If I could find a clean 1976 Geneva Green RD400 that would be fun. That was my first new bike and I should not have sold it.

My dream garage today?

Just saw a vision - my vtx set up a little more for touring - add a batwing or something
A big thumper street dirt like my old xl500
Add a fun little street bike like a harly xl1200r or a ujm in 700 or 750 cc ...

I'm already smiling ....

New day...new bikes

I still kinda have a road king itch... But the big vtx is scratching that pretty good...
I think I would like to try a high speed tourer like a concours or st1300....
Not that a vtx 1800 can't run pretty fast....
I just think I,d like that other riding position too - like a bandit or st1300

Hopefully I'll want one tomorrow too since I'll be buying one then.

I know. I've seen your pics on some other forums were both on as well. I know you like it. What other bikes have you had?

I had my heart set on a ninja 1000. But this 650 is more comfortable. And really the 1000 overkill for me. Even though I'm tempted by the power I think the 650 will actually be a better choice for me. I've had a CBR 600 and VFR800 so far. But both of those hurt my back. The 650 just seems to fit me so well.

This is my first motorcycle, I had a few scooters in the past that I used to race around on before this. Those were fun too.

My dream bike has always been a Speed Triple... but I knew that, for me, would be suicide for a first bike. So I've been working my way from 50cc to 1050cc, lol.

Really torn between two REAT bikes:

Kawasaki Versys 1000: can't beat the weight, the power or the smoothness of that 4-cyl engine



Moto Guzzi Norge: Heavier, less horsepower, more truck like BUT, (and a big but), it's eye candy!!! and that engine!!!



As I can't afford any of them, I'll stick with my trusted versys 650 (it's a versys, it has 2 cylinders, so, I guess I have both those bikes in one )
