I'm surprised by the number of BMW's in this thread. I wonder if those lusting after a Beemer have ever owned one?

From what I can tell this whole forum attracts a lot of BMW fans in general, probably due to the whole GS/adventure thing.

Yammy 465? That's an odd little (?) motorcycle.

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!
