My second bike is the 06 Sport 1000 with the prices dropping
on them now is the time to buy. Its small enough that she
should have no problem with riding it and its power delivery
is nothing like the hyper. These two are the Dr Jekyll and
Mr Hyde of the Dual Spark Bikes.
Iím on a Multistrada but yes I am craving a second bike and my choices are all over the map. Monster R, XDiavel, BMW K1600B, 114ci Fat Bob or maybe a Triumph Bobber or Speed Master. Time is on my side though, CFO is halting anything new before 2019
Well... my situation is different than yours. My wife doesn't ride and I had two bikes for a while but didn't relish the extra time and cost of maintaining two bikes. So if I were looking for another bike, it would be an ST replacement. My short list is the '17 SuperSport, BMW F800GS, or the one I lust after the most, the MV Agusta Toursimo Veloce.
Regardless, it's always fun to look and drool. The KTM 690 or even a 390 both look like a hoot, too.
Well, I should get the GS running first, but second to my ST-2 would be something lighter and more pleasant to city-ride. My secret lust is a Zero SR which excels at most things the Duc is bad at. Plus, it also has no valve springs!
We?re kinda in the same boat wineguy. My wife is a newbie so I bought her a harley street 500, great starter bike. Now I?m looking for something practical to ride with her and save the ST4 for our two up adventures. I?m looking at the new Harley street rod 750, cafe style and 30 inch seat height.
Hi fellow ST folks, just curious what you are lusting after these days for a second ride. I've been looking for another bike for the wife. Her first and only bike was a Buell Blast, which I must admit was the best $1,200 i've spent. It was absurdly fun to take out and thrash (flat tracking around the property, jumping it and flogging every once of power from it to get it to wheelie). Anyway, in looking for a new entry level bike for her I also know that I'll probably spend more time on it than she will. So, I'm hunting for a bike for her that will be fun for me as well. Cafe racers are my weakness currently so looking at old Honda CB's, Ducati Monster, Royal Enfield, etc. Also I miss the zippy little sport bike for the twisties, so the Honda CBR300, KTM390, Yamaha R3 might be a good idea too. If you can only have 2 bikes in the garage, what are they?
Wrong question. Need to figure out how big to make the garage addition!
