That would be my choice, or if I really wanted to go broke, a new K1200 GT,



I'll probably cheap out and buy a used Bandit and stick my tank bag on it..

Have to agree with a prior poster, nice to have such a difficult decision. I have a '01 VFR and would highly recommend one. The V-four sound, improved comfort and outstanding build and reliability make it a real keeper. Having rode a ST3 on demo, my impressions where that the Duke had slightly better torque, but still didn't like pulling below 3k, just like the VFR. The ST3 is more nimble and sporty, and also has the hard luggage and sounds that only an Italian sportbike can make. (Church music with the right pipes. ) However the VFR is more refined and comfortable. It also sounds incredible with a nice slip-on to hear the V-4 cadence, like a muscle car. The only problem is that the new model has the VTec system which has had mixed reviews. Many owners love the new model though. Had to write in to support the Viffer, but if I had the choice, I would keep the ST3 and spend the dollars on some nice accessories, ie: pipes, comfort seat, etc, etc, etc. Best to you with your decision. Cheers.

Yep OK just because you are single...doesn't mean you have to rub in the fact that you get to spend money on things like a new bike.. I want a bike to commute on and bike to race on or twisty blast. I have to convince the wife that we can get by on 3 cars and 2 bikes instead of 4 cars and bike. Save my Ninja for track stuff i.e. add frame sliders etc. and cruise on the freeway to work on a beautiful Concours in the HOV lane.. If I could I buy a GSXR-750 or wait for the new Honda CBR800 V-4..
