wow that was a nice start to the day, thanks Yossef. Yes, XT660X is what I need for my 2.5-mile commute... or maybe new R1, tough call... Is there any reason why yamaha couldn't build and sell that XT for like $3500? Correct me if that's not basically the same engine that's in my `86 SRX and mah old `86 XT600.

If the price is right for the 1100 Breva, I am signing up for one. It's a great looking, functional and hopefully fun piece of kit.

Yo! What's up man?

Yep, bottom end is indeed the one from the good old singles, capacity is the same as the 660XTZ water cooled, euro-only, five valver but top end is new as its a water cooled four valver.

2.5 mile commute? I shall think about you on my hour long daily train ride. Did Hoyer passed you my best regards?

Default 2.5 miles at most!

JB, I've seen your commute. All you need is a comfortable pair of shoes, one of those Starbucks sippy cups, a pack of VS Ultra Lights and a book of matches.



But it's good to see you getting the itch again. I won't reveal my prediction for the date of your un-retirement in the MO office pool, but it's coming up soon.





P.S.- Well done Yossef. You're worth every penny we pay you. Both of them!

He's probably bent over like that to hide his stiffy. What an impressive set of legs. Trouble is, the bike is grossly overshadowed by the real eye candy.

The Kawasaki ZZR-X sure looks like a certain Yamaha of 10 or so years back.

The Hellcat and the Grisso, while completely different designs, share a similar muscular stance. The rear of the Grisso more closely resembles the Confederate America GT. The black forks and silver ceramic coated exhaust pipes are also styling cues found on early Confederates. However, compared to my '99 Hellcat, the Grisso looks bulky with its plastic and stamped metal pieces. It is cool though. I share your passion for the Agusta, I have an F4 which is primarily used for display. It always puts a smile on my face.
