Also, BrowningBAR, do I get a prize for recognizing the David Lowery quote in your sig?
That's right, 'cause what the world needs now is a new Frank Sinatra.

Frank Sinatra's alright, my dad listened to him all the time along with a buch of different jazz bands. Not my style really but the guy could carry a tune.

I don’t know what the world mayneed,
But I’m sure as hell that is starts with me.
And that’s a wisdom,
I’ve laughed at.

I don’t know what the world may want,
But a good stiff drink it surely don’t.
So I think I’ll go and fix myself a tall one.

Cause, what the world needs now
Is a new kind of tension.
Cause the old one just bores me to death.
Cause, what the world needs now
Is another folk singer
Like I need a hole in my head.

I don’t know what the world may need,
But a v8 engine is a good start for me.
Think I’ll drive to find a place,
To be surly.
I don’t know what the world may want,
But some words of wisdom could comfort us.
Think I’ll leave that up to someone wiser.

Cause, what the world needs now
Are some true words of wisdom
Like la la la la la
Cause, what the world needs now
Is another folk singer
Like I need a hole in my head.

I don’t know what the world may need,
And I never grasped your complexities.
I’d be happy just to get your attention.
And, I don’t know what the world may want,
But your long, sweet body lying next
To mine could certainly raise my spirits.

Cause what the world needs now
Is a new frank sinatra
So I can get you in bed.
Cause what the world needs now
Is another folk singer
Like I need a hole in my head.

Default You Folks Delayed my Decision Making

Oh my, this forces decisions. In the past, I owned a V-4 Honda, but it was never quite what I wanted. I now ride a R1100GS, though it is a bit too tall and heavy, and a Ducati which is great fun for the first 300 miles. I was about ready to swap the BMW for a V-Strom, but your review makes me think the "middleweight" BMW might be the right choice. Still not a VFR though; at least you didn't make me rethink my position on that one.
