We are getting maxed out. My wife has two 1982 Gpz 550s, a 1995 900SS and a 2002 VFR 800. I have a 1986 NS400R, a 1994 900SS, a 1998 R1100S and a 2007 ST3S. I am thinking that a 955i Daytona would be a nice addition.

Lots of second bikes spring to mind...if I only had the room and the money. I like the looks of the BMW Nine-T Racer (took one for a test drive...neat, but I was cramped) and the Triumph Thruxton R (wonderful sound, nice riding position). I'd like a superbike before I get too old...a 998 sounds about right. Then there's my buddy's 1973 Guzzi that needs restoration (been toying with the idea of a project bike). Maybe a KTM Superduke...I want to be able to lift the front wheel on a whim.

A 2-stroke. For the noise, the smell of Castrol R and all the other memories.

Just missed a decent looking '74 Suzuki GT 380 for $1300, passed on an ugly looking '74 Kawasaki H2 for $2700. A Yamaha RD 250 or 350 LC would be nice, all the rage when I was in high school in the UK.

I?ll second that Hervey. When I was at Laguna Seca last year a guy had a tz750 street legalized . We always rode 2 strokes, wish I had more money and a bigger garage.

Me, too! I'm getting ready to put up a storage shed in the back yard so I can move gardening equipment, etc., out of the garage to make room for more motorcycles! I've been starting to look for a nice '77 RD400 in French Blue, like the one my college buddy bought new back in '77 (man, did I lust over that bike...), or possibly a '79 Daytona Special.

RING, ding, ding, ding, ding!

Yep, definitely a 2 stroke I have an RG500 that shares space in the garage with the Ducati My STS4S is quicker (though not by much) and handles better but the extra weight makes it feel like a complete tank in comparison. The ST4S is a better trackday bike but for a fun blast out on the road the RG500 wins every time!
