I wouldn't say that Dak's entry gives rise to "real enthusiasm" but it does quicken the heart rate a bit...

I'm sure DAKEZ is sorely disappointed that his entry doesn't arouse real enthusiasm in you...





He gets that a lot.















































Seriously, NFE, if you suddenly had $15,000 to splash on any bike,

which one WOULD arouse some real enthusiasm???

I think I'd be plenty enthused with a 2013 Street Triple R and a broken in WR250R...

Can I borrow $15k till times get better?

NFE

BTW... Dakez, can you ring up those two, and I'll be by to pick them up... as soon as the $15k lands at my door step...

I got a ticket for tonight's LOTTO MAX = $20,000,000.

If I'm in the money, NFE, you're getting two new bikes dude!!

And BTW, those are pretty damned good choices.

Sure you wouldn't want a WR450F???

I'll be picking up a Street Triple from DAKEZ too if this damn lottery thing works out as planned.

DOGSROOT... I'm rootin' for your success in the lotto...

If you win, I'll start out with the ST3R and the WR250R...

When the mythical WR450R comes to the US, I'm sure you'll still be flush with cash and will spring for one more bike...

15000?

Used Duc Multistrada 2010 or greater if it existed at that price. The GS is lots of fun. The Duc is a kick in the ass fun!

What color would you like?

I'll even throw in a Leather Triumph Jacket and a hideous top box.

If my lotto ticket hits I will buy you and Dogsroot each a street triple R just for thinking of me.

Update...after replacing fork seals last weekend (a messy job) and putting on new pipes, the Low Rider is much more enjoyable. As I mentioned before, the pipes that were on it were obnoxious. The new ones are much quieter and deliver much smoother torque. The desire to buy a new motorcycle is not nearly so strong I think I will buy another in a couple of months though. Thanks to all who contributed.
