Honda XR600R and Toyota FZJ80 Land Cruiser

Both are pillars of reliability, over built and the last of their kind from a simplicity standpoint.

I'm pretty sure my two are close: My F650GS and my B5 Passat wagon.

Both have/can do/are:
  • relatively bullet-proof engines that are mod-friendly
  • challenging and poorly-designed electrical systems
  • carry almost anything you can pack on
  • nearly unlimited factory farkles
  • timeless design
  • occasionally frustrating diagnostics
  • questionably designed suspension that requires more attention than most
  • great fuel economy
  • respond enthusiasctically to better tyres
  • step-children of the family
  • in no way garage queens (most of the time!)
  • make me happy

and so forth.

If the F bike was blue, I'd have to call them twins.

SV650 and Subaru WRX's. Both are relatively light weight, pretty good amount of power, faster than you'd think and pretty cheap too. In fact, many sv owners also have a wrx. I did!

You forgot the most important part - they're at their sexiest in blue.

Land Rover Series and a Yamaha XT550, both rugged and uncomplicated.

My ZRX1200R & a Dodge Challenger. Both are relatively fast, comfortable, and retro-stylish.

As both of my bikes are modern retros, their 4 wheel twin would be as well.

For my Triumph Bonneville T 100 a new Mini Cooper would work.

For my Vespa GTS 250, the Fiat Arbarth would be a good choice.

Sorry to lazy to look up pics.

Mine would have to be a black Challenger, though.

My twins. Both take me where most don't venture.
