For me it would be a Kawasaki H2:





A Moto Guzzi Le Mans:





An MV Augusta American Sport:






Just a few of a very long list.


Forgot a significant one.  Imagine finding a new one in a dusty crate in the back of some country dealership.  Put on modern rubber on that badboy and...uhhhhhh...

The big triple? Not even with modern rubber, my balles just isn't big enough.

This yes.


Or this (guy who owns the stationary shop near my house has a cherry example).

I put 35000 miles on a '99 R1100S when it came out. Had it for a little over a year and traded it for my KTM Adventure. So much slower than it looks.

How reliable is that KTM? I want an RC8R but the closest dealership that carries them isn't very close (I can be in 3 different states before I get there) and I'm still not sure if they even know how to service it.

:shattered dreams: Thanks for the heads up. One of the reasons these bikes interest me is the size of them. Late at night when I'm counting out my nickels and dimes and dream of once again acquiring a motorcycle I input my size on cycle-ergo.com and it doesn't look ridiculous when I try those BMWs.

Another 'want(ed) to buy' of mine lacks in that aspect:

I've been seriously thinking about getting a Z1, I explained to my wife that it is a preferable mid life crisis to a 20 year old girlfriend. She seems to think that if I got a Z1 or a 20 year old girl that I wouldn't be able to ride either of them properly anyway.

A Z1 would probably be the safer option.

The Z1 might help you get the 20 year old girlfriend.

I replaced my fork seals once and went through hell sorting out the carb--eventually I stuck on a Dellorto and that was way more tunable.  I did everything myself.  The RC8R is a much more modern beast though and I have no experience with that program.

No, its just going to help you get a girlfriend who was 20 when the Z1 came out.

Fang said he was an old fart so he might go for a 63 year old. As long as she is not "fat".
