I still haven't decided what to get so for the time being I am plodding around on the ol' 748. Current bikes on the lust list are Moto Guzzi V 11 Nero Corsa, Aprilia Tuono R, and the Multistrada.
After evaluating my needs those three bikes seem to fit the bill. I did originally want something that was able to go offroad, but that fell through when I didn't get the job in Grand Junction, CO that I was after. 100% of my riding here in Ohio is on pavement, so I kinda scrapped the offroad thing.
I am kinda putting the process on hold until I get back from vacation next week. Hooray for me! I can't wait to get out of Ohio for a while.
