Sold my bike...now I want another one. Badly.

Not sure what I want, though. Cruiser? Standard bike? Thinking about a Moto Guzzi Griso.

My griso has been good to me. The only problem is the neutral sensor never wants to work, a minor problem but annoying.

Trying for more of an "unconventional" choice?

If are thinking about the Griso, might wanna check out the Norge. Slightly different packaging of the same drivetrain. A bit more versatile and comes with ABS.

Not quite as exotic as the Guzzi, but still plenty of continental flavor is the Speed Triple.

Yeah, I don't usually go for the norm. Was thinking griso since it would be comfortable and classic but still quick.

^ this.


I just moved to the S3. More fun than the z1k or sv1000. More comfortable, more luxurious, and oh so sexy. Also not something you run into very often, even in Houston.

If you are interested in that, the new CB1100F would be a great alternative. Not the legendary CBX, but quite the bargain for what a cool retro.

Speed Triple 1050. Favorite engine of any bike I've owned. Easy to maintain and tune. Free TuneECU diagnostics and tuning software available on internet.

Chassis capable of everything from long trips to track days.

Or KTM superduke for same reasons as above if you can live with matte finish and angular looks.

Was jealous of track capabilities of superduke as a S3 owner...

I would've killed for a Duke, but found equivalent year/quality S3's for 1/2-2/3 the price. That and the maintenance/insurance difference pushed me to the S3.
