So, what would you like to see?

In the realm of two-wheelers I mean, you silly freaks.

While we patiently await the 09 models to arrive, what would make you consider trading up, or down, or sideways for that matter.........or just adding something new to the stable.

Personally, I have had a sweet spot for the Triumph Tiger 1050 for about a year now. I'd love to see what Kawy could do to stuff a 1 litre plant into the Versys.

2009 Honda Interceptor VFR1000GT

thanks for informing me that they are planning to release it Carlo. still waiting to hear the news from Kaw, but i have a sweet spot for the Honda. just want to see if the push button transmission is going to be an option or standard. that could be a deal breaker for me if there is no clutch.

I think a 1200cc bike along the lines of the VN900, with belt drive, would make me happy.

^^^ keep an eye on the Kawi site and/or Deron's posts. don't think you'll get that, but i think there's something in the works for the touring crowd.

I could easily see a pair of those parked in our garage. It's no secret Tracy has been pining over the BMW F800ST, and when I showed her a picture of that Viffer1000 with the hard bags.............well, she got quite excited.

so you show her that pic often, eh ?
i actually prefer the seat and tail section of the non-bagger, but obviously i would need the bagger. the electric windshield is a huge plus as well. just waiting to see the final specs before i sign the check, but there's a good chance i will have one next year. tell Tracy mine is for sale

The VFR800? Just becuase Tracy is a girl, doesn't mean she has to ride a girl's bike!
