i love my hawk

short story:
the hawk is arguably the most underrated motorcycle out there.

long story:
i bought my hawk around 2009. it was at a used car dealer and the price was so good i could not leave the poor thing there. since i bought it i have also had a gix1k, rc51, 1098, aprilia rxv550 supermoto, aprilia mxv450, and a cbr125(lol). of all thise bikes, the hawk has been one of the best.
this past weekend i looked at and test rode a monster s4rs tri colore. i told the owner i would think about what the monster is worth to me. on the ride home(1.5 hours) i kept thinking how awesome the hawk feels. i like it as much, or more than my 1098, and prob the monster i tested.
to sell my hawk would be a great loss for a small financial gain. so i have begun looking into higher clip ons or bars for the hawk. hopefully that will improve my old body's comfort level.

carry on.

Quite the list of bikes there. I share your passion for the VTR, believe me. BUT, you need to go for a quality ride on an MTS1200. All the comfort and a bad *** Italian twin between the knees. This moto impresses me more with each ride. It really is that good.
