    You don't get a lot of bike for the asking price. The resale market is also pretty hit and miss from what I gather.

    Sam and I discussed the Hyper. I reeeeeally like the Hyper and the Monster. For hooning/two up dinner dates/weekend fun they both seem to really fit the bill.

    The new ones have a bigger tank and can easily average 40mpg. No more 97.5 mile bitch fests.

    Hahaha this is the best description I've read so far of the fz10. I still love it, but man it ain't purdy.

    Tuono means "Thunder" in Italian. Super Duke would be so much cooler if those Austrians would loose that orange paint.....
    I still get excited looking at the original V-Max....... and I like Ducati's Devil
    How many bikes are enough?
    Just one more.......
    I agree that the Diavel is purdy, but it would take getting used to as that gas tank is huge to reach over. I don't think they are too nimble in the twisties either.

    People always say to man up and grow some balls, balls are vulnerable.....man up and grow a vagina, those things can take a pounding!!

    I can certainly relate to wanting something more upright. I love attacking twisties on my ZX6R, but if I could keep only one of my bikes it would definitely be the Ninja 1000.

    What about a Ducati Multistrada, the KTM 1290 super adventure, or KTM 1290 super duke gt.

    I love my BMW R1200 GS. Hope to ride it to Alaska one of these days.
    I think I have a bit of a problem.....

    There used to be a guy on here that moved out to California that had a KTM SX 500 that he set up for the track.
    That would be crazy fun.
    I've got a KTM 200 & it's more violent than anything else I've ridden.
