In the most perfect of worlds where I could have anything I wanted: a Britten V1000


In an unlikely but possible world: a Ducati D16RR DesmoSedici, and/or a Bimota Tesi 3D



In real life, that I genuinely probably will buy: a Ducati 998 and/or a Norton 750 Commando



For my daily use, I can't find a better bike than my good old Ducati Monster, although if BMW took that nice new six they've got and built a naked version -- a K1600R -- I'd be very likely to buy that.

I have been testriding stuff for fun the last few years. Below is my list so far of what I've tested, and what I still want to test.

This is my short list at the moment,
in order:

Ducati HyperMotard 1100S EVO
Ducati StreetFighter
MV Agusta Brutale 1090
Moto Guzzi Griso 8V
BMW K1300R (if I can get one)

BMW K1600R (if they build one)
Buell 1125CR (if put back in production)
=====

If money is an issue:
Kawasaki Z1000
Triumph Street Triple R
Ducati HyperMotard 796
=====
This is what I've testridden in the past

couple years that Id say is worth a look:
BMW R1200R
Ducati Monster 1100S
BMW K1300S
Aprilia Shiver 750
Ducati 848
Triumph Speed Triple
BMW S1000RR
BMW F800GS
Aprilia RSV4 Factory

Triumph Daytona 675
Aprilia RSV4R
KTM 950SM
KTM Duke 690

Yamaha FZ1
BMW K1600GT
=====
This is what I've testridden in the past

couple years that didn't make my list:
Ducati SportClassic GT1000
BMW F800ST
KTM RC8
Harley Road King
BMW K1300GT
Suzuki SV1000
Harley XR1200
Harley VRSC (V-Rod)

Victory Hammer S
Ducati MultiStrada 1200S
Triumph Rocket III Touring
Triumph Bonneville Thruxton
Triumph Tiger 1050
KTM SuperDuke
Harley Softail
BMW K100
BMW F800R
Ducati Diavel
=====
This is my list of what I still need to test:
Bimota Tesi 3D
Aprilia Tuono V4R

Aprilia Tuono
Aprilia Dorsoduro
Benelli Tornado
Norton Commando 961
Honda CB1000R

Suzuki B-King
MV Agusta 675 Brutale
Triumph Tiger 800
Ducati StreetFighter 848
=====
This is my list of what Id specifically enjoy
a test on, outside my scope:

Ducati 1199 Panigale
Ducati 1198S or 1098R
KTM RC8R
Honda VFR1200
Honda CBR1000RR
Triumph Sprint GT

MV Agusta F4
Motus MST or MST-R

Personally, if you're going to put modern USD forks on go the whole hog and fab up a swingarm and extend the shock mounting points too.

Apart from a couple like the Guzzi V7 I've never seen so many revolting looking bikes: not a classic, restrained or soft line anywhere, the styling looks like confused Rorschach tests crossed with angry insects with a car radiator attached. The engines look like something you might see powering a hotel washing machine. Top it off with garish "Sea-Doo" style paint jobs and seats that for some inexplicable reason all point skyward, I wouldn't ride one if they actually offered the bikes to me for free never mind buying them. Dam.

Here, get some class:
