Keep my R1200 GSA
1978 BMW R80/7 (Already in the shed)
1989 BMW R100 GSPD(already in the shed)
1990 Honda Africa Twin RD04 (Already in the shed)
So that leaves me with just wanting one of the original R100GS HPN's from the 80's (thumbs)

Here's mine....of course being a fantasy garage they'd all be split brand new.
Honda 1000 Africa Twin, (Tough one as it would probably be the most used of my Five, I'm a big fan of the GS800, but the new Africa Twin has caught my eye)
KTM 450exc.....In my opinion it's the best for off road fun
Honda Goldwing.....If you're going to have trip on a Big Plush Motorcycle, why not the biggest and the plushest?
Yamaha Tmax Scooter.....Big Scooters are brill, enough said
CCM450.....Rough-road or no-road strap on some soft luggage and head for the hills.
Africa twin? Really Steve. I guess you have ridden one? I have n't and probably wont, but I have been following the long termer they have on MCN and they have thrown a grand at it and still the power is n't blowing the skirt up? I did see one out here and to be honest it look like a 5 year old design. What say you? Oh and you made a mistake on the KTM obviously it would have to be a 525 (which are getting rarer than hen's teeth now) (thumbs)

mmmm that means I need to get rid of a few from this list

Suzuki GSXR1100K 89
Suzuki GSXR1000K1 01
Suzuki GT250X7 77
Honda NC700X DCT 12
Kawasaki KDX200SR 90
Royal Enfield EFi 58
Moto Guzzi Griso 1100 57
Yamaha V50 step thru 72

For now I would only swap the NC for a new Africa Twin DCT but that's about it. What I would like most is the time to get the Gixxer 11, X7 and KDX up to really nice condition, drop the 80 motor into the V50 and of course more time to ride them all ; )
