    Default What would you get?

    I'm working on getting a street bike running right now (92 GS500E), but thinking I might end up selling it and getting something a little more modern.

    Give me some ideas for searching? Thought the Husky Vitpilen 701 was awesome until the price was released. Just can't justify it.

    Thinking I'm going to stay away from the touring segment as the BMW will fill that void after this winter.

    Don't need a big motor to have big smiles, so midsize as far as engine is concerned is what I am going after.

    what do you think of the Yamaha XSR900/700? I think they would look pretty good with a little modification if you're into the jap bikes.

    The new xsr900 is an awesome looking bike. Comfy ergos and useful power.

    You already know what bike I’d say and you probably would never get one, which is totally out of character for you since you seem to be smart with your money in other aspects

    (Freakin SV650, of course)
