Funny discussion.  Believe or not my best friend actually Vintage raced an XS650 and wiped my butt once in awhile as I was riding a 76 Honda 750F, that was, a bit modified (CB1100F swingarm, GSRX1000 front end, etc.).  Nowadays I like my Vrod and the GPZ mostly but if I want something to really keep my attention the CBR600RR does that just fine!
