What was wrong with the FZ1? Seems like that would have been a pretty good choice. Lots of power, handling that's more than equal to the demands of the local roads. Livable ergos. Why a full on race rep instead of that?

Maybe a Ducati Monster or Multi-Strada, though I'd take the Speedy Three myself

If you don't have twisty roads to ride on you should get an old Cadillac. You'll blend in well with other Florida residents and you can run into things without worry. The slow laid-back ride is perfect for making things such as a trip to the grocery store an all day affair. You can hold up traffic and leave your left-hand blinker on for miles. Yes sir, if you're looking for distinction and cool, look no further.

Heat is definitely a big thing. I have a ZX-7r in SoCal and that thing in stop-n-go around town will get real hot (fan will come on often). My friend with his Ducati Monster 800 seems to have no problem, though.

I have one word for you: Tuono. I'm biased of course, but I LOVE mine! All the performance of my old tricked out RC51, none of the discomfort. The upright seating position and mirrors that actually work makes lane changes, scanning for popo, etc. much easier, too.

that's right, it does not have a Harley logo on it, so it can't be any good.

Default Re: Get one of those new Buell Lightning CITYX bikes

Point taken. I feel the same way about American passenger cars.



Ya gotta admit though that most of the haters haven't ever sat on a Buell, much less ridden or owned one.

Default Addendum

I was looking at some stats and noticed that even my 13 year old boat anchor of a shaft drive air-oil cooled ancient obsolete Suzuki 1100G gets a 0-60 of 3.1 seconds. Quicker than the latest wunderbike. Sure, it'll go wailing by me by the time I hit 100MPH, but there's not much use for that performance curve on the street.



Nope. Race replicas are not suited to urban warfare. The gearing is all wrong, not to mention the heating problems and visibility and quickness of steering issues.



Go with the Speed Triple. Yes. Mmmmmmmm. Speed Triple.
