    Guilty pleasure bike

    So what’s your guilty pleasure bike? Something you wouldn’t admit to wanting to ride but on the inside you’d go for it? To me it’s a giant couch gold wing or an old Vespa.

    Britten V-1000. The part that I would feel guilty about is the felony theft to acquire it.

    A super long, super awful handling, practically no brakes, hand shift chopper. Preferably a Knucklehead.
    For five miles tops.

    Cushman Eagle. Neighbor had one when I was a kid. Always wanted to ride it but never got a chance.

    That along with TZ750

    More realistic and guilty would be CanAm and MP3 spiders. Maybe tw200 and one of those silly OCC choppers

    Britten or TZ750 are guilty pleasures? More like straight-up dream rides. Throw the NR750, Desmosedici RR, Doug Polen's FBF 888, and an RC211V in there for good measure.

    I'm thinking bikes that seem terrible or counter to what many consider here to be "real" motorcycles.
    Can Am Spyder is the perfect example. Or an Rokon 2WD.

    Purloined Puffery

    I would feel guilty about riding any race replica which displays another man's competition number.
