    @alvincullumyork Have you seen this toy hauler!



    I think 20' of garage would be sufficient,

    Yeah, since it's a dream, it's not about practical concerns. It's more just for fun.

    I love these threads....

    -Enfield 500 -Because it can seriously do it all. Including die on you at stoplights and demand valve checks as often as oil checks.

    -W650 -a Brit twin that's actually reliable, and fills in for an Airhead if you want to tour.

    -Ninja 250. Sometimes, you want to ring a bike's neck.

    -Guzzi Eldorado. Because if you have 10 bikes in your shed, at least one should be able to cross the continent in style.

    -HD Evo Road King. Chicks dig 'em.

    -Bandit 400. It's nice to play racer without breaking the speed limit too badly, and four cylinders do it better than two.

    -Kawasaki H2 two stroke triple. We're dreaming right? Gotta have something to piss off the Prius drivers...

    -Ural hack. Gotta take the wife and kids along too sometimes.

    -Panigale. This is the fastest one right? And it comes in red? Sign me up. Does it have an option for an obnoxiously loud exhaust made of exotic materials that costs $2000? Even better.

    -DR350SE all tricked out. TAT beast.

    I was actually given a Prius (shudder) so I think I may be the only prius driver on earth who actually knows what an H2 is.:lol3

    Been a long time since I have posted on this, some tastes have changed so here goes:

    Original V-Max: POWERRRRR and V-Boost to remind me of '80's turbo lag

    Vincent Black Shadow: Old School POWERRR and just beautiful
    upload_2018-10-11_16-15-11.jpeg

    Vespa, because you have to wring it's neck (Gulf livery optional, but awesome!)

    Dreams bikes, and ride bikes.

    1. Vincent Black Shadow.
    2. Britten
    3. Not sure if I want an RZ 350 or RZ 500 next, cause I would ride it.
    4. Laverda Jota
    5. 900 SS (Already have)
    6. Keep my current 400 EXC, or maybe trade it for a 200 EXC, cause I'd have other bikes to ride.
    7. KTM 990 Adventure R
    8. BMW R 100 RS (I can't tell you how many times I have shopped for one of these, just haven't found one in a condition I want for a price I'd pay while looking)
    9. BMW R 1200 RS (already have)
    10. Can't decide between an XS 650 street tracker, or a new Ducati Supersport S right now.

    My Dream Bike garage would be populated with motorcycles that, in showroom configuration, have the correct ergos for me. I wouldn't have to spend a penny on tall seats, lowered footpegs or anything else, only to have a bike that is still just 80% (if even that much) of what I require to be comfortable.

    At present, the only motorcycle that fits me perfectly -- perfectly -- is the current generation GSAW with the factory Enduro bench seat. A few other bikes are in a race for Second Place. The rest are built for Spongebob Shortpants.

    One of the things that I said in the original post is that stuff like that and injuries and abilities shouldn't be taken into account. So if you're 4'9" and you want a GS, not a problem. It's literally a "dream" bike garage.

    Fair enough, mate.

    I'll have the Panigale, please, with a Termignoni that can be heard in three counties.
