Ideally I'd like a bike built within the last 10 years and slightly newer, because I've always wondered what it's like to own something that I don't have to fiddle with myself. (After all, I've already got a bike for that.)
Any other sport touring bikes I should take a look at, ideally for under $5k? Mind you, this would probably replace my need for a car, and I want to be able to drop everything and go on a cross-country trip at a moment's notice.
So much for the whole "newer, under $5k" and something you "don't have to fiddle with", eh? :lol:
Quoted since we are on a new page.Blind, the article you posted on the VFR is making me consider getting one myself...what's the difference between these two? There's a lot of examples of the bottom one on eBay, but none of the other ones.
(I just wanted an excuse to post some pictures of VFRs.)
Is it cheap? What does it need? Apart from the obvious, new tank, mirrors, and a side cover.Yup. Remembering how you got where you are now, without making 'heritage' the only thing you sell FTW.
In other news, I am looking at buying this:
Oh, it has the high-mount exhaust too! That sure shows off the swingarm better than stock but it makes fitting bags impossible.Spectre, I forgot how common those Hornets/CB919s are in Europe...maybe I'll bring you back one. They're practically cockroaches here.
Here's a good 5th-gen for sale an hour from my house...hopefully it'll still be there when I'm back in March. What's with me and inexplicably owning red motorcycles?

Is it supposed to replace one of your bikes, or is it supposed to be an addition?
Oh yea, and I have that same balaclava.
Truer words have never been spoken.Actually those are flies, but your friends will tell you how "bad to the bone" you look and make you feel special spouting words like "screming eagle" and "stage one kit" and that alone is priceless in a world where you can get a personality from a dealership.
That seems like a sound choice.
If that wasn't eight hours away from me I'd fight you for it. No joke, see, this is my serious face:
