Good breakdown and it explains why full tour'ers, ST's, and standards all are enjoying big sales over the past few years. There are many ways to enjoy motorcycle riding involving unique and overlapping reasons. We are lucky there are a variety of bikes out there that cater to our collective whims. I love riding and I can understand, even if I don't participate in it, every kind of riding style.

Duc ST3 is on my wish list. I sat on an FJR at the International Motorcycle Show this weekend and it just felt to big for my style of riding. 200 to 400 miles a day for the touring side and quick jaunts around town. MO did a good review on ST's that summed up the practical use of a variety of makes. Luckily we have a choice of ST's out there to fit our style of riding (so long as you are willing to pay the price for them

Tell ya what. If you have some money you would like to lose, back up your bullshyt with some cash. Harley sold more motorcycles in 2003 AGAIN, along with having thier 18th consecutive record profit year, and I can prove it easily. Anyone could buy a Harley at list. I did 2 years ago, and I live in Chicago. So how about a little wager that Harley sold more bikes than last year?

What a bunch of horse****e just to buy a bike. Honda has been selling the ST in two iterations since 1990 in this country. Seems to have sold ok. Go to the dealer and get one if you want one. The Yammie sure is nice and I would consider selling my trusty ST1100 to get one. But no way am I going through that level of crap.

The only benefit you would get with the FJR would be a lot of weight and ABS (if you bought that version).



I put about 40 in-town miles on the FJR and when I went to swap back to my Sprint, I almost threw the thing over, it was so much... smaller, I guess. Significant difference in "presence".



Put the K&N filter and "off-road" pipe on the 955 and keep the Sprint! If you really think you need it, buy a taller windscreen.



BTW, I'm about to put a used set of GENMAR risers and a never assembled set of Silver bags with almost all mounting hardware (minus the reinforcement plates) up for sale. Also, a never-farted-on seat, a never used stock windscreen and grab handle. They are take-offs (except the risers) from my '03 bike. I used a lot of stuff, including my bags, from my dearly departed '00 Black bike. And I've decided I don't need the GENMARs.
