Of current:

BSA A65L - Yes, partially because it was all original when bought with only 4 k miles. And $400. Nice to have a classic, love kick start. Always wanted a BSA after spotting one that looks just like mine when I was about 16. Been pretty reliable, used to commute with it when it was only 25 years or so old. Still do sometimes. Fun in a purely simple and mechanical way.

04 Bonneville. Absolutely. Like the BSA but drop dead reliable. Miss the kick start though. Easy to modify for looks, and performance (at least the carb models). A pleasure to ride, but can't easily hold a lot of gear for long distance.

12 Tiger 800. Yes, reliable, fast, tons of capacity for gear (with givi trekkers). Almost set up for my needs now, just need to reduce the drone. The drone is a bother, but brought on by my own action (chopping the baffle).
It's no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society
