I thought I'd maybe pick up a used road glide or road king sometime but always liked the dyna and that fat front, twin headlight did it for me. Handles better (put some longer/better rear shocks), 100 pounds lighter and just looks KOOL! Don't tell the wife.

Very nice! A few photos from the site.

And another link with a savage taken in different direction with a strict budget in mind.

Funny how BMW gets all the credit for turning the liter bike world on it's head recently... From a pure performance point of view this was IMO a bigger game changer than the S1000RR.

I love my FJR and would be hard pressed to get rid of it. However, there are times where I'd like to release my inner hooligan. Thus:

2010 Yamaha YZF-R6



And to fill the ADV touring part and round off my collection:

2012 Super Tenere:

Duc 848

Got an itch for a Duc 848 damit. Don't need one as I have 3 bikes already. My brain says "why do you want a torturing ride higher maintenance bike?" However, termignoni really does speak in subliminal and visceral language.

Gonna see one for sale tomorrow, maybe I'll come home with one.

Maybe lame, but I would like to have the late 70's Yamaha DT400 I had back.

It had a YZ aluminum swingarm on it and the bike was almost pristine. I only replaced the front fender and put some lower handlebars on it. The only thing it needed was a expansion chamber as the one it had, had a crack in it.

That bike would easily run over 100mph, had oil injection and was a street legal two stroke. I haven't seen one so clean since and I have looked.

IMHO, the best "sleeper" bike on the market. Good power, great handling, good 2up, great luggage capacity...and most importantly IT LOOKS LIKE A MOTORCYCLE!

Ideally, I would get saddlebags, a pipe, Ohlins, better mirrors and a gold superbike handlebar...voila! Perfection.

Seriously, go test ride one.
