It seems like forever ago when I went out during a heat wave. I think it was in the low 20's in the PIC below. That was nice!

When all else fails get a TW200, the bike for the apocalypse. Or a long winter.

There is a nice Tiger here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=950997

Hmmmm, he wants a TW200 for trade. I wonder if my wife will notice that the TW I got for her is gone and there is a strange new bike.

Yup, she would know instantly, and all my bikes would 'catch fire'.

Aint buying anything if the guy doesn't return my Craigs Emails? Either the Honda or DR would have to go to make room for a new bike. Tough decision.

That Helix is sweet! It would make a good stable mate to my PC.

That's gotta be a scam. There's no way anyone would sell one that cheap.

Its worth checking out atleast. My guess is the guy bought the bike and scared the crap out of himself. Searching Yakaz always turns up some stupid cheap deals though.

As far as the ZX-14 and the Hayabusa.... Both are amazingly smooth touring machines. Too bad the high insurance premiums come with them both.

When I had my Hayabusa....it was as smooth as silk on the highway and I could ride that thing for hours. It was the bad image of the bike that I couldn't deal with.

The busa is a great bike. It sealed the deal for me when I got the chance to ride one. Absolutely mind numbing acceleration. It had good ergos and good fuel mileage. The only thing to hit it on would be the weight and brakes. Super Comfy bike thats for sure. My dad absolutely loved his.

Yeah.....I put in a 1" Genmar riser plate on mine and it was super comfy. Kinda cool that the 'clip-ons' are attached to a plate that can be raised or lowered. It was super easy to change the ergo's on that bike.

I'm running APEX adjustable handlebars on my GSXR750. It's amazing what an extra inch can do to the comfort level on a bike.

For me.....the ergo's on my Vstrom are spot on. Hands down the most comfortable bike Ive owned. Guess that's why you should try out many bikes before a purchase. Everyone is different.

Not me. I have owned a Honda before and it was a Super Hawk. Really fun bike but the fuel range sucked. Had to really be careful on trips with that tank.

Haven't heard of the risers you mentioned, my dad would be interested in a set. Only one we know of is the Heli bars.
The Vstrom is a nice bike. Pretty bulletproof and can handle everything well. Never ridden one though.
