Moto Guzzi Griso 8 valve (not yet available here in the U.S.A.)
I agree with jasonsmith..... Duc 848 and BMW K1200S but since he took the silver/blue/white I will go back to the classic blue/white from the 2005 release. I like the silver/yellow wheel option from this year too!! I just read that Ducati is offering 1.9% for 72 months on 1098 superbikes. Thats low $200's with no $$ down.
Ducati Paul Smart SportClassic. I know it isn't the fastest bike out there but the whole experience of it is magic.
This is a good question and one the hopefully will need to be answered in the near future. I've got the sport touring category settled with the VFR. The only thing I would trade my 999R for is a 1098R or the D16RR (my wife would never allow it). I guess If I could add another bike it would be a goldwing.
my buddy has one of those he may be leaving in my garage when he goes to Maui for a while. I told him I'd store it and right it every once in a while for him...
Aprilia Tuono R
Plus a 1200GS or the ST1300
And..a RC211V.. :biggrin:
Let me know how you like it if your bud leaves his before I get mine. I've ridden a few FZ6s from my old job, but nothing for more than a couple hundred feet really. I just love the aesthetics, ergos, pirce, valve train maint interval, price and since it's a very popular bike in europe, it'll be supported for a long time. It's an all around winner in my book.
Other bike???? I'm have yet to purchase my VFR, so I guess the VFR is my other bike. :unsure:
Funny how very few would cross over to the "Dirt" side. Being from the dark side originally and living at the base of the Rockies, I would probably opt for something simple and reliable on/off road. Maybe a KLR. Either that or dual sport my Mastiff. That would cover the bases for me. I have to deal with this dual desire regularly.
If I had room in my imaginary garage for another bike (and time to ride it) then it would probably be the newest Monster, the 696. I'm fairly short, and the small Monsters just fit me right.
A Speed Triple would be tempting as would one of the new BMW twins.
hell, if we're talking fantasy here... I'd just take Leno's garage... cars and bikes. That way I don't have to do all the shopping...
Too many choices!!
Suzuki GSX-R 1000-Lowered-Vortex extended swing arm-Pingle air shifted-Power Commander-Single 100 shot NX nitrous express set up-Pirreli Diablo skins and a custom candy coated paint job!!
Thats if i had to narrow it down cuz man!!I see all the other guys line ups and only wished i had a garage that big to keep em all in!!
The Gixxer would be my new school choice aside my VFR but as for old school i think it'd have to be a late 70's early 80's Kawasaki KZ1300-nuff said!!
1098R hands down! :drool:
Wouldnt' hurt to put an RC30 next to it either.
A lot of very cool bikes! I'm glad no one mentioned Hardly-Ablesons!!
Keep em coming
MV Agusta F4 (for street and track)
Aprillia RS250 (for the track)
1978 Kawasaki KZ1000 done up like Bubba Zanetti's bike in Mad Max!
Hey - not fair! I just looked up the Honda New Zealand website and there are so many more models not available (or no longer available) in the US:
- Valkyrie Rune
- Super Blackbird
what a great thread!
i'd have to say a Duc Multistrada and a Bimota DB6r. gotta love those Italian V-twins! ooh...and then an RC51 and a Kawa Concours 14. all i know is, if i had unlimited funds, i'd have a lot of bikes!
The one bike that I would really like, that never made it into production, was the Morbidelli V-8.
Lgn001 - where is your avatar from? It's very streampunk-esque
