My new (leftover 2009) Yamaha TMAX, the perfect commuter for Long Island (NY).

Traded in my liter sportbike for this when I realized the sport bike was a LOUSY day-to-day commuter. The only thing I give up is the straight line acceleration, the TMAX handles as well as any sportbike I've ever ridden, it out-accelerates 75% of the cars out there and returns close to 50mpg even when ridden at 70-75mph (which is what the traffic on the highway does despite the 55mph posted maximum speed limit). I LOVE THIS THING!
