    Fantasy garage

    OK, it's raining here again and we've been playing this on a UK site, so lets see if American taste makes a great deal of difference to the choices:

    You can have three bikes in your garage, any three you want, but ONLY THREE. What do you choose?

    My choices change daily, but at the moment:

    Haga's R7 from WSB, gorgeous and he could put it anywhere. I remember a review of it by Trevor Franklin in a mag here a few years ago and he raved about its handling.

    Triumph cruiser thing that's coming out with the 2 litre + engine, for cruising on sunny days and doing stupid rolling burnouts.

    An RSV Nera for the obvious reasons!

    What do you guys fancy?

    Only Three?

    W-e-l-l, OK then...

    1. Britten V1000, the 1995 BEARS World Championship winner

    2. Haga's 2002 Playstation2 Aprilia SBK

    3. Tuono Racing

    1999 Yamaha R7 OW-O2, but a street version. I have always like that bike, but will never own one.


    1993 Honda NR 750. Again, I will never own one.


    2002 Tuono R. Got to cruse in confort and mine as well look good doing it.
    Carbs are a filthy animal, I don't eat filthy animals. Yeah, but bread is good, muffins are good, doughnuts are good.

    If I cold _only_ have the three bikes...

    1. VR1000 street version (woulda been a Britten, but I wanted to be original )

    2. 03 DR650L

    3. FJR1300

    I know it's kinda boring, but I gots ta be able to do the long distance thing, and I gots ta have a hard core sport bike. The DR is jus cuz it's the modern incarnation of what in my mind is the single (pun intended) best all-around non-touring motorcycle ever built, the 83-87 Honda XL600R.

    1. My Tuono, with all my mods plus a couple more that I haven't gotten to yet

    2. FJR1300 for sport touring with Tifanie

    3. One of the '04 liter bikes, probably R1 if judging by comfort alone, Kawi if judging for technology. I won't know for sure until I can ride one.


    But 3 is clearly not enough. The collection needs a K1200LT/Goldwing class bike, a custom chopper, at least one classic bike, a 916/996/998, a 600cc track bike, and a few others for good measure. 10 bikes plus a truck and trailer, a car lift, a bike lift, and a garage full of tools would be about right.

    2. how about a cruiser? maybe that big ass triumph rocket.
    2200 cc's. can you say torque?

    3. lastly...naked...tuono race....

    of course i have to keep my falco. i know it's cheating. you said
