Probably a Vmax, a good old hotrod if ever there was one.

Well, seeing's how I myself have a 99 Camaro SS AND an 01 Suzuki GSXR-1000, I think it's a real good combo. Neither particularly practical, but both a lot of fun to drive...

If this is your first bike, you might want to avoid anything too extreme. Something like a Ninja 500 or GS500 is pretty close to a Z28, performance-wise, without being something that's too much bike for a beginner.

The bike would have to fulfill quite a few requirements:



1. It would have to be slower than it looks.

2. It couldn't have room for more than two people.

3. It would need a compartment to store the hair comb and LA Gear shoes.

4. It would need a high-end tape deck and some killer speakers.

5. It would be obsolete.



So, that would leave the Kawaski Voyager.

A Buell is proabably the closest thing you will find to an american muscle car. Tons of torque, and a throaty rumble.

A Ducati S4R OR S4RS, hands down.

I'll second the VMax nomination. Impractical, bad suspension, bad handling, and goes like stink in a straight line. Looks badass too.
