A friend has one of those. Never gets ridden, but he's probably not willing to sell it, either....

I want a new FJR1300, every day. Wore mine out, and miss it. It took me for many great rides.

Realistically (Something I'd be able to afford):

Suzuki GSXR750,

or

Kawasaki ZX6R

Something along those lines. Might not be the prettiest bikes in history, but who cares, you can't see 'em when you ride 'em.

This is what I lust after.



The girl is a little too fast for me though.

She's Leslie Porterfield, and you don't want to ride with her if you can't handle 200+ MPH on a motorcycle. (aka: "Fastest Woman on a Motorcycle" per Guinness Book of World Records).

I'm lucky, I guess. I love to look at motorcycles and spend a portion of everyday doing that but I only dream about owning two of them, the one that I own, the F650GS, and someday, a K100RT, preferably a white, ABS one.

And thanks to the poster above I am reminded of the MG Stelvio, I am off and on with that one as well.
+1

I'm picking up a 2010 Versys tomorrow but it was a very close run thing with the Stelvio. I couldn't get a decent test ride on one and have always had a soft spot for the V so went for that. Great bike and I'm sure we'll be very happy together but that Stelvio pic has done me head in a bit.

The pic of the R1200R is even worse because that's what I'm trading in!!!

Insane thumper . I'd own one but they are here.

Love the SMT too, and of course the ever present MG Griso.

Are you getting that from Rossendale Kawasaki by any chance?

No Ray, Earnshaw's in Huddersfield. He's a good bloke at Rossendale Kawasaki but the first place I tried (for a Versys) was Earnshaws. Got a good part-ex and a few extras thrown in so didn't shop around too much. Just hope I get across the Pennines safely tomorrow.

Good luck with it, and post some impressions. I bought an 1150GS last August, but the other bikes on my shortlist were the Tiger 955 and the Versys.

If you see a black GS hooning around between Bury and Settle, give me a wave
