A yamaha??
i know they're nice bikes, but i had a bad experience with one some 20 odd years ago, and wont look back.
if you intend on changing your own oil, check into it, i hear some of them require dropping one of the pipes. that would steer me away in a heartbeat.

4 gallon tank... you'll be looking for gas every 100 miles or so.

Yeah what he said!!...LOL But seriously the 5 gallon tank on the 900 is one of the best features in my opinion.

If you feel you really have to have it, then go for it. You only live once!

i say just get it, then we can all laugh at you! :lol:
i say if you are in the air, make a pro/con list. then laminate it, hang it in the garage and look at it everytime you think about getting rid of the 900.

They're kind of like a V rod...the only people that like them are the people that own them. :lol:

If you're really thinking about going in that deep, go for the Raider!

Thanks for all the replies...you guys are great! :D

Not sure yet.

Maybe a Moto Guzzi California.

I love my 900 but I insist on getting something that can go from 40-80MPH+ with absolutely no effort...and maybe occasionally from 70-90MPH as well...and I am not buying that the 900 is that bike. It's perfect for everything else...mind you.

Hmm, the optional exhaust is better. Still don't care for the look, but it's your opinion that counts. [shrugs] (I've owned Yamahas, got nothing against 'em). Okay, so how are the insurance rates on that bike? :tongue:
