    In My experience...... The Hinkley Triumph's are good to go. Jap switch gear, and on earlier models, suspension. My '96 did not use or leak any oil!
    If dealer location was not a factor, I would own another at this time.
    A good, solid piece of machinery these days.
    BMW's.... not so much in my experience. I quit hearing "raves" about them 10 or so years ago
    Unless you do your own maint. it gets kinda pricy fast. The days of the 'Ol R90S are well gone past at this time.
    This is a major reason I ride a V-Strom now days.....:1drink

    at the moment a new BMW K1600 GT as a decent sport tourer that my SO likes and I'm sure I'll like too, I have no doubt it will be more comfortable for 2up touring than my 640 Adventure:D

    The '82 Katana (first one) ever since I lusted over the one in the showroom. In the last few years I found out they made and sold them in Japan for many years..:huh Now that would be a cool find in a crate somewhere.

    Yesterday I could barley contain myself wanting the new Super Tenere..until today when the salesman called and said "Ok I have one for you"..nah. Cant really blame me..it was black for god sake..black :puke1

    Also for the last few weeks I have had the urge for one of Big Bear's Venom prostreet choppers..:huh
    Cant really explain that one..might need another adjustment on the meds. :nod

    :dunno
    Why would any sane manufacturer choose not to serve in the hottest motorcycle market?
