    I was super envious of your DRZ, but I think I made the right move with the SV. I do a 70 mile commute, doing at least 75mph a hour.

    I have thought about getting a Dual Sport for Dville, but I rather save my pennies for a Gixxer 750.

    I hate to say this, but I want a drunk bike. Any moto seems like a bad idea. A 50cc dh bike seems almost safe.

    Dude, I'm Asian!!!! Can't you tell by my username? My avatar?

    I'm going to ride a Gixxer, a R1, maybe a VFR. Because that what Asians ride! Not some piece-of-crap Austrian moto.

    Plus I like having a fairing.

    Must spread rep... :rofl:

    Anyone who can do 145 on a naked bike is either brave, or stupid. I got mine to 130 a few times and that was ridiculous.
