Me 3,now excuse me while I take a cold shower
One of these three because...
1) The Soft Tail Slim. Only Harley I ever liked.
2) Bonnie. Best street bike I ever rode.
3) CRF 230. Saw one at the shop today while getting new tires put on my DR and it looked like it would be a lot of fun to thrash around on the dunes.
Nice bike, but they really need to trim that front fender down!?!
I find this an interesting thread. Most "want" bikes that are, for the most part, at least semi attainable. I don't see any real "dreams" of Brough Superiors, or Vincent Black Shadows etc. Makes my mad desire to own an R1200R look pretty reasonable.
Ducati Hyperstrada. I didn't even know this bike existed until I saw it at the NYC Motorcycle Show. Felt amazingly comfortable, with a great seat and perfect ergonomics for me. Liquid cooled 823cc L-Twin (of course) with110 hp and 65 ft-lbs, perfect usable power. All top spec electronics, and the semi-soft bags are included stock.
Not normally one to lust after fancy Euro bikes, but this one bit me pretty hard. The 18,000 mile valve adjustment doesn't hurt anything either!
Oh GEEESH! I JUST got a new bike! Why'd you have to go and show me that thing??
I guess it's too late to return it?
That Duc is BEAUTIFUL.
Yeah well, the soon to be Mrs. Randy did buy my new one as a gift... Of course a few months earlier she had asked me, if I could have any bike what it would be.... Then as luck would have it we wondered into a H-D shop and I spotted the 48... The rest, as we say, is history. Not that I'm complainin' at all! But, I am a Duc aficionado. Just hadn't stumbled upon this bike before now. I guess I better avoid this thread for a while, huh?
I'm sure it won't sell as much as they hope it would, but it seems to be
the most sensible Ducati out there at the moment, and this coming from
a guy who'd probably buy only the 1000 Sport Classic (touring version).
This seems like a great bike (and what some NC700X owners wish they
Sensible Ducati? I never thought I'd see those words next to each other, but you're right. I'm eagerly awaiting spring time so I can con my local dealer into letting me test ride one .
Ever come to the realization that there is something fundamentally wrong with your brain? I have decided to embrace it rather than fight it.
Interesting. I went to the same show, saw the same bike. While I appreciate it, it doesn't speak to me. Also didn't fit me very well when I sat on it.
Now the Monster 1100 EVO that was nearby at the same Ducati booth, that's another story... It already has me figuring out how to put a 3rd bike in the garage...
That EVO is a really nice bike. A real looker, and has the pedigree to back it up. But I don't think its the one for me. Didn't feel connected to the bike when I sat on it.
Thankfully with so many great motorcycles today we have some choice, what is one riders ideal bike, certainly isn't all riders.
I sat on it as well. Classic Monster ergos, which I know all too well, as I own an '06 S2R 800, in Red & White.
That bike is too pretty to trade in...
Don't trade it in.
Give it to me, and buy the new 1100 without the trade-in.
But I'll have to see a picture first!
I've been bitten by the Harley bug lately...
