Well, after my mishap (hornet up sleeve post) I flirted with many different bikes. I became seriously interested in the 1700lt and almost pulled the trigger on it. Almost. I only needed to sign the paper when all of a sudden I had an epiphany of sorts. I picked the 900 two short months ago for a reason. I liked it. Bearing that in mind I rode a brand new Pearl/titanium bike home yesterday. Oh, and there were posts asking everybody what they named their bike.....mine is now called, ahem, The HORNET.
