    I would go for the Street Triple or the Speed Triple if I was going to get another bike, or maybe the new Ducati Streetfigher (the one based on the 1098) Not really a cruiser or a chopper but thats about as far as I would go..... for now :)

    If I was looking for a chopper I would go down the route of the Honda Fury, more or less guaranteed to be a good bike. :p

    a chap i go for a blast with now & again has amounst others a vincent black shaddow , the thing i find fasinating is he bought it new in 1959 & has owed it ever since, although now into his 70s he still ride out, ok not that fast , and to be honest the rides are for his benifit not ours , the last time we went out he was talking about finding a new owner for his bikes in the next few years as he is getting too old now. sadly with the black shadow alone worth well over 50 k it wont be me having them

    I have a Vespa which is by no means fast. It will just about do 70mph on 10 inch wheels with drum brakes. I don't ride it much for fun to be honest but it is fun in a different way :D It's a bit of a work horse as it can actually carry things on it unlike a sports bike. I've had a 6' artificial Christmas tree on the back of the scooter. I can't see that happening on the 675. :)

    To be honest with you all my first choice before I got the D675 that is was a gixer 600
    But if I were to splash out I would love a Gixer 750, I know its another sports bike but
    I just love the look of them, anyway unless the magic six numbers come up it ain't
    going to happen, dream away :roll:

    I saw it on Top Gear a while back. Even Clarkson was raving about it.
