Sorry Kraven, not only are you absolutely wrong, but at $7000 you and Randy are also about $2000 over budget on a neat Sportster.

DR650 was my second bike.
Wished it would have been my first.

I might even own one again sometime in the future. It was a great bike.

In my opinion, a bike really should be a hardtail to rock a sissybar. Sissybars that don't attach at the rear axle bolts just don't look good. Again, that's just my opinion and don't let it sway you...

With getting a larger "maxi-scooter" the only thing you'll be missing is all the shifting. With smaller scooters, you'll be missing performance.
