Ones you have, or have owned in the past or never owned...i put 3 down as just one seems a bit restrictive.

I would have

Aprillia pegaso 650 older Rotax twin carb engine version. (have owned)

Yamaha Fazer 600 mark 1/2 (have owned)

Yamaha TRX 850 (never owned or ridden one)

If I could just have one it would be a miracle, the missus is completely against them, so much so I'm dumped if I ever bring one home..............

but if I could have one it would have to be a Ducati Sports such as a 749 8)

I've had a good few bikes, currently own a Suzuki GSF 1250 SA Bandit.

Great allrounder but I'm selling that, just don't need such a big bike at the moment.

I'd personally go for something like these to replace it...

Honda CD200 Benly

BMW R80

Nice little scooter of some description

ps Anyone wanna buy a big Bandit in great cond?

:wink:

Well, I always fancied the Harleys, I don't care if they are a bag of bolts and rattle themselves apart I like them, they have appeal as to which particular one why the Fat Boy FLSTF.

Next, well years ago I fancied the Royal Enfield Interceptor, why I don't know I just saw one and liked it.

Thirdly it's got to be something unstoppable and with that an Ural two wheel drive side car combination, yes I know it is a rip off of a ww2 German combination but good ideas last.

But alas after restoring a Pulse Adrenaline as my first foray into motorcycles, I was warned off by the medics who asked me not to ride a motorcycle, as my thought processing speed can be kind of slow, so I have a near complete much modified with Suzuki parts five year old customised Pulse with only 4k miles on the clock decaying away in my shed.
