Another vote for a Tiger 955i. I regularly ride with 2 guys, one owns a Vee and the other owns an '03 955i. I've ridden both and I love the the Tiger, it feels like my Wee but with better suspension and more power. If you need more performance and stay on the street, the 1050 Tiger is another step up. I personally like both better than the Vee.
