My '02 GL1800 Gold Wing is all the swiss army I'll ever need. It handles well (for an 800lb bike), has decent acceleration, and can carry 6 12-packs of Coke or beer in the trunk & side bags while still being able to be fully closed.

Ducati GT1000. For me, nothing else comes close to the range of possibilities this bike offers, and offers in style, to boot.

Hi,



My bike of course. Its a BMW K1200R, the naked one with the very powerful engine. I dont ride as much as I would like to and so enjoy its ABS and electronic suspencion.



Also its really unique, I'll never lose it amongst any number of other bikes.



Bit expencive but I also like the quality they give you for it, I'd say you get what you pay for.



David

Ok, the media is REALLY beating this to death. I work from home and this is all
that's been on!


I don't want a political discussion, but here's a fun link!

If you are a big Gerald Ford fan (?) I apologize in advance for my insensitivity.

"can carry 6 12-packs of Coke or beer in the trunk & side bags while still being able to be fully closed."



Easily the most important feature of any motorcycle!

My dad's Road Glide and Deuce both came with nothing.

I am not a newbie...I know exactly what I want. Logic is part of it, but you have to love what you ride as well. My goal is not to become an expert on the track, but to get a commuter that could also double as the occasional track day bike. I dont give a hoot who passes me on the track. I have been passed by 20 year old BMWs outgunning me out of the corkscrew at Laguna, so believe me I know what I am about. As Clint Eastwoods says..."A good man knows his limitations". I would buy a Concurs because its a) Fast and sporty b) Probably much more comfortable than my 6R for long distance touring. c) A much better sport-tourer than an ST3. I would still use my 6R for track days. I would buy an SR4 or a BMW R1200 because I want a naked bike that is comfortable, pretty reliable, and could also do the occasional track day. Re the Suzy 750...its a great bike...but if I do buy another full on sportbike it would be the Duc 1098, not another Japanese race replica.

I know the standard bikes have no tool kit, but the tourers have them standard.
