Best bike ever is my wife's 2002 Bonnie with the Bubs, drag bars and chopped fenders. Sweet bike and wife. She let me ride it today. Man I love her.

When I ride her she is. Not sure what the little woman says about that.

Hey now...leave my little Red Rocket out of this.

On the S3, I still like the old style better but I'll never own one. Hard enough keeping a clean record on the Tiger.

I was speaking purely factually HAP, I am not really trying to stir you up. I am not so secretly hoping you have a look at the DukeR which is rumoured to be coming to the states before you commit to another 675R. There were two 675R mounted riders in the "fast/medium" group (next level up is race licensed riders only). We were sparring most sessions. We had a couple of chats between sessions. One of the 675R lads thought his bike was naff at commuting, so after I cleaned him up at one of Australia's only 2 GP worthy tracks, he vowed that a Kato dealership was on his list of places to visit this week.

Boldor...Great video,to bad you can't say wheelie in oz, and I thought us Canucks were living with a suppressive government! I think anybody that owns a Triumph would argue with you that theres is the best bike ever made. For me it's my D12, and I know alot of people would jump all over that, but for me, it's the ticket. For my wife it's her Str3. After riding it I understand why she loves it. Now if I was going to buy new, I'd have to side with Hap, and buy a D675r, love the look's and if it performed better than the Str3 it would be wicked. If you were on your game, and knew the track, I can't see how you could be dominated by a similar powered bike of another breed.

Can't wait till next summer.
Chris
