I'd love a KLR685...

Oh, wait, I have one.

But what I really lust after is an MV Agusta Brutale 1090RR.

CB600F hornet. Incredibly easy to ride, light, nimble and more than enough power for around town. I've also tested similar bikes like the Street Triple, ER-6F and SV650, the Hornet however would be the one I'd buy.

Interesting! I like the Hornet too, but I also like the Street triple! I think I would have a tough time deciding between the two. Love the Triumphs motor, but prefer the hornets styling! What was it that you liked about the Hornet?

Smoother engine (although slightly less powerful than the S3)
The hornet felt more nimble, it has a very small turn radius and feels slightly lighter.

I mostly do short distance urban commuting, so the hornet is the better bike for this purpose. But if I want a hoon machine, I'd go for the S3.

Borile, 500cc handbuilt thumper. Very expensive for something I would beat the hell out of, but good god is it a work of art.

PTS Vento 400 Cafe Triple

The PTS Motors Vento 400 Cafe Triple. Review from Kneeslider, see associated links. Ozzie design, American engine R&D, Chinese manufacture. Hope to see it sold in 2011. Hope. I'm a n00b rider so won't be ready for this until 2012 anyway, but once I am, looks very nice.

It may be imaginary, but what an ambitious imagination: A 990cc DOHC V-8, 275bhp, 22,000rpm redline.

I want to hear it, but above all, I want to spin up a V-8 that weighs less than I do.

Ya'll want some very nice bikes!

i was think of switching to something a little more tame ... like a Wee-Strom or the NT700V.

But after seeing a bunch of these ... wow ... i may need more room in the garage.
