ALMOST!

All the incidentals are worked out and I will receive the Purchase Agreement by Fed Ex on Monday.             Banana        Bigok           Between this new bike and my trusty(if I don't sell it) FJR1300 I am taken care of for many more years. On Monday when I send the paperwork back I will tell you all which bike I got!!

Any guesses?  You all know I like big torque and HP. Has to get 200 miles out of the tank without a problem.  

Well???

Very good guesses! The Tracer and blue color were on my radar screen so either or both may be true!! More guesses?

No offense intended at all.

Good guess again!! I took the Ninja 1000 off my radar screen quite a while back. Not blue! and I am not a fan of any of their other colors.

Now as for Slack's guess, I was looking at the H2 six, eight months ago as they were giving them away for UNDER $15,000!  But me and the insurance man would have had a conversation about my larger payments that I don't think I would have liked. Big, fat and heavy you say!!??    EEK!     You are close to being removed from my Christmas card list.

There are a few new Hayabusas around for cheap. Can't get handlebars on the thing! Then what about side bags/etc for overnight trips? I tried to figure out how to make it work.   Shrug   I've ridden them before and the motor is smooth and gets good mileage.

Close but no cigar!!!


As a reminder- I had a new ZX14 that I put handlebars on with lower footpegs and side case brackets. That actually was a great bike.

I'm getting excited!!!!!  Not sure when the Fed Ex guy gets here but when he does I'll check the paperwork and go to the bank. Then it will be official that I have a brand new Sport Tourer!!  When I get back from Fed Exing the papers I'll tell what I got.

I need more guesses. My ST bike has to have some "guts", get good mpg, adjustable hand or electric windshield, handle well, have bags and go 200 miles without a problem.

Now that is an excellent guess.   Bigsmile     And one bike that I had on my radar screen. The 4.5 gallon gas tank and hard edged focus steered me away though.

The Triumph Sprint GT -- would be my choice in Caspian Blue --- but I bet it's too "refined" for your tastes....   not enough "grunt"  compared to a FJR1300...  

so I'll go with the FJ09 which is also smaller but hasn't had all the "bad boy" spanked out of it the way the Sprint has...  

And I'm pretty sure you're not going for the Africa Twin --- you're too short!!!   Lol
