    First of all, I completely agree, I would like to ride them all.

    I also would love a vintage Vespa.

    I would love to ride a CX650 Turbo, any or all of the 80's turbos for that ,atter.

    And I forgot about the GTS1000, I'd love to see how one rides.

    Winning the lottery makes most people poorer in the long run so maybe this is a good plan for the short term joy

    I’ve got a couple bikes I’ve regretted selling over the years. But I can’t say there’s anything out there that would be worthy of a bucket list for me. If there were I’d go buy it.

    Yes.
    And George Beale was hired by Honda to build up to 6 replicas, 1 or 2 for them, and he could build some as well to sell. He took delivery of one from their museum and sent it to England for disassembly to reproduce.
    I've seen and heard an RC166 twice. First was back in 1995 at Del Mar, as Team Obsolete showed up, with Jim Redmond riding demonstration laps. Second time was I guess 5 years later at Moto GP when Honda USA brought one over for demonstration in their display. The sound is simply ear destroying. Magic!!

    Not really sure, closest thing I can think of is the KTM's. Like a 1090 ADV S, the SD GT, 790...

    Wouldn't mind building a super V-strom 1000 either. Like a new 2019 with a high performance TLR motor in it. :D
