    Here is my new bike I got last week. Love it- Tried many bikes and the Giant Escape line fits the best for me, stretched out more than the others and gave me more leverage to pedal the hills. I have a Cannondale Hooligan on order, its suppose to be here in March. Its goofy looking and that's fine by me.
    Nice Giant. Adding a rack? The Hooligan is indeed a goofy looking bike. Thought it was a folder at first. What will you use it for over the Giant?

    I should sell my Road Star. Only put maybe 200 miles on last season. And I could use more room in the garage. But it's paid for so...

    Love the Hooligan -- cbr9926, you getting the basic derailleur version or the sick 3sp?

    The MZ did not get much use this year seeing as how I got a great deal on it heading into Winter. Can't wait for warm temps in the Spring to really get some riding in.

    200 miles? Is that your only motorcycle? I sold mine when my mileage dropped to 3,000 for the year. I felt like I wasn't riding enough to keep my edge and didn't want to find out I wasn't.

    I got the only Hooligan version for 2014. http://www.cannondale.com/catalog/pr.../category/935/ the 3 sp.
    Winter is repulsive! My Hooligan is showing up in March just in time.

    I don't like how racks look at all. So will just use a backpack. The Hooligan is just for kicks and laughs for around town. I understand about not selling a paid off bike cause it was HARD work to pay it off.

    Good point. I'd like something smaller (less storage space), more nimble, yet with enough snot for the highway if I so choose.

    Versys is on my very short list of current model lust-worthy bikes.

    Ten years hence, there will be all kinds of used, reasonably priced motorcycles out there...

    New (used) moto for me!

    Sold the MZ to a friend, had considered trading for this. Time passed and I had no motorcycle. Same friend who bought the MZ was looking for a mtn bike. I work in a bike shop. A trade was made. He got a slick new Trek X-Caliber 9, I got this. Street-fightered 98 Honda VTR1000F SuperHawk (which is USAian for FireStorm). Omigodz, the power and torque of a liter twin... Yes the tank is big -- VFR tank for near double the range of the stock unit.

    Is that the radiator, there at the right front frame underneath the tank? That will make a nasty crunching sound at a right-side tip over.

    I ride my bicycle so much that I've become accustomed to that hunched over seating position ... my bike is a 750 Aprilia Shiver which is a naked standard bike. I now think the upright seating position feels awkward and wish I bought a track bike instead.
    Your bike reflects your attitude and your personality.

    Typical Honda-twin (or V4). Radiators on the sides, under the fairings. RC51, Superchicken, and I think the Viffer have their rads there.

    It does look awfully exposed without the plastics over it.

    Yep, radiator, there's another one in the same position on the other side, too. That stubby black peg just aft of the rear corner of the radiator is a frame-saver and will keep the rad off the deck in case of a tip over.

    This. There's an under-seat radiator mod that some do to these bikes, but I'm just not looking to put that much effort into this bike. Destined to remain a rat-bike rather than some sweet, dialed custom job.

    I've been riding since 1975. Been a MSF Instructor and ridden cross country several times. Not much for sport tourers though. I've been riding Ducatis since 1998. Two older Supersports, two 998s (one a Troy Bayliss WSB replica) and my current SS1000DS. Have ridden my current Duc on a couple 1,000 mi. days. This year I find myself cycling much more than motorcycling.
