Mike.. the Partaymon.. from Terre Haute, IN, here. Been lurking for a while, thought I'd just say, "howdy." Current ride is Suzuki SV650--- previous sleds oved the last 13 years were-most recent back to first- Suzuki SV650, Kawasaki ZX6E, Honda VFR750, BMW K1, Yamaha Seca Turbo, Yamaha FZ600, Suzuki GS500. If ya'all read that list bas-ackwards you can see the I went up in (perceived) ball size, and the DOWN in ability, sense, brain, twisty fun quotient, etc. size. That is to say, I quit hanging out with the squids--who always said I needed something bigger'n'badder--and found the bike I REALLY liked, and was comfortable riding toward (not on) the edge!
