Incurable, can't be helped!
I agree. There is no hope. Even though it isn't time to buy a new bike, I'm shopping. Every thing I find that interests me gets immediately compared to the Uly. My moto-brain says things like: It won't be as fun. That's not enough torque. You'll be bored. I bet it rides like a sewing machine. That bike has no soul. Etc etc etcIf EBR made a 800cc (+/-) v twin powered adventure bike (like the F800GS), I would be in heaven. My desire for something light weight is going to get overridden by the need to be able to haul 2 people plus gear. Now, I'm leaning towards the R1100GS (assuming I don't get lucky and find another Uly).
My buddy has his '98 Lightning on the block, check it: http://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/mcy/4074889442.html
Gymi, that Lightning is beautiful. I like the blue anodizing. I would just make a mess of it. I'm a rat bike kind of guy, my bikes don't get polished or washed unless it rains.Which works well for the dirt cheap M2 Cyclone I posted a picture of. The price is down to $1800. Still out of my current budget. I know the ideal situation is to have a torque filled Buell and a nice dual sport bike but that will have to wait for the future.
See the updated post for pics of my other current obsession.
I would jump on that XT.
Details sent Gymi.
