4. Moto Guzzi V7 Classic

What do y'all think?
Interesting group there!

I'd say #1 and #4, then you've covered street & dual-sport.

If only 1 is possible, I'd take #2

EDIT - no fair, you added the Honda after I posted! I'd buy the Honda.

+1. I read quite a bit about that bike today and the motor. I am a little enthusiastic about my earlier post about wanting the bike in my garage (a Zrx 1100) as it was knocked over by an anonymous bad Samaritan at work yesterday. It is surprising how much damage can happen by a bike simply falling over.
