After much deliberation I have to differ from all your opinions.  >:D My dream bike is definitely a Triumph (Any model). Some models I would like to ride can be viewed at this link: http://www.triumph.com/;)

I like your opinion very much as long as it stays with in-line triples.
Those current parallel twins, such as Bonneville, America, Speedmaster, Thruxton... are weak and soulless. A bad choice IMO.

In order:
1/ Speed Triple
2/ Rocket 3
3/ Daytona
4/ Tiger
5/ Street Triple? Maybe...

For once, I disagree with your choices Jabu!
The best of Thiumph is definitely the Push-up range!

Good Morning!!!

Yeah, I've seen "in-line triples" in the movie Total Recall. I prefer parallel twins, it's more natural, and I only have two hands.
Jabu is slow this morning.

Best bike ever? Most definately, without a single shadow of a doubt, undeniably ...

BMW R80GS Kalahari - unfortunately only 55 units ever built.

- Dashing good looks
- Indestructable boxer engine
- Torque like a tractor
- 21 inch fron wheel
- 36L petrol tank
- White Power shock
