SV650 or Street Triple, depending on your budget. Both are fantastic and have that "all you have to do is think about turning and it turns" intuitiveness, though the seat on the SV pretty much sucks.

I'm moving to an apartment in a few weeks and there may not be anywhere to park the DRZ. It just might be going up for sale at that point.

Voltage

Does anyone know what the voltage should read on a running bike. I think I may have a charging system problem. Alternatively, is there any simple way to determine whether that's the case? Thanks!
