Start off, My first bike was a 2005 Yamaha R1, Loved it, rode about 100 to 250 a day if i had fuc-around time. It's been about 6 years since me and 'The Sexy' parted ways, and was looking at getting a new girl to spruce up. Cant decide between Italian or revert back to Japanese. I will again be using it to commute, and with all of the support and ease out here, I would like to get in on a couple track days. I could go 3 different ways with the Duc: Motard, Monster, or the now 1199 and the only way i would go with the Yami is the new R1 have had interest in Moto Guzzi, but know nothing about them other than they look bitch'n.
