So, again, unless my Powerball comes up tonight, this is a pretty speculative discussion and I won't be actually buying - or even test-riding - any time soon. But it's nice to dream, and it's nice to talk bikes with people who love bikes. Mentally I'd pretty much decided that the next bike after my current Bandit (in a few years when the kids finish uni and start supporting themselves) would be a B-King. I love the manbikeness of the Bandit, so I'm not looking to do something completely different - but the B-King has twice the power, and is just cool. Other options I'd considered included a newer Bandit and a Superduke (which, I know, is quite a different beast as a twin but still a sporty naked). Recent discussions here had me taking another look at the Speed Triple, and in the process of that I found this comparo with the new Z1000. http://www.motorcycle.com/shoot-out...saki-z1000-vs-triumph-speed-triple-89250.html The old Z never turned me on that much, but this new one has me rethinking that a bit. So have at 'er! Other alternatives? Pros and cons of bikes in that list? Let's just take it for granted that anything way smaller is out (though a Street Triple is a possibility) and a motard is out and so is an adventure bike. And we shall not even think of cr... cr... We're talking sporty nakeds or near-nakeds.
