knife to a gunfight in either situation. Don't get me wrong , I like the Dorsoduro , but it's neither a motocrosser nor a roadracer.

    I guess what I meant to ask is, which gives a greater perception of lean? Being up high or closer to the ground?
