What kind of riding do you actually end up doing?
I used to do twisties. Now I scoot over to the gym and back and run errands occasionally.

You live in NYC right?
Used to, now in Oakland (Piedmont actually). But with kids... you always have an errand or two while you are out and dragging 4 gallons of milk back on a motorcycle is a pain.

I actually have never cared about engine noise. I like the open-air motoring. To be honest, I sometimes prefer road cycling because you can hear nature. So if I could get a silent motorcycle, it wouldn't be a bad thing.
