If money wasn't an issue what bikes would you want in your garage

Recommended Posts

Fellas, I can't believe nobody chose the big boy on the block. The Kawasaki ZX14!! This is my list,

1. Ducati's S4R S Testastretta(130hp)

2. Ducati Monster S2R1000

3. Honda CBR 1000RR

4. Honda Super Hawk 1000

5. Kawasaki ZX-14

6. Suzuki Bandit 1250

7. Ducati's Hypermotard

Man looking at all these bikes had my blood pumping!! If you guys like the DRZ400sm, I would advise you to go on the Ducati website and check out their Hypermotard bike.

Here's mine...It's not pretty...But I want one...

http://www.m1030.com/model1.htm

M1030M1 Diesel Combat Motorcycle

This is no wimpy bike with a converted diesel generator for an engine. This is a high performance enduro bike that will run over 100 mph, revs over 7000 rpm and will climb the proverbial "brick wall" while getting around 110 mpg.

The engine was designed in part by Dr.Stuart McGuigan of the Royal Military College of Science at Cranfield, UK and has been further developed to it's current performance level by HDT and F1 Engineering

The feasability study and the first concept model was based on the Kawasaki KLR 650 gasoline motorcycle engine, however the production diesel engine is built from the ground up by HDT and F1 Engineering

The engine configuration is a liquid cooled, normally aspirated, 584cc (36 cu in) double overhead cam single with four valves per cylinder. Diesel fuel supply is through a special Fuel Injection unit and single injector developed for the engine by Wayne Hangen of UNIQUE INJECTION in San Diego, California. It currently develops 38hp at 5500 rpm and produces power between 1500 and 7000 rpm, the turbocharged development version develops close to 50hp.

The engine has multi-fuel compatibility and can use;

a) Commercial Diesel Fuels, including low sulfer fuels, such as CARB Diesel

:thumbsup: NATO Military Spec Diesel Fuel

c) Bio-Diesel (B20 or B100)

d) Aviation Kerosene including JP4, JP5, JP8, and AVTR

e) Kerosene

Kawasaki Motors supplies the KLR 650 rolling chassis which is then modified to accept the HDT diesel engine.

Front suspension is stock KLR 650 with the exception of different rate springs selected for the new application. Rear suspension is a multi link system controlled by a special, single, coil over shock absorber developed by F1 Engineering specifically for this bike. The shock is a single rebound adjustable, nitrogen filled rebuildable unit manufactured from lightweight, non-corrosive, aerospace materials. Although it is infinitely adjustable by interior valving the shock was kept to a simple adjuster in order to maintain the specific characteristics developed for the bikes use.

See signature... ;-)

O.K., maybe I'd add an Aprilia SXV 5.5 Supermoto and Bimoto DB6 just for the smile factor. The unlimited funds might come in handy for keeping them running :-)

Dunno man, I'm pretty sure you'd come over whinin' and cryin' to ride some of my bikes. Of course, before I'd let you touch the good ones, we'd make you ride around on the 250 Nighthawk, while we laughed at you and probably threw some things too.

:thumbsup:

1. Ducati Hypermotard - for the street

2. Suzuki RM-Z 450 SM or Honda CRF 450 - only for race track

3. KTM EXC-F 250 - for dirt fun

That would spend a lot of fun :-)

I pretty much have what I want. My DRZ and my Honda ST 1300. However my son bought Katana this sumer. That's the first sport bike I've ever ridden and it's a hoot. So I would have to add a sport bike to the list.
