Lets start this thread off with... I f'king hate riding my 929 on the street..
It's like slapping the racing gods in the face idling along in traffic and doing 50kph...
So, I want a bike I'm actually going to ride on the street. It shuld be good in the tight tight stuff, and not get me impounded. For long rides I can take the 929, so I'm not really concerned about how good it does long trips. So the following list has about the same horsepower as 1 horse. I want to spend about 2500 bucks at most :P.
Honda CBR 125R
Any other supermoto basically..( I'd be willing to spend more on one)
KLR or comparable low displacement dual sport.
But I can't really come up with any more to add to the list. Anyone have some suggestiosn of some really comfortable, fun, upright alround bikes that won't break the bank? Cruisers will also be considered provided they aren't full bagger tanks.
