    I will have the S1000RR for track days, this is just for putting on the streets, and blipping the throttle insistently at traffic lights.

    Mule XR1660 Street Tracker. IMO the street tracker most faithful to the XR badge. I cry myself to sleep thinking about this bike.

    Well... considering it's a dream garage, let's just assume it comes with one of Leno's mechanics to take care any wrenching you don't want for yourself.

    The mention of the Stortz and the Mule remind me that I've always wanted a flat tracker. Shoot, now I gotta hunt down my list and start over.

    Other than the first pick, I'm going to go with bikes that are current models.

    1) Harley Shovelhead FXR- It's just an awesome old school bike

    2) Ducati Diavel- Who doesn't want a stupid fast bike that's comfortable?

    3) Harley Dyna Low Rider- A really good versatile bike

    4) Harley Sportster 72- Great looking Sporty particularly in red flake

    5) BMW K1600GTL Exclusive- Probably the best touring rig with all the amenities

    6) BMW R1200R- Because everyone needs an all-around shin knocker

    7) BMW F800GSA- Do I need to explain?

    8) Triumph Bonneville 120- I've always wanted a Bonnie

    9) Ural Patrol- Because snow shouldn't have to be the end of riding

    10) KTM Super Duke R- 180 hp

    Interesting question.

    1. My 2009 Nightster with the addition of a Hammer Performance 1250 kit as my in town bike.

    2. My current 2007 V Strom. It has been a faithful companion since 2007 and it deserves a spot.

    3. My 1979 1000SP. I have a lot invested in it in time and effort... not ready to part ways.

    4. My 2014 Stelvio. This will handle the adventure touring duties.

    5. 2016 Roadglide Special. This would be my pavement only type rides.

    6. i would want a track bike, I like a more sit up style. Maybe a Ducati Monster, or a KTM super duke, or a speed triple.

    7. I really want to eventually own and tinker with a very vintage bike. I would lean to an Indian. Maybe a scout 20-30's era.

    8. I would need a dirt bike. I would want a thumper. Maybe a DR650.

    9. I like 80's muscle bikes. So how about a CX650 turbo.

    10. How about an Alaska winter rig... maybe a BMW airhead sidecar rig.

    Whats crazy is there was a ton of bikes I would love to experience some day so this was kind of tough for me.

    Honorable mentions:
    Rc51, 996 Duc, Griso, Triumph Bonneville, BSA Firebird Scrambler, Harley Sprint, Rickman Metisse, NEW Indian Scout, K75, Lemans, Guzzi Loop frame.... there are tons more... my wife hopes I never win the lottery... we would be deeply invested in motorcycles

    1. Husaberg FE570 - 4t woods machine
    2. KTM 950 SE - Adventure touring bike
    3. MV Agusta Brutale Dragster RR - Road/track
    4. KTM 300 EXC - 2t woods machine
    5. CCM GP450 - Lightweight adventure bike for BDR type work
    6. Triumph Tiger Sport 1050 - Commuter/tourer/sport bike
    7. BMW 1150GS sidecar rig - Dog-accompanied adventure bike
    8. Concours14 or FJR 1300 - Big comfy tourer
    9. Triumph Scrambler - Looks and around-town fun
    10. XR100 or similar small screw around bike

    Could lose the Speed Triple for an HP2 enduro but I figure the HP2 and 950 SE fill the same gap. Would like a kill yourself with throttle bike like a KX500 too but I think the FE570 probably works for that

    EDIT: Swapped Speed Triple for a Brutale Dragster. Because I can :norton

    Interesting choice with the CX650 Turbo. When I think '80s muscle bikes, I think primarily Magna, V Max and Eliminator, not the Turbo Bikes, but they are obviously a very '80s version of muscle.

    Time to change things up, partly because I have now ridden a Vespa GTS 250. I find part of the fun of scooters is the necessity of wringing their necks constantly, the GTS has enough power that you don't have to be WFO all the time.

    1. HD Sportster Roadster XR 1000, the factory street legal XR750

    [​IMG]

    2. CR500 Supermoto track bike.

    3. Vincent Black Shadow, uhhh, is any explanation needed.

    4. Suzi TW200, off road funbike

    5. Honda Reflex, the '80's dual sport/pseudo trials bike
    [​IMG]

    6. Ducati Multistrada 950, great bike for the crappy roads around here... and the good ones.

    7. Big Bear Choppers Titanium, how the FXR would be built today if EB was still with the company and the bean counters left him alone, with bags and FXRT fairing and removable trunk for traveling.

    [​IMG]

    8. Beemer R60 with Steib Sidecar, to get my side hack side on (I've owned two, sidecar rigs that is not Beemer/Steib combos)

    [​IMG]

    9. Frisco Chopper, the original club style bike, sorry Jax. (well, I guess the old Pan Head bobbers were the originals)
    But with a hand shift and a different exhaust.
    [​IMG]

    10. Vespa PX 125E. Fast enough to actually make it out of my driveway on Hwy 9 without getting creamed and hopefully to make it up the mountains, but still requires WFO... and GRIP SHIFT, woohoo!

    I agree 100% ! Way too much maintenance ! I have 8 , and that's 5 too many. And only 2 get ridden w/ any frequency. Hurts to see the others just sit.
    If I had Jay Leno's funds it would be a non-issue. But I don't.
    A word of advice, ,
    Don't " over buy" . Collections are great, maintenance, not so much. Ride what you have and safely. PaydayGabe in Vegas, :ricky.
