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

    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:clap 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

    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 :D

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

    If I was going for a "real motorcycle", and since I really like the whole automatic thing, it'd be a Mana GT because it's sexier than the NC700X, though if it really was my money it would be on the Honda.

    Honda NT700 becuase the phrase "Sport Touring" is in my opinion the best of both worlds. If done correctly, it satisfies everything without compromise.
