If you had the money for three bikes which would they be?
 
One of the things I think about when killing time. Thought it would be nice to hear from you guys.

For me:

Goldwing
Xr650l
Less than 300cc scooter.. Not sure which one though.

What would you guys have?

I will have to give this one some thought. The problem is that I change my mind to often.:lol3

Harder than I thought
 
If I had to make a quick decision. Pretend a genie offered I would say:
R1200 GSA With all the goodies from Touratech plus a set of cast wheels and sticky rubber to commute/tour.
Ducati Desmosedici rr

But if I had all the time in the world I would never have a solid answer. :deal

Lotta love for the Italian bikes on this here sub forum. You guys must like wrenching! :eek:

Ken OBSC 12-27-2012 09:56 AM

Only need one, a Piaggio MP3-500.

Getting down to 3 is tough
 
But if money is no object
1. Bough Superior preferably the actual 1 owned and rode by Lawrence of Arabia (I'll only ride to church on sundays:clap honest!)
2. For my daily rider, Robert E. Fulton's twin-cylinder Douglas motorcycle, the one he rode around the world at age 23 (in the early 30's) Rider/author "One Man caravan"(I did a piece on him many years ago, it is believed that his real life exploits were the base to start the Indiana Jones stories)
3. A scooter, not sure which 1, this reflex is only my 2nd (had a Riva 125 for a few K, not big enough for my fat butt) Nothing to big 200-300cc

Three bikes is not enough, that's why I have four:D

wannabe1 12-27-2012 04:01 PM

I'll play and keep it simple and somewhat affordable.

1. Suzuki DRZ400SM supermoto
2. Yamaha Tmax scooter
3. Harley Davidson ultra (whatever the top of the line is) to replace my 06 FLHTi which I dearly love.

I keep 3 licenced/insured at a time.
Scooter around town.
Sport touring(K Bike) for day rides/weekends.
GSA does long trips and 2up touring
KLR is a winter bike.
I don't have a car.

ColinDoyle 12-27-2012 04:26 PM

1 - the everyday hoon: XR650R supermoto style
2 - the road trip mount: some kind of boring sport-touring bike - ST1300, Concours, or BMW RT
3 - the scoot: Italjet Dragster 180cc

Chindog 12-27-2012 04:45 PM

I'd keep my current scooter, Aprilia Scarabeo 200, as the small bike. For a medium sized ride, I'd go with a Burgman 400. And my dream machine would be a fully dressed Electra Glide. That would be my personal heaven.

JerryH 12-27-2012 06:18 PM

1. Goldwing FB6
2. Yamaha WR250
3. A non maxi freeway legal scooter.

DaveStockwell 12-27-2012 06:31 PM

Interesting how popular the Brough Superior is. It's the first one I thought of.

1.) Brough Superior

2.) Harley Wide Glide (2013 styled like an '83)

3.) BMW 2014 1200GSA (can't get the adventure in the water boxer just yet. I'd be willing to wait)

While I'm waiting, I'd through some Jesse Bags on my Vstrom 1000 and keep on riding. Speaking of which, I should probably place that order...

Nihon Newbie 12-27-2012 08:03 PM

Just off the top of my head...

A clone of Marc Marquez' 2012 Moto2 bike

The CBR750RR that I beg and cry for Honda to finally make

F800GS, fully tricked for loooong tours :D

Hate to say it, but I could live without a scooter, so long as I still have my bicycles.
