After selling my R6, and been road bikeless for almost a year. I have gotten the itch again. I want a easy to ride fun bike. Out of all the motorbikes I have had, my favorite was my motard (DRZ400SM). Hopefully this gives a indication of my riding style (squidish). I would get another motard, but on longer riders and speeds at 100km/h it was annoying on the DRZ. Not sure how other motards stack up though, as thats the only one I have ridden. It really needed a 6th gear. Are there any other bikes that are similar to a motard in terms of lightweight/flick ability but can cruise along easily as well? My primary interest is in dirt bikes, I don't think I see myself carving corners and getting huge lean on. I tried and I sucked at it. Hence why looking at light weight, fun to ride road moto's. Only thing that comes to mind is; Street Triple Husky Nuda Both these bikes look great, but are a bit over my budget and more of a "want" then a reality. My budget would be around 5k. Any other suggestions?
