    I am probably the furthest thing from a "bike person" but about 3 months ago while walking in the Meatpacking District around 2am I saw a guy pull out of his garage on a black Ducati Streetfighter. I thought that was the nicest looking/sounding bike I had ever encountered. I've thought about that bike many times since then and decided that if I were to ever become a "bike person" I would strive to get my hands on one; of course, after cutting my teeth on a less intimidating bike.

    Good choice, although I cut my teeth on a Suzuki GS500F and never felt the desire to upgrade.

    Yet! my next bike will definitely be naked, cuz everything is better naked.

    Any honda is going to be a solid bike. I'd swap out those amber reflectors though.

    Its a big engine for a starter bike...

    My first (and only so far...) bike: '74 Honda CL 360.

    Bought it a couple of years ago from an old farm in eastern Washington for $220 dollars. Spent a couple months fixing it up with my brother, and it's been a blast ever since.

    What I really want, however, is the BMW F800GS and about 6 months off work.

    I know next to nothing about bikes, but I like the look of a lot of the Exile ones. I assume they're so expensive because they're each made one by one by hand? is it just marketing? what's the deal? [​IMG] (minus the dumb handlebars) [​IMG]

    When I was 22, I promised myself I would buy a Ducati Monster for myself when I turned 30, if I wasn't married or in a serious relationship.

    I'm 31. No Ducati. But in a serious relationship.

    2010 Triumph Daytona 675 SE Multiple MCN ( "Sportsbike Of The Year" ) winner and one of the very few bikes I'd consider if I'm going to reanimate the biker in me someday. I'm retired since ~3 years by now... [​IMG] Exhaust choices: Arrow, Jardine, or Termignoni... The three-cylinder sound is simply orgasmic...
