I've always liked the SF, but like many it's more bike than I'll ever need. The Monster is on my radar again as the non-swelling tank models are now pretty affordable; there's a 2013 696 near me for just $5200 asking. Tempting and sensible (as a Duc purchase can be, anyway) but I keep getting drawn towards a couple of S2Rs in the area for around the same money, but they're smack dab in the swelling tank years, though it doesn't seem to be as big a deal here in KY/OH area, where non-ethanol gas is readily available.
I was actually going to pull the trigger on something vintage: BMW R60/2 with an R75/5 engine in it. Seller let me drive 200 miles to pick it up and then flaked on me, deciding he wanted to keep it (yet it's still on Craigslist :shrug:). According to him, I was the first person to actually show up after contacting him, and I agreed to full asking price. Didn't seem like he really wanted to sell it.
