If you wuz a RICH man . . . your top 10 list!

If I wuz a rich man, my Motorcycles-ONLY garage would contain:
(In no particular order)
  1. My current BMW K1200LT (or maybe a new one every year)
  2. My current '98 Kawasaki ZX-11 D6 (my first sportbike)
  3. BMW R1200GS (for Alaska!)
  4. An H-D FatBoy (with a solo seat)
  5. KTM 525 EXC (for getting really DIRTY)
  6. BMW K1200S (in all carbon fiber, of course)
  7. Triumph Rocket III (when the Fat Boy just isn't enough)
  8. Yamaha R1 Raven (Hey...I needed a flickable sportbike)
  9. Suzuki Haybusa TURBO'ed (replaced next year by the new Kaw ZX-14 TURBO'ed)
  10. 1952 Vincent Black Lightning (Yes...just like in the song!)
Well...I ran out of spaces. I guess once you have 10 in the stable, what's 10 more?! So . . . what's on YOUR list?

I guess my collection would be a smaller version of Leno's.
Some special old friends from my past: (perfectly restored of course)
Hodaka Combat Wombat (mine actually had a Montgomery-Ward sticker "just stuck" over the factory data plate)
Bultaco Pursang 250
Penton 125 Factory prep
441 Victor BSA
X 6 250 Hustler Suzuki
750 Triple Kawa
Norton 72/73 750/850 "Bastard"
75 Honda 250 Elsinore
91 H-D Ultra
(and a few more)

As well as some from my Dad's past:
37/38 Square Four Ariel
35/36 Indian Chief

And I'm sure many, many more newer and older bikes ; and of course THE LT.

I love the old Iron. I'd keep my LT but would add to the '36-'47 HD Knucklehead inventory, any Crocker I could get my hands on, a Vincent Black Shadow, and a gaggle of Excelsior and Indian inline fours. And probably a hayabusa, just because.

That's a hard one... Would want the GSA and S model along with LT. Then, I'd buy some for closest buds so we could all go riding!
