Best thumper for Starbucks

I'm putting serious thought into purchasing a dedicated Starbucks bike.

My only "must haves" are single cylinder and those "high" fenders.. I think a bike looks more rugged that way.

What would be your suggestion ?

How about a "Have you ever drank Starbucks Coffee and regretted it thread" It can't be any sillier than some of the more popular regret threads being posted.

I thought about that,If they're popular do they have no merit? ADV is maybe half about bikes and what to do with them,and half worldwide social circle.

I guess different things have different merit for different folks.

Of course you'll need some Poser gear to go with the Poser bike

Definitely a BMW, and then you need one of everything in the Touratech catalog.

I'm loading up my Amazon shopping cart !

Cant really decide if I want to go with the "Adventure" jacket look or a full suit. With the suit I don't NEED to carry my helmet in, folks will figure out I rode there... but the jackets look really good and I can slip my Ipad into one of those big pockets. Suggestions ?

Kinda cliche.. and they don't really have those, "high" fenders. High fenders tell the world, "I'm an adventure rider."

Oh, do I sling the Digital SLR under my arm or can I keep it in some sort of tank bag or pannier ?

Starbucks is too expensive for thumper owners. I'm all about Dunkin Donuts or stealing free sludge from the lobby of the local chain hotel.
