I got a new position at my job and it doesnt go well for riding a motorcylce. I have to transport things that dont go on motorcycles so i have not been riding much. I also knocked up my wife...(1st kid horray!) My weekends are full of projects and getting ready for baby and my other spare time is scuba diving and golfing...which goes hand in hand with driving a cage because i can go before/after work. Therefore a bike for me is now a hobby and something i plan on doing seldom. Just to go on rides with friends or short rides... i currently own a 2002 VFR800 and its in great shape. I figure i can get 3700 for it then get a beater bike for 1000. then i can put 2700 into the bank to prep for baby. Thinking going back to an xr650 dual sport/super moto, although i hated that thing on the street for daily use. I am really open to a wide range of bikes for my next one, price, CC's and ergonomics are my limiting factors (i am 6'7'' and 300lbs) Thoughts oh great internet full of strangers who all think they are right? My best friend thinks i am an idiot...funny, i think he is an idiot too!!!
