'06 Buell Ulysses - Hell yes

'06 Kawasaki Vulcan 1600 Classic - Great bike, but no. I am just not into the heavy cruiser. Even mama, who kind of pushed me towards it, says the Uly is way more comfortable.

I've had mine one year. I've been looking for another ever since. No luck so far. PM me if you see one for sale please.

I had been thinking about selling my 2004 Thruxton but lately I've been thinking about riding it until it falls apart. Maybe I'll just keep it.

My 2000 CBR 600F4 I would buy again when I bought it (2001) - great SPORT-touring bike. I wouldn't buy it now as I'm 11 years older and have a one year old daughter (so I shouldn't ride quite as aggressively).

2007 KLR 650 - I wouldn't buy mine again.

I'd get another FJR1300 in a heartbeat!

While I'll admit that I haven't had much variety in my rides - I've 2 Suzuki Burgman 650s and currently have a VStrom 1000, I could still could not imagine being without my FJR1300. Highway riding or commuting - I just love riding it.

If it got wrecked or worn out, I'd buy another FJR1300 for sure.

Not a beast but

My WR250r, what a fantastic versatile little bike!

The more I ride it the more I like it, I've already put more miles on this, bike this year than I did my XR650L all last season.

At the rate I am going, it will need an oil change in a month, or about another 1500 miles. I thought 250cc might be too small, but in this package it works really well.

The last new bike I bought was a DR650. Yes, ABSOLUTELY.

no, but that speaks more to my interest in other bikes as opposed to disliking my current sv1000 at all.

I would like several bikes: ms1200, speed triple, cb1000r, fz1, and rc51 an old 919, a gs11000s etc...
Supermoto bikes exist so that 40 year old men who know better can act like total assholes.

1998 BMW R1100RT - Would I buy it again? Nope. It has been a good bike and done everything I've asked of it but after several overheating issues when stuck in traffic I'd like to go back to a liquid cooled I-4 engine.

2001 Honda CBR 929 - Am I glad I bought it.... YES! 11 years later and it still brings a smile to my face every time I get on it. Would I buy another one, no. My knees can't handle the riding position for more then an hour anymore.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most

06 SV650 - if I can only have one bike then definitely, but I'd like to have two (or more), in which case I'd probably go with something a little bigger and a supermoto
