Owch!

I finally get a dual sport again (put up in storage in Maine-who knew we'd have a 12 month season this year) and every one that I wanted to ride with is going out of the game!! Get well SOON!

Oh, in that case the Kawasaki is out. They make a 1000cc version though, and the ZX-12 is a wicked nice bike. Look at the SV-650, Yamaha FZ-6 and FZ-1 or the honda 599 or 919. There is a new Bandit...

Well, there are several that meet you general requierment but the Kawaski ZR-7 is a lot like it. Why do you ask? The Nighthawk 650 that you have is a beter bike (IMHO) than the 750 is.
