Honda couldn't sell any NC700 in US. I hope its not automatic like last one was.

Since you have a similar riding background to me I can relate and would say 800cc-1000cc bike should be your new partner in crime. sv1000, fz1, fz8, z1000 or vfr800 any are great...get any one of those that you can find at a steal.

Those are the bikes I'm looking for. This is my list of bikes I'm thinking of

SV1000, FZ8, FZ1, Z1000, VFR800, CB919, Triumph Street Triple, Ducati Monster.

I'm on the fence about owning a bike thats not Japanese. Just not sure if its easy to get parts, cost of parts, insurance rates, reliability, and ect...

But if I went purely by looks I'd say the Triumph Speed/Street triple gives me a boner

I'm starting to think European is the new Japanese. In Eugene we have a Triumph dealer, Aprilla dealer, BMW/Ducati Dealer, KTM dealer, NO Kawasaki dealer and ONE dealer that carries Honda/Suzuki/Yamaha. At least HERE finding a friendly Euro dealer is not that hard.

Interesting comments on the Euro / Japanese bikes. My observations and impression is that it's easier to get parts for and maintain a Japanese bike than a Euro bike.

At least PDX there are several shops that carry the Kawasaki /Honda / Suzuki brand and only two, until a few weeks ago there was one, that carry Triumph.
