Hmmm..today I want an FZ-07 for hooning around on, A Versys for the longer rides, and an SR400 for relaxing on.

:puke1

Matte colors look unfinished to me, at best.

That particular matte looks like somebody sprayed the bike with primer and gave up on it.

You obviously missed the "sporty" part.

VFRs are a bit cramped for pillions, but might be your best choice. Maybe an ST1100 for some more comfort/room at the expense of some sportiness?

It'd still be $5K or more.

Yamaha has the balls to charge $6k for the SR400, which is literally (except for the fuel injection) the same motorcycle they sold in 1978.

That's fine, but not everyone wants their SPORT touring machine to weigh 550+ pounds.
