    Motorcycle

    I'm looking into buying a used bike. I'm interested in the sport touring style of bikes. I like the BMW's. Anyone here have one of them? I want it to take to work on nice days this summer. My commute is 40 miles each way so I think a crotch rocket would get uncomfortable.

    I was looking for a Honda VF1000R
    But they only made them for 3 years so they are too rare

    I looked at a theft recovered 98'VFR800FI, but it
    was a basket case... I may offer the guy $700

    Have Problems?... Chances are its due to overpopulation

    A sport touring bike at the age of 25? A 40 minute drive on a crotch rocket isnt too bad, plus you can 'shorten' it.

    I went for a ride yesterday that was about that long. Stopped at a "tiki bar" to get a chicken sandwich. Very relaxing easter actually.

    There's nothing wrong w/ being 25 and having a sport touring bike.. They make some pretty sporty looking ones too. Personally I would still go with a crotch rocket, though. I take my Yamaha R1 to work fairly often and I work about 40 miles away, too. Whatever you go with I'm sure you'll be happy.

    Whats wrong with that, I mean if a 55 yo executive can strip off his suit on the weekends and put on a leather jacket and play out his Easy Rider fantasies on a Harley Fatboy with his buddies. Then a 25 yo can cruise in luxury to work on a touring bike while listening to talk radio and relaxing on extra padded seats...

    I think either a Harley or a tour bike is practical for daily use on long rides, the crotch rockets force the rider to lean onto the handle bars and that wears out your arms on a long haul home...which for a bodybuilder would suck if either he had just worked out before going home or will be working out when he gets home. I know that you can get some serious forearm pump on long rides....

    If I ever live out in the country I will own a harley. City traffic is too crazy for motorcyclists.

    We dont have a BMW
    We have a newer Harley though *drools*
    New handlebars, new exhaust, paint, (looks black, but is dark purple with transparent flames)

    personally, i think Honda, Kawasaki, BMW etc are gay for "touring" bikes...just because they are not the classics...like Indan *drools again*

    It's pretty much a Viper engine with four wheels (sandwiched two at each end) and a seat.

    It's a concept bike.
