I've never been to Philly, but I'm guessing there isn't much in the way of doubles and table tops on his commute.

Is that photo the 690? If so that's a beefy rear tire.

Ahh, but the new SMC looks (and apparantly runs like) the dogs-bollocks.

Spend half of your 10K for a hotrodded '05-06 SMC - beat up on everyone and still have a decent maintenance routine. Spend the rest on tires.

If you really want to spend 10K, but don't know what and want a reliable bike? Buy a KTM LC4-based model and spend whats left on tires.

The LC4 is the Austrian equivilant to the Japanese XR/L 650 motor. Things a tank, stone reliable and makes fbombs of torque.

Braaaap!

PS: Be prepared to buy lots of tires.
