I think you've already nailed the obvious comparison with the VFR... IMHO the heavier touring bikes like the Yamaha ST1300 or the big Kawi or BMW K-bike are in a different class & I think not so good for just zipping around



P.S. Do you still have your ST3? If so I think you'd be crazy to take the depreciation hit on a new one.

I'm with Fenton on this. Why you selling an '05 unless you have a pile of miles on it?



The VFR doesn't have the torque of the Duc. The Triumph would be tempting if you just want something different.

Don't you have a ST for sale? Have you seen the female version of the box video? Saw it on MSNBC this weekend...

The centerstand can be removed. My St4 doesn't have one and I have no idea where it is.



It saves you about 10 lbs too.

But...but... you ARE an idiot !



This'll be what, the 4th or 5th bike you've almost bought? First it was the Daytona, then the Buell, I;m pretty sure there was something else in there, now a 1400 Concours, or a VFR....



I've had what, 5 or 6 different bikes in that time frame....?

You live in San Francisco? You should get any late model Triumph bonneville, '67 through '70. The TR6 Tiger is good too. You could get a Sportster, but that's a girls bike.
