Too late! DN-01, yikes! Lessee. I could get an Aprilia 850 automatic for 10K or a Honda 680 automatic that look like a mini-Victory Vision for 15K. Let me think about this......

I sat on the DN at Miller, handlebars in the knees due to the forward controls. For a scootercycle its kinda cool, well if it were $7k not over twice that.

If I were a rich man...........

Another bike that I'd be interested in. I just love the practical nature of the Mana. I like bikes like the Tiger and Ullysses for their upright seating position, comfort, and supposed practicality. The Mana would be down on power and have zero off-road potential, but I think I could overlook that for the storage. I commute to work on bikes just about every day. To be able to put my lunch in the storage instead of a tank bag or back pack would be great. And then to be able to leave the helmet with the bike, locked up out of the weather. It just makes so much sense. I couldn't really care less about the lack of clutch, but then again, it would be nice in a traffic jam.

Maybe I should start playing the lottery so I can at least have some chance, albeit incredibly small, of buying all the bikes that catch my eye. That would be all of them.
