Hello, I have been reading off and on for a while, but this is my first post. I have an '04 Thruxton, which I certainly like. I would like quicker handling. My interest isn't so much straight line, top end speed, it is in the curves. I also am wanting to do some two-up riding, but mostly solo. I am not particularly interested in long distance touring, but maybe some short distance, say no more than 500 miles. I have done some minor changes to the Thruxton, but nothing too high dollar. My question: do I continue to put money into the Thruxton, hoping to get more performance, or go to a new bike? With the above criteria in mind, I have looked at the Sprint, the Daytona 675, or maybe the newest Tiger. I can't see the 675 being too comfortable two-up, but like what I hear otherwise. How much sport and how much touring is the Sprint ? How would the newest Tiger be handling-wise? Sorry for the long winded post, just want opinions of people who know these bikes.
