748, how sure are you about the redesign; did you read it somewhere? Don't you think that they'll wait untill 2004, so that they can get 2 years out of this new model? Was there ever a time when Honda redesigned a bike 2 years in a row? I'm not saying that you're wrong, but I want to know, because I really intend on shopping for one in the spring! Also, I don't plan on going any higher than 900-1000cc's, so I'd like my next ride to be a keeper, if you know what I mean.
