Bike(s):
2001 SV 650 (my track ), 2005 SV 650s









figured out my next bike ...

one of the lab engineers out here in San Jose rides a Monster 695 and let me ride it a bit around the base. That was a blast! I think I found my next bike. It wasn't too tall, can't flat foot both feet at the same time, but not up on my tip toes. Very comfortable ... so now I just have to convince the wife to let me get a new (to me) bike ... I think a 620 or a 695 will do just fine.

It's perfect riding weather up here.... high 70s and dry ... sucks being without a bike.

i'm 5'6". one of the reasons i started on the monster 750 is because the seat height is pretty low.

is te 750 the same physical dimensions as the 620 and 695? Though I think the 620 is tame enough for me.
