(stock photo - no windscreen on mine, and I put an extender on the left mirror because I didn't find the view of my shoulder particularly helpful)
I'm hoping to pick up something older and with a bit of character that I can tinker with (some of those cbr photos upthread are nice, and I've seen some cool moto guzzis around) but for my first bike I wanted something easy and reliable to practice on. I'm happy with the choice - it's lots of fun to ride.
I'm sort of interested in the Zero electrics, but they're a bit spendy for a second bike (especially if you opt for the bigger or second battery packs) for someone who still drives a car 90% of the time. Will have to get around to taking a test drive, though, for curiosity's sake.
I'm sure I could find this in the thread somewhere, but what's your poison?
That's the bike with the hidden storage space for the helmet. Interesting first choice but nice.
Currently I'm riding my imagination. This was my last bike. Very few mods other than a full Akropovic exhaust, power commander and integrated tail signals. And yes I know it looks like it has a fanny pack. That was (is) my do-it all bag. Great for up to 2 day road trips, commuting (shoes, folded shirt, laptop) or just running out to grab a 12 pack. It converts to a backpack when off bike. This was taken somewhere in the sticks of Pennsylvania headed to my son's soccer game
I want a big naked twin like this next (1098cc that they stopped making in 2012). It will happen one of these days...
