Default Top 5 Choices

I have a theory about motorcycle ownership that says I really need at least 2 bikes to cover all the riding scenarios I may encounter. That being said I have compiled a list of 5 new models that if I had the room and the bucks I would like to own. Not in any particular order my list is as follows..........

1. Aprilia - Tuono
2. BMW - K1600GT
3. Ducati - Multistrada S Touring
4. Suzuki - DRZ400s
5. Triumph - Bonneville T100

There are plenty of others both old and new I would like to own but these would be my top 5. I would like to know what bikes you guys would have on your list.

FZ800 for commuting and tearing around surface streets at 12k + rpms.

Moto Guzzi V7 for posing with a puddin-bowl helmet at bike nights.

S1000RR for "Go directly to jail" late-night turnpike runs.

A Goldwing for rides over 300 miles.

A Shovelhead HD to leak oil on driveways of people I don't like.
318 curves in 11 miles."

My Sportster.

A GSX-R750 for when I have a deathwish.

A new Triumph Bonneville (gotta have a Britbike)

A Guzzi V7 Stone (which now gives me three black standard-style twins, making this the most boring list anyone will come up with)

Something with a comfy padded tail trunk for the wife.

EDIT: I'll delete either the Bonnie or the Guzzi for a Genuine Scooter 170i, perfect for scooting to the store for a donut and newspaper.

Bill Clinton and Chuck Schumer are praising the Supreme Court for overturning an anti-gay-marriage law that they both signed.

SMT 1198 (if and when)

Thats all I'm lusting for now. But if it were what we would like then I'd take half of KTM's Line up, an old valkyre or Rocket III to cruise around on (pretty much the only cruisers big enough to not make me look like I should be at a shriners convention) and any 1k sportbike for a track bike.

1. All around street bike: Z750S (in my garage)
2. To cruise and ride with the gf on the back: M50 (in my garage, but I would replace this with a newer Victory Hammer S if I had the dough)
3. For sport riding: ZX10R (in my garage)
4. For fun (don't own): 2013 Ninja 300 .. and when will they have a supercharger for it?
5. Hmm .. maybe a Diavel?

Five bikes I lust after huh? While I'm not as old as Seruzawa I am getting to the point that new bikes don't trip my trigger much anymore. so I'd say:

1. My '09 Heritage Softy, I really like this bike

2. A T100 Bonnie, As Schizuki says, "gotta' have a Britbike"

3. Moto Guzzi Stelvio`.. As God says, "Gotta' have an Italian bike"

4. A bone stock '78 FXS Low Rider, I love theose things.. best looking bike Harley-Davidson ever made.

5. a Cafe`d '75 RD 400 with expansion chambers, for when I want to piss off my neighbors.

I think that would do for a start..
"Carpe` Throttelum -Loud Suits Save Lives"

"He said he's farting because of his medication"...
