    What kind of riding are you looking to do? That's a rather big part of what model suggestions you may get.

    I just want a recreational ski that me and my girlfriend can go out and ride. I had a 93 sl 650 but it's done. I live in conway, ar. I probably won't buy it until winter anyways but I just want to start looking

    On the recommendation of a few members here we bought a 2000 Virage this spring.

    It's turned out to be an awesome machine - its by no means a super-sport machine, but it's stable, easy going, can get up and go pretty good, is simple, and aside from one silly thing (which was my fault and an easy fix) it's been super reliable.

    3-up rideable, great with 2 adults, tows nice, and sips fuel.

    I rode it for about 3 hours today (felt like a tour instead of the go-like-crazy ride on my GP) and had a great time.

    If you're just looking for a comfy 2-up machine that will get you around, is capable of a little fun, yet won't drive you broke with gas bills, I'd consider one.

    I'm sure others will have other recommendations, that's just mine.

    That'd be the price range I'd consider selling my 2001 slx1200

    Not great for tandem riding though

    Depends on how I like the hurricane - if I like it, I'll sell the slx and go for the cane + a three seater (msx probably)
