    For those of you not fortunate enough to own more than your VFR, what bike would you like to see next to it in the garage?

    Tough for me to answer but choices would look something like this:
    - RC51
    - Duc 848
    - Duc Sport 1000 S
    - BMW R1200GS or the upcoming 800GS
    - Triumph Speed Triple
    - Kawi Drifter (great job of making a modern day Indian)
    - 08 Busa

    arghhhh... too many to choose from!!

    Realistically a runout Superblackbird or maybe the new CB1000R when it comes out, biggest regret of the mid '80's and one still lamented was not buying a mates bright Orange Laverda RGS1000 off him when he sold it. Unfortunately at the time I needed a bike to trust a city commute so stuck it with my then GPz550H2, did try commuting a few weeks on another mates borrowed grin making Ducati 900 Desmo Darmah with Conti's but its heavy clutch and clunky gearbox sucked in heavy traffic.

    Let's see, in addition to the 2000 VFR & 89 Hawk GT, I want:

    A Ducati, cause let's be honest here, if ANYTHING sounds better than a VFR with a good pipe on it, it's a Ducati with Termi's on it. I saw & sat on the 848's & 1098's 2 weeks ago & I am smitten by their good looks. They seem to be an ass roasting torture rack but damn do they look sexy. I hate white on a vehicle but the pearl white on the 848 look lustrous enough go swimming in.

    A 1969 Honda CB750K in Sunburst Orange or Sunrise Gold Metallic. These bikes will look good until the end of time. If one is to have a collection, how can it not contain the bike that changed the world?

    A 1979 Honda CBX. With 6 head pipes looking at you, they look simply awesome.

    A RVF400R. These things are supposed to be one of the best handling bikes ever made.

    1991 VFR, red with white wheels.

    A WWII Era Royal Enfield Bullet or Air Head BMW with a side-car painted in war livery with a machine gun mount on the side-car.

    Late 90's Moto Guzzi V11 Centaro Sport in green. For no other reason than I like the way they look.

    A Victory KingPin.

    A Kawasaki ZREX 1200

    A Triumph Speed Triple.

    A BMW R1200RT for long range trips.

    A RC-51 set up as a race bike.

    That's about all I can think of for now.

    KC-10 FE out...
