Basically dead.

Been so long that I've been thinking about contacting toyotafj40s to see if I can track down who he sold my old Hawk to.

Man, I've been riding the shit out of my BMW since I got it back together. I'm sure I'll ride even more in a couple of months as it starts to cool off a little (FL heat on a air-cooled boxer with a full fairing can be kind of oppressive. Those air-cooled cylinders are right in front of your legs, and that fairing blocks a LOT of wind).

It's old, and no, it doesn't ride anything like that awesome Street Triple R did (although it's superb for a 36-year old touring bike with a design dating back to the 70s).

Having hard luggage helps--it allows me to use the bike as viable transportation when putting my tank bag on the Triumph wouldn't cut it. It's also more comfortable than the Triumph, obviously (although an STR isn't bad on ergonomics).

I still want another fast bike, though.

Still ride my VFR. Just fixed the brakes, enjoying having something with hard luggage to enjoy. Wouldn't mind a concours 14 or something in a couple years though.

Hopefully picking up a 2nd-gen SV650S this weekend, with GSX-R fork swap.

Not a beauty, but it doesn't need to be as a $1500 track toy.

yeah...that SV was considerably more of a beater than it appears in the pictures. Also, it was lowered. I don't have time right now to go through a whole slew of little annoying issues to get it ready to go.

On the bring side, he had essentially a full parts bike minus the engine...so if anyone is in the FL panhandle and wants about 1.75 SV650s, including a GSX-R fork-swapped one, for $1500, and you have time to address all the little bullshit stuff, I can point you in the right direction.
