If you had the money for three bikes which would they be?

One of the things I think about when killing time. Thought it would be nice to hear from you guys.

For me:

Goldwing
Xr650l
Less than 300cc scooter.. Not sure which one though.

What would you guys have?

I will have to give this one some thought. The problem is that I change my mind to often.

Harder than I thought

If I had to make a quick decision. Pretend a genie offered I would say:
R1200 GSA With all the goodies from Touratech plus a set of cast wheels and sticky rubber to commute/tour.
Ducati Desmosedici rr

Vincent Black Shadow

But if I had all the time in the world I would never have a solid answer.

Getting down to 3 is tough

But if money is no object
1. Bough Superior preferably the actual 1 owned and rode by Lawrence of Arabia (I'll only ride to church on sundays honest!)
2. For my daily rider, Robert E. Fulton's twin-cylinder Douglas motorcycle, the one he rode around the world at age 23 (in the early 30's) Rider/author "One Man caravan"(I did a piece on him many years ago, it is believed that his real life exploits were the base to start the Indiana Jones stories)
3. A scooter, not sure which 1, this reflex is only my 2nd (had a Riva 125 for a few K, not big enough for my fat butt) Nothing to big 200-300cc

I'll play and keep it simple and somewhat affordable.

1. Suzuki DRZ400SM supermoto
2. Yamaha Tmax scooter
3. Harley Davidson ultra (whatever the top of the line is) to replace my 06 FLHTi which I dearly love.

I'd keep my current scooter, Aprilia Scarabeo 200, as the small bike. For a medium sized ride, I'd go with a Burgman 400. And my dream machine would be a fully dressed Electra Glide. That would be my personal heaven.

Interesting how popular the Brough Superior is. It's the first one I thought of.

1.) Brough Superior

2.) Harley Wide Glide (2013 styled like an '83)

3.) BMW 2014 1200GSA (can't get the adventure in the water boxer just yet. I'd be willing to wait)

While I'm waiting, I'd through some Jesse Bags on my Vstrom 1000 and keep on riding. Speaking of which, I should probably place that order...

Just off the top of my head...

A clone of Marc Marquez' 2012 Moto2 bike

The CBR750RR that I beg and cry for Honda to finally make

F800GS, fully tricked for loooong tours

Hate to say it, but I could live without a scooter, so long as I still have my bicycles.
