You might find that an FZ1, ZX12 or Bandit 1200 is just what you are looking for, not to mention Suzuki's new SV 1000 or the Z1000 from Kawasaki. After all, you have one cruiser in the garage, why not add a more sporting ride to your stable and enjoy more than one type of riding.

I will predict, however, that once you sample what the above bikes can provide in terms of riding fun and increased performance, you won't be asking to borrow your old bike too often.

I have limited riding experience (20k miles in 3 years) but I must say I am very pleased with my harley softail. I use my bike a lot like you describe, commuting and the occasional short trip, and have been very happy with it. It is comfortable and looks fine with large saddlebags. I haven't had any problems with it, and maintenance is easy.

I had a sportster before, and that was a good commuter bike. Not so great for two up riding, though. Overall I am a very happy harley owner. Whether you are looking for a bike like that, I don't know.

Of course, the second bike I would like to pick up is a sportbike, but I don't know if that would fit what you are looking for. No matter where you look, it's hard to find a poorly built bike these days.
