That looks like a great ride! Wish I could do it but I don't think I can swing it on short notice.

Heyduke posted this. A moped/dirtbike/mountain bike. My god does it look like a fun toy.

07 is an 865 carbureted bike. No idea what passenger comfort is like though - I'd be dubious about that aspect. Solid otherwise.

We sat on a newer one at moon, that pillion seat is wider than it looks.

It wouldn't be for long rides, just something lower, easier to manage, and with some torque for the two of us to run around on.

You should be good then. The bike is plenty solid, easily powerful enough for two up.

You have seen our current stable, yes?

Get that stupid rider backrest out of the way, I bet it would be fine for a little backroad wandering. She loathes riding on the FZ6.

Just get that HD thing you want and be done with it. You need to get that out of your system.

Those bars look as comfortable as the CX's. Much better passenger seat, I'll give you that.

I don't know what that is.

Just get a Bonneville, and put a King and Queen seat on it, then you'll have a proper bike, instead of a POS cruiser.

I hate cruisers.

Sorry, I just do.
