my current 3 (cause one is never enough)
a fantastic 2 up sport touring bike, loaded with ESA (electronic adjustable suspension),Heated seats front and rear,cruise control, TPM (tire pressure monitor), ASC (traction control), Xenon Lights , adjustable windshield, autocom intercom with bike to bike communications, sat radio, valentine 1, Zumo 550 GPS this bike just loves to munch miles
2007 Aprilia RSVR Factory
was going to buy a S1000RR (still have a small refundable deposit down on one) but ran into this bike during the wait last year sitting stilll new in a dealership in Kansas for about 57% of retail and just couldnt pass it up as it was high on my drool factor for a long time before ownership
factory ohlins susp front and rear, OZ forged light weight wheels, factory carbon fiber all wrapped around a 143hp liquid cooled V-twin, the bike that won the masterbike competition for several years in a row!!
2008 Yamaha WR250R
My go anywhere bike, fuel injected with 26k miles valve inspection intervals (very long for a small dual sport) this bike is basically 1 cylinder off of the yamaha R1 motor. makes decent power and will haul my 220 lbs at a gps speed of 80+ great for bombing down dirt/gravel roads and single track not to mention around my ranch.
these three are IMHO def keepers as they each bring something fantastic to the table in being one of the best in their own certain niche of riding. and having three such bikes means never having to compromise on my bikes suitability for the type of riding I want to do on any given ride.
