Thanks for the warm welcome!!
As far as "the kind of riding" I do... hmmm... how would I explain that? Well, I ride with my room-mate, and a few friends who ride a GSX-R 750, '06 ZX636R, and an Aprillia RSV 1000. We usually get together on weekends and nights to just go bomb some nice country roads or cruise the town. So, "recreational" I guess? None of us like to go balls to the wall for extended periods of riding since we are all pretty level headed riders who understand the reality of piloting these monsters on public Florida roads dominated by senior citizen's and teenagers.
And plus, one of us has already met the pavement at 60mph.
I went today to a few shops but none had a 650R yet. They said expect them to be in around April!
So, I ended up applying for a Triumph Speed Four. This bike seems to excel in power and quality in it's class and I got a great deal on it (with LOTS of Carbon Fiber accessories too!). I'll see Monday if the application goes through!
