Nobody seems to mind but I have a BIG problem with the Big Ruckus: It doesn't have a decent sized lockable storage.

A scooter without that is practically worthless to me.

I'm lucky enough to have at least one dealership for every manufacturer within an hours drive so I'm spoiled for choice. Each manufacturer has at least one bike I'd like, in this case the 919, but with the 599 going away and more cruisers than ever it seems like Honda isn't interested in selling to riders that just want a bike to ride.

Suzuki did the same thing with the SV1000, racer ergos on what's supposed to be a performance standard, at least they had the good sense to keep the Bandit in the line-up. What they need to do now is bring on the GSX1400,. Till then I'll stick to the European manufacturers, they seem to be much more in line with what I'm after.

No kidding, it's one of the biggest sellers in England and Europe so what do they do but stick us with more cruisers. Oh Boy....

Well I am 6' 300lbs and you won't catch me on one either, or any "cruiser" for that matter. I'll save my money for bikes that have a modi***** of performance instead of some '50's burger joint fantasy

"pistons as big as a P-51", Well they quit making those in about 1947 there Tadeo.

I'm sure Cycle Barf would be happy to trade your LOW milage Ninja for a left over 599. Then you'd have a bike you can do it all on.

Not bad, I put about 21k on my Triumph last year, but I didn't have the whole prophet thing taking up my time..........

Better bring a towel with you when you go to trade up, you're going to need it for the bath you'll take over 21k on a Japanese sport bike. I hope you kept it stock.
