  1. Is what all my ex's call me, but im after a bike that fits this profile too.

    Its just for around city/urban riding. I was considering getting a new street triple because it would be perfect... but I think I might get a cheap second-handy of any other bike I can afford.

    Anyone got any good recommendations? I like the look of naked bikes... and have even considered a hyosung gt650... but I would prefer reliablity too...

    What would be a good model to look out for? and by cheap i mean CHEAP as in under $7000, as new as I can get.

  3. Sorry mate, I see how the post was misleading. I just meant get any second hand bike thats cheap enough and isnt as useless as tits on a bull.

    I edited the first post.

  6. Honda Hornet 600 perhaps.
    Or maybe consider a DRZ400SM or XT660 motard.

  7. City and urban commuting? Motard or big trailie without any question.

    I'm old and fat so I bought a DR650. Being smaller and younger, look at the DRZ as jd suggested. You should get one no more than a year or so old within your budget.

  8. SV650/DR650/Motard Anything.

    Don't buy any inline four. They are for homos.

    Pat, chuck up a review of the DR650 sometime.
