It's not "they", it's he, Ian Drysdale! And you forgot the 2x2x2, 2WD, 2 wheel steer!

I want a dual sport, that can be two up with bags thats light weight - Yeah I know I want it all - Now go get it
if you find it, please holler.

I'm guessing xr600 is as close as we'll get.


that's what I want today, with sticky, perfectly balanced, 21/18" street tires.

oh, can I have a red one, too, please ?

Never seen that particular SR500. I'm thinking the US version was strictly black/black. Was there a red one? If I was going thumper, it'd either be the SRX or the Yamaha 660-based MuZ.

Talking

Either the nc700x or the nt700v... Both fit in what I'm looking for, for my next bike...

But I get what you mean!

Did ride a Duke 690 couple of times, I'd never have to leave the city
again for fun riding.

I think I know where a nice 2008 is...



I've developed an unhealthy interest in a Yamaha FJR1300.
