I know where there is a really good deal on a new 2010 non-ABS ST1300. I'm toying with the idea of pulling the trigger on this. I had an ST before and really liked it. I just hate to spend the $$$ and I am not sure I want to give up my current ride (2008 Nomad).

This is a great thread! It's like a support group.
Hi I'm " " and I wish I had a " ."

Well, my Transalp was supposed to be my " no matter what " runner so I could still ride whilst rebuilding my CB500k, but it's not working out that way. Spring maintenance has revealed some trouble and so I again am wishing for a dead reliable, ride anywhere bike that doesn't overlap much in purpose with my other bikes (transalp and 500k).

This is really tempting:


I did some rough mathematics and figured that if I drive this 33% of the time, the money I save on gas over driving the cage will pay for the bike in 4 years. Not perfect math but hey it's called rationalization.
I have had a strange desire to own a fully fared sport bike for a while now, but one that I could use all the power. The more I look at and read about this bike, the more I want it.

I was staring at one last Thursday. Maybe it was my mood, or just the dealership I was in (dreadful), but it didn't press my buttons as much as i expected. However, I am still thinking about the cb1000r

I almost pulled the trigger on a Buell before they went under. They were great bikes.

Black n' Red was the way to go.
Not quite there on the Mt01, but agree on the Buells. Took a test ride on the bike pictured and a 1200 Lightening Long. Fantastic bikes.

Not that my opinion is worth a penny more than you offered for it, but I'd keep the Nomad. They're both heavy pigs. If I recall from some of your other posts, your wife loves the Nomad.

He really needs a bigger garage so he doesn't have to trade them off.

After a 400 mile trip on a naked 4cyl 600, now I understand why people
generally tour on liter+ 4cyl or twins, so:
