For all those saying a lottery ticket, I think we have to have a math lesson on 49% of Apple stock vs a lottery ticket ;-)

Or the White 1958 maybe?

Classic fins, sleek design, and white-wall tires.  Nice.

skipg - 2011-10-26 8:13 PM Winning lottery ticket!

This so that I could buy all the other stuff!

First up would be either a BMW K1300s or a Triumph Sprint or a Ducati Multistrada... or just stick with my all-time favourite Honda VFR, and also get Tony an MR2 (he's mr2Tony for a reason!) and then... whatever I feel like! 

I'm a beemer person, too. I'd go with F 800 GS and K 1300 S for starters. I'm looking forward to retiring someday with a K 1600 GT/GTL, but maybe go with a Can-Am for ease of use.

The BMW dealer near me sells BMW/Triumph/Ducati. I wasn't impressed with the Sprint. Feels shotty compared to the German and Italian bikes.

That makes me sad about the Sprint!

I've ridden the entire BMW fleet (with the exception of the R1200R) and every year the K1300s makes me want to buy it... however, taking the S1000RR around the race track for a few laps was a TON of fun!

Haha my wife and I are in the same boat, just reversed.

I have a bad jonesin for a Suzuki M109R Boulevard, but she insists I cannot purchase my bike until she gets an MR2. I guess fair is fair, gotta start saving those pennies.

Ooooh - I'm not usually one for more of a cruiser style, but friends of mine (writers/photogs for an on-line motorcycle magazine... coolest job ever!) had one for a long-term loaner from Suzuki to do a write up on it.  Most of my friends are sport bike riders - but this thing got the most attention by FAR that weekend!

I have a sport bike now but I find that it isn't quite as much fun riding 2-up on a sport bike. Also my dad is a long haul rider and 6-8 hours in the saddle on a sport bike riding with him is a bit long for me.

I test drove an M109R and it was a great combination of relaxed riding position with ridiculous amounts of power. Handled like no cruiser I have ever ridden before too. Now if only I could get the funds put together.

What sport bike do you have?  I rode a 2003 VFR 800 from 2007 til I sold it (sob!) in February this year.  I put about 60,000km on the thing by the time I let him go to someone else - but I did 1,000km days on that bike and though I was definitely glad to get off at the end of the day, it was no problem at all for the riding position.  Then again, it's also more of a sport touring bike so the riding position isn't all that aggressive.  There's no way I could do that on a Gixxer or an R1, RR, 1198 or something similar.

I have a Suzuki RF900RR right now. Fun bike, but as my dad liked to say after driving it back from Arizona, "the seat feels like a cinder block with spikes in it".

Could probably be made to be more comfortable but I still don't really enjoy riding it with the wife on board, just not as fun. But my wife really likes the way the bike looks so she said I have to keep it, working on getting the Suzuki so we have something fun to ride 2-up without totally losing the fast and furious aspect. I have only had a short test ride on the Suzuki so far, but I definitely liked the taste I have had so far.
