i was this > < close to buying a ZRX before i bought my SV. but they wanted too much for it and i was worried about it being way too much bike for me.
i am still very happy with my "little" 650 though. as much as i like the sound of a I4 screaming at 14K i gotta love the grunt of my v-twin. i can rail the twistys in 3 gear at 6-9K rpm have plenty of engine braking when i need it and plenty of torque for the exits. and at about 360lbs dry its just flickable.
the only beef i have with it is the front forks could be stiffer but better springs and heavy oil could help that.
i want another bike. not a replacement...another. i want either a big sport tourer like a ST1300 or a Concours. but i am also really jonesing for a dual sport or motard......ghaaa. i need to hit the powerball and get a bigger garage
if i had the time and money i would have at LEAST 6 bikes
id keep the SV. great for commuting and all around bike.
Honda ST1300 for touring. i want to be able to ride long rides with some of my buddies with goldwings.
some kind of dualsport or motard like a drz400
a old rat/bobber/chopper of some kind, maybe a old triumph. just to barhop on. pull up to the local bar on Saturday night, park right in the middle of all the chrome catalog HD's and have people go WTF is THAT?
something like a gsxr750 for trackdays and maybe learn a bit of stunting on.
and a Ural patrol. sorry i just like them
that and i have a big black lab that i would love to teach how to ride around in the sidecar
