But then again, I could NEVER own one. I don't know why you'd ever want a sportbike for the street.

Took the R1 to the BMW dealership and spent 30 minutes on my dream bike...

Flickable, torquey, comfy, bulletproof.

O.K. Don't let my wife know but today and today only I am pondering the image of the streetglide she wants sooo bad. The idea of the two of us riding a few hundred miles and pitchiing a tent somewhere is in my head. The glide would be a looker and have enough storage and comfort for the two of us on a long weekend....

Oh crap and who am I fooling I want a new red CBR1000RR just cause they would be a blast on the mountain and all my friends have 600's. I gotta have more horsepower than them don't i???

MG Griso

love the looks... and the special edition colors, which were only available in Europe.. So beautiful. I'd never give up my GS, but if I could have 2 bikes, this would be the one for around town.

well, the bmw R12R above has certainly got some cool aftermarket bits (Ohlins, hugger, handlebars), but even stock, the thing's just timeless.

and it was probably the easiest-to-ride bike i've ever ridden.

definitely my next bike. here's hoping the powers that be see fit to bring it to the States in 2011.

Hey Basque,

I don't know where you are, but in case you are interested the BMW dealer in Nashville has a new white R12R on the showroom floor and they are eager to move it.

Bloodworth Motorsports - ask for Glenn. Tell him Mr Breeze sent ya. He priced it to me at about $1500 under the sticker. I am not ready for a new ride yet though, and I am leaning toward HD anyway.

Ugly or not. I still want the Multistrada 1100S. I know the 1200 is supposed be "more" in every way but I still want it.

Duc Hypermotard 1100. That's my new one, but I'm sure it'll be on the list until I get one. Another one always on the list is an 02 or 03 Honda Blackbird. And here are the rest, in no particular order;
1200 GS Adventure
K1300GT
1200 RT
1200 Multistrada (kinda off and on about this one)
Everything else I'm pretty "meh" about.
