    '07 - 1050 Tiger
    '05 - DR650
    '84 - Honda Elite 125

    Alright I thought this would be easy and the three choices would roll right off my finger tips on to the key board.
    I have a BMW GSA and would keep that, have a KTM 690 E/R and would keep that...but then a rally prepared version would be nice and the OP did say any bike. I was going to say a Ducati 1199 P/Ror some other exotic for the a third bike but they don't fit me very well, not to say I wouldn't give it a try :D

    That'd be my three I suppose...so many bike though!

    so I want a cruiser so a DL1000 or 650 as my 2 up
    a 300 Vespa or the 350 from Piaggio
    and a DR650 or KLR650 (like the one I have)

    sounds all good! of course I am 2 bikes short.

    I'm quite pleased with my stable of 4.

    '86 Honda Helix for everyday knocking around and slow trips
    '12 Honda Silverwing for longer/faster trips
    '08 Suzuki S40 for a fun cheap cruiser
    '11 Honda CBR 250 just because

    Total investment $16k.

    For me it would be:

    1: 1966-1968 Lambretta SX200 Uber rare and probably the BEST Lambretta ever made.

    2: 1974-1979 Vespa Rally 200 What scooterist wouldn't want a Vespa Rally?

    3: 1977 and up Vespa P200 This would be my daily ride. :ricky

    For me the first two would be the equivalent of the 1961 Ferrari 250GT California Spyder from Ferris Beuller's Day Off. :wings

    Changed my mind

    1. Vespa GT200L (currently own)
    2. Vintage Vespa 2 stroke manual shift (have Genuine Stella 2 stroke)
    3. A carbureted EVO Harley, preferably a Dyna Superglide (wanted one all my life, will probably never get one)

    Three isn't enough. I'm pretty happy with the four I have now:

    Kawasaki Versys 650
    Kawasaki KLR 650
    Yamaha Majesty
    Kymco Super 8 150

    Eventually I'd like to replace the KLR with something lighter and the Kymco with something newer. Right now there is nothing out there that I I'm that interested in getting.

    My list has only changed slightly since I posted back in 2013. Still have the 1050 Tiger and DR650 but change the scoot to the Scarabeo 250 and I'd say that's about as nice a group of 3 bikes as you could ask for. If someone wanted to swap an 800 Tiger for my 1050 I'd be in for that but otherwise I'll stick with what I have.
