    Vanity has gotten the best of me; someone talk me out of an idiotic purchase...

    If you had more money than the Christian God, which motorcycle with upright handlebars would you buy?

    New and used bikes 2010 and newer are open for consideration.

    I only have room for one more motorcycle. The garage is already full; however, my heart has a motorcycle sized hole.

    this is what the gap does to a person.

    I still vote the FZ10.

    First choice would be the Aprilia Tuono. The Triumph Street Triple RS is a strong second.





    2013 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 ABS......Sargent seat, R&G frame sliders / fork protectors / engine case covers, Powerlet, Osram Nightbreakers, Vesrah brake pads, Pazzo levers, Akrapovic full exhaust, Power commander 5, pair valve block off plates, modified air box, reflashed ECU, suspension built by Traxxion Dynamics.

    2015 Kawasaki ZX6R.....Puig screen, R&G frame sliders and fork protectors, GB Racing engine case covers, Carrozzeria forged wheels.

    The above are unanimous sport choices, however if I were going to try a different taste, the only thing I've seen out that raises an eyebrow is the 2017 Harley V-ROD MUSCLE

    I like the FZ10 in person. I just want impressed with it after riding it.
    Tuono means "Thunder" in Italian. Super Duke would be so much cooler if those Austrians would loose that orange paint.....
    I still get excited looking at the original V-Max....... and I like Ducati's Devil
    How many bikes are enough?
    Just one more.......
