Default Re: Ack!

Seriously speaking, why would you rather have 1000cc touring bike instead of, say, this 171-on-the-rear-whee 1400 Kawi? If you don´t want to use all that power the torque is still there on the lower revs. And it is at double measurements.

Under 300lbs - a Bultaco Metralla replacement a comfortable saddle

really good handling

brakes

and

a comfortable saddle



So, Erik give us a Buell Blast with real suspension, keep the belt drive and give us a real counterbalanced motor and shed about 80 lbs and you've got it.

Default Re: Design your own 'perfect' motorcycle.

800cc Single, 4-valves, manual compression release, kick start only

6-speed trans

Belt drive to keep things tidy

Featherbed look-alike frame, but from titanium

Clubman bars, head-down, arse-up riding position

Polished tank

BMW-like spoke wheels to allow good tubeless rubber

Solo seating

Exhaust trumpet to wake the dead

No oil leaks

Triple disc brakes, SS lines



...and it'll never happen. Pity.

You're going to have to explain whether you're in Finland or Buenos Aires.

Well "Confessions of a Dance Floor" was kind of Club/House style cd and my girlfriend stripped to it for me and I didn't mind.

Lemme get this right, the "MO Valuebike Shootout 2000" number 6 (i.e. the loser) is the bike of your dreams? Keep it up.

Default You guys got it all wrong!

620 cc 2 stroke single.



Dirt bike chassis with current technology dirt suspension.



Street legal.



7 speed (minimum) transmission.



BRIGHT! headlight.



18" rear and 21" front tires that last the life of the bike and provide decent traction in all forms of off-road and road conditions.



Slim ergos with 4 gallon gas capacity and 150 mile range.



Nimble and tractable enough for Eastern woods.



Stable enough for 90 MPH sandwashes.



Comfy enough for 80 MPH+ cruising on I-95.



"Stealth" mode to avoid les gens d'armes.

Partly because I've ridden and owned heavy bikes (currently got an ST1300) and light bikes (also have a 650 VStrom) and all in all, I enjoy light bikes a little more. But mostly because I figure it would be a hoot and way prettier than that new Concours.
