In August I'll be ready for a new bike, planning to order it in 4-5 months if all goes well. I'd like to spend less than $20k+ORC but for something exceptional I'd be willing to spend some more and wait longer if itâ€™s a new release. I'm more of a sports bike kinda guy but I'm open to suggestions. I'll mostly be using it for short hops around the neighbourhood and day rides (royal, bells etc), I wonâ€™t be using it as an every day commuter. I'd expect to do 1 or 2 long weekends a year, Syd-Mel for example so it needs the ability to carry a bit of luggage but not as it's primary function. It'd help it comes in red too Most of all though, I don't really want something that I'll see every other day out on the road. I don't want to sound too wanky but it'd be nice if it could turn a head or two. For instance, in the past 12 months, I've only seen two Buells. So, this far, at the top of my list is either a Buell Firebolt XB12R or the new '08 1125R (although I'd have to see it in the flesh first, not sure about the front of it).
