Sportbikes. Currently two in the stable, but more to come eventually (probably early next year).

Also might add sport tourers to the stable one day, for longer (and more comfortable) excursions.

No you won't... I'm well over 30, and I'm nowhere near ready for a cruiser!!

VFR is considered a sport tourer. You can even get hard luggage for it.

VFRs are sweet bikes, but why do they have to weigh so much. 500lbs is hardly sporty. I will probably end up owning one eventually though.

It was on Chris' wishlist till he rode one in Daytona. He liked it, but said they really, really need to offer a 1000cc or larger, cus the 800cc is underpowered for that big ol beastie. Still, he said it's comfy as all hell.

I perfer the '03's over the new ones myself... I'd take one of those in a heartbeat.

It's V4 though, lots of torque.

But if going from a pure sportbike, it's gonna feel like a DOG.
