    as much as id like to say the 550....i'd lean towards the big single there. if youve never ridden or owned one of those big honda single dual purpose bikes, they are absolutley fun. and put it this way, you'll always be able to sell a nice xlr for a 550! i know it sounds weird.....im just a fan of those bikes.

    yeah, if you look at what the xl's go for, especially the big ones, say 500 and up, you can buy 2 550s for that. or at least a really nice one. i got my license on an xl500r. you should have seen the looks the cop gave me when i rolled in on that!
