All this talk lately of different motorcycles....what is the perfect number to suit all your riding wants and needs?
Just as a closet does not contain all jeans, or all suits, or all white socks (perhaps yours does...) a garage, in a perfect world, does not contain just one motorcycle.
I'm not suggesting collecting or amassing the greatest number of motorcycles is the answer, what is the minimum number of motorcycles required to fulfill your riding desires?
For me, I can get away with (not in order of importance)
Undeniable comfort for the long distance vacation.
Utilitarian, modest mode of transport for the Yukon or Alaska vacation, or points all the way south to South America.
3/ Harley Davidson Electra Glide Standard.
For me, there is the original, and the rest are (albeit capable) imitations. I'll take the original, thanks.
4/ Honda SuperHawk.
More than 2 cylinders can be wasteful. Light, capable of more than I am when the asphalt bear hard to port or starboard, something that keeps a smile on your face, gazing at it in the garage, or swinging a leg off it after Hwy 6 to Nelson and back home.
5/ something more exotic, perhaps a Moto Guzzi. Ducati ST4S.....
