+1 on the 900.

Or just wait till spring and get a used S2R 800 for about that price when the market becomes flooded with them with the release of the S2R 1000 (and no, mine won't be one of the ones for sale).

Now on that personal attack, can you California guys stop filming those bogus earthquakes and mudslides in Hollywood and show the rest of us the secret handshake so we can afford to buy a house out there and live where the riding and weather are perfect? Thanks!

Re: Looking for a recommendation

Looks like the older 900 is winning hands down. I called about 2 of them yesterday--one here in SD, and one in Kansas, unfortunately both were already sold. I'll keep looking.

Thanks for the info, guys. That is exactly the kind of answer I was looking for.

If anyone learns that handshake, pass it on to me, too. The weather is awesome for riding practically year-round, but I still don't own a house here yet...

+1 on the older carbed M900. The perfect bike.

Hell, I'm a CA native, and there is no handshake. In fact, I'm bailing out of this state next year, in part because of the ridiculous housing costs.
