well the first three on the list I would never consider, Never.  But I'm Australian and we don't have that same patriotic bent our sepo cousins have. 😉

I hear the H/D admiration is an acquired taste,  one that I and suspect many here never acquired,  but this is T7 forum so that isn't surprising.  Patriotism is great, but I ride Japanese and Italian motorcycles and think they're the bee knees.

Ditto, but I live in Wisconsin, USA (and I worked in Milwaukee a long time and the company I worked with made metal stampings for Harley).

 

Erik Buell is a cool guy, but he had his issues with Harley.

Alta made a great M/X electric bikes YEARS ago, until Harley partnered up with them (How did that work out?)

"Buy American" is a great idea (for America) but ford and chevys are made in Mexico and Harley is importing a whole slew of M/C's from overseas.

Harley's being an "Acquired Taste"... I think that is a polite way of saying you are too easily influenced and to turn off the TV.

 Out of the 9 bikes I have owned so far,  6 were Japan, 2 were Italy, one was Spain...

My T7

A custom offroad sidecar, likely based on the new Suzuki 800DE (or T7) so I can bring my dog with me

KTM 500 EXC with long range tank, comfort seat (but not with rally screen, keep it light...) to take with me when travelling in the 4wd 

XT500 to reminisce my younger days

Kawasaki H2 SXSE to go on group rides

 

Seriously cant think of anything else that would actually get used. Maybe a Gold Wing just for giggles.

Hmmm.

 

6?  Hmmmm.

 

My T7

MT10 - for sporty fun day rides

My Tracer 900GT - haven't found anything I'd rather have for road trips yet. 

Panigale V4 - mostly just to look at, and occasionally take out for a burn 

A CRF450RL for more technical stomping about

Triumph Rocket 3.  Mostly just to have something outrageous.

MT-10’s unsurprisingly featuring a lot here… another gem Yamaha I love the way mine rides but prefer T7 for trips.

@TeneRico700 Ural Gear Up's looks fun and is a great conversation starter, but at $30,000 CAD it is a bit ridiculous.

I follow a guy on one once, to talk with him. He said they might top out at 70 mph, but more fun at 45 mph on a slow secondary road.

Parts are hard to find and one should be willing to work on their own bike. Still, he said it was his second favorite bike (Then winked and said he only had two bikes).

Yeah that one would just be so I could ride in the dead of winter here in Edmonton, it would exclusively see snow-duty 😆

Settled on 4


2006 R1, want to replace with V2 Panigale

XR650L,  want to replace with a harder enduro 450F or the like

T7

Ducati DX  

 

Got to have a sport bike.  Want a light enduro for the local trails.  The T7 and DX are both in the same segment but on different ends.  I keep the T7 for a dual-sport and a guest bike.  The DX is for long distance.  A cruiser might be nice, something like Vmax.....

If I could own six motorcycles I would go back in the Time Machine and retrieve a few that were owned and sold.

 

1.  1973 Suzuki TS400

2.  1973 Suzuki GT380

3.  1985 Yamaha RZ350

4.  Any year Honda ST1300 if Honda had updated the bike with factory cruise control.

5.  My currently owned 2021 Yamaha Super Tenere ES

6.  My currently owned 2021 Kawasaki KLX300.

I mean, my T7 sees daily riding all through the winter here in Calgary commuting to work.   Heated gear, some nice Motoz tires and iGrip studs and you're golden.  Heck, this last winter I didn't even bother putting the studded tires back on, as the GPS's did so well as is.   The T7 is a killer snow bike.
