    Post up the photos of your small cc bikes! I have become very interested in small cc bikes. Since you can only go the speedlmit...its more fun to it on a small lightweight bike.

    I've been having a lot of fun riding an SR400 as a second street bike the past few months. It's got just enough retro vibe and easily cruises with traffic at 70mph when I hit the interstate to run errands in town.

    Not all that great two-up but we've made it work as a "get around" scoot while on vacation too.

    It's been fun to use as a backroad scoot for local tag games too. I may scramblerize it to bomb down service roads in the forest and hang onto it for awhile.

    I'd love to see a 400 twin, or a 390 Duke with room for my 33 inch inseam

    My brother and I both have rc390's. Although I'm a 30" inseam I'm guessing my brother is at least a 33-34. He doesn't seem to mind & just turned 50.

    I can ride the RC390, but the tank on the Duke crowds my knees, and the left one is full of titanium and screws

    I've also got an old SL100 I restored and use to run around the neighborhood and even some light dual sport use. Little bikes are a blast!

    When I added up all the bikes I've owned displacement and divided by the number of bikes I came out to 320cc.

    I guess the Yamaha R3 is the perfect bike then.

    I've thought about that bike as a future contender.

    Yeah, don't like the racer plastics either. I didn't know there was a naked/standard version. I'll have to search for that. Then silently curse. If my lifetime average cc count is 320 cc the old CB350 at 325 would be pretty close. The R3 would be such an advance over that.

    Another version of scenario is to count all of your cylinders you currently own.
