    Maybe I have heard to many Lincoln 405D mobile welders but I want a old school looking bike (1930's/40's) with some modern fitments (brakes etc) and it be powered by a KUBOTA D1105 3 CYLINDER DIESEL ENGINE. :1drink

    Now that I am getting older and more choosy (but even less fancy) these are my bikes to get:
    WR250x or DRZ400sm SUPERMOTO Duties!
    TW200 setup for knarly dirt riding. Think poor-mans trials bike.
    GS500e with a katana 600 rear wheel to fit a 150 series tire. Or a 1st gen sv650. Both with suspension work. For commuting and street rides that are not supermoto-ish.

    BUT for a cool bike that I can cruise out to eat on with the wifey: URAL ST (the one without the sidecar) in desert camo color. Just because it looks awesome.

    Absolutely stunning. Won't hold my breath waiting for Honda to bring it to the U.S. though. :cry

    If they did, it would certainly join my wish list, alongside these:

    Moto Guzzi Breva 1100
    Suzuki TU250X
    Ducati 900SS/CR (in yellow)
    original Ducati Monster 900
    Yamaha FJR1300
    Triumph Thruxton
    and a few others, but most especially this

    Today I want to trade my DR650 for the new Weestrom. This is not out yet so by the time it is I will have probably moved on.

    OK - for those of us without eidetic motorcycle memories, can someone let us mere mortals know what model this is? I read a translated article about the CBF 1000 [1200?] weeks ago, and I like it a lot - but it didn't look like it would make it to the US...

    I want a Gen. II. Hayabusa.

    Tonight is "Test-&-Tune" night, at the local dragstrip, and I have a lotta' fond memories of a Gen. I. and I there.

    been lusting over the new tenere till the last few weeks and now Im all exited about the 800s from BMW and Triumph.
    Been doing the street for 40 years and think Id like to try an adventure bike.
    II might just wait till the japs make an equivelant of the f800 or the Triumph 8
    Reliability is my main concern and not all that sure about english and german bikes .
    If someone wants to tell me good or bad about those 2 brands Im all ears.
