    I've owned 6. :dunno

    I see a K13000S in my future. I think it is the best, most stable High speed Sport Touring bike ever made.

    Ruby is looking for a new home. I'm not in any real hurry to see her go, but she needs a new home by spring.

    I've owned 4. Against my better judgement, I "want" another: S1000 HP4.

    I thought about the K1300S as a high speed sport tourer. Bought a ZX-14R instead. Not disappointed.

    Pete, I didn't know there were any TDR's in the US. I'm near Seattle. If you are ever in the neighborhood, I'd love to see that bike in person!

    What is a FJR800? I'd like to see one sounds interesting.

    FJR400R is Japan-only standard-retro I-4 - looks sharp, but only made to meet licensing / power restrictions.

    FJR800 is a wish-list bike - Does Yamaha even make an 800cc engine anymore? Crusier twin or off-road quad or snow-mobile motor?

    The FZ8 is a standard, slotted inbetween the FZ1 and the FZ6, with an 800cc I-4. I suppose they could make an FJR version if they wished.

    As long as wish-list bikes are permitted, I'll take a BMW K1600R, please.

    The motor is just a sleeved down FZ1 motor though, so I don't see any benefit to losing the extra 200ccs... weight is the same.

    less valve area = more intake velocity, lighter crank/rods/pistons, blahblahblah

    Well, picking the F800R up even as we speak. :clap

    Now, if somebody'd he'p me out with the Triumph, I could get busy finding the RT.

    Sorry, Gryph, not my bike, but my buddy in Seattle used to own one. It might be around here somewhere?

    Hey - nobody ever posts a bike here that I would NOT like to ride.... It's fun looking at the choices.

    While I'm sad that white is no longer available the 2013 Pikes Peak looks good and kinda familiar..
