However, putting the head stuff on one side (pun intended) and getting back to the lust theme of this thread, what I want most days is this:

I've owned 6.

I see a K13000S in my future. I think it is the best, most stable High speed Sport Touring bike ever made.

How about one in red?

Ruby is looking for a new home. I'm not in any real hurry to see her go, but she needs a new home by spring.

I've owned 4. Against my better judgement, I "want" another: S1000 HP4.

I thought about the K1300S as a high speed sport tourer. Bought a ZX-14R instead. Not disappointed.

Pete, I didn't know there were any TDR's in the US. I'm near Seattle. If you are ever in the neighborhood, I'd love to see that bike in person!

FJR400R is Japan-only standard-retro I-4 - looks sharp, but only made to meet licensing / power restrictions.

FJR800 is a wish-list bike - Does Yamaha even make an 800cc engine anymore? Crusier twin or off-road quad or snow-mobile motor?

S1000 HP4

ZX14R would be my second choice.

The FZ8 is a standard, slotted inbetween the FZ1 and the FZ6, with an 800cc I-4. I suppose they could make an FJR version if they wished.

As long as wish-list bikes are permitted, I'll take a BMW K1600R, please.

The motor is just a sleeved down FZ1 motor though, so I don't see any benefit to losing the extra 200ccs... weight is the same.
