If BMW is bringing that 2013 blue R1200R to Canada, I'm ordering one. It's just the "right" colour for that bike. I know the red is a little faster, and the white can hide in snow banks, the black costs more......but, I'ver heard rumours that the blue one can swim?

Nothing retarded about that. It's slow, it's funny looking, goes anywhere and is a lot of fun.

I got a new '88 Tdub when I was 14 and still had it when I got married (until someone stole it). Now I think about getting another one. They are fairly cheap if you shop around.

Well, if I could part with the Daytona and the Buell, I'd go with an F800R. Red/silver.

I think I will start looking for one of these. A standard bike with shaft drive, simple engine but still sporting enough to keep me entertained. I guess I just ain't old enough at 36 for a cruiser.
....and yes it IS the 2 valve 1100 I want.

If I were bringing home a Guzzi, it'd almost have to be the Griso. Preferably the flat metalllic green with the brown saddle. Sorry, I can't figure how to link photos from an iPad...

That would be the absolutely stunning Griso SE

The past few days I have been thinking about an early (2001-2005ish) Yamaha FZ1 to upgrade to from my current ex500. Due to the age difference between the two, I could practically trade. Sell my ex for around 3K, take the money to an FZ1 owner. I don't know, just started thinking out loud here...

Light, powerful and nimble? What do you consider a heavy bike?
