If you could own another bike....

... besides what you ride now, and NOT something you've owned before, what would it be, and why? For simplicity - because I know we all could list a dozen bikes we'd like to own - try to give your #1 choice.

For me, it's the Honda CB1100. I love the classic styling and the affordability. Simple, clean, great reviews, seems like it would be a terrific day-trip rider.

'03 FJR1300
'07 GS500F
'86 FJ1200
'80 CB750F
'76 KZ750
'69 CB350
(and the spousal unit rides a Ninja 500!)

Mine would be a KTM 1290 Super Duke R. It sounds amazing, crazy power, and would be a great commuter/day trip bike.

I have my eye on the CB1100 too, the Deluxe version. If only it had a bigger gas tank.

Liking the look of the new Yamaha XJR900, looks classic/classy and fairly light weight compared to the FJR......would have to be the limited edition in Kenny Roberts colours though.

If someone else pays the maintenance upkeep, Ducati Hypermotard.
If I've got to pay, maybe a DRZ400SM, BMW 1200RS, 690EnduroR

I need a bigger garage and a more understanding wife...

I'd like to own a small adventure bike of some sort -- a WeeStrom maybe.
