The V Strom - upright riding position but still capable of carving up back roads.  Good for road trips.  They run about $9k brand new.  That's about the upper limit of what I can spend before the wife starts threatening to take other stuff away.

I like that.   There's something about the upright seating as well.   I sat on a Ducati at the bike show in January and it felt unnatural to me.   Awkward  ...  I seriously felt that when I came to a stop I would be unable to get my feet off the brake/shift quick enough to remain upright.   That's pitiful.
