First tell me your favourite bike money can buy.
Then I wanna know a bike under 1000cc
Then I wanna know the bike that’s actually the best to ride (you can talk about your current bike too)

Ps.
if someone makes a good suggestion. I will literally buy that bike this week

That money can buy = Yamaha YZR-M1 ~$4MM

A bike under 1000cc - assuming that litre bikes are not supposed to be included...
= Triumph DAYTONA MOTO2™ 765 LIMITED EDITION ~$19,500.

A bike under 1000cc - assuming that litre bikes (998cc) are included...
= Kawasaki NINJA H2R ~$62,700.

Best to ride - probably the smoothest bike I've ridden (current bike) = Honda CBR1000RR-SP

P.S. loved you as Reno Raines in Renegade.

And remember, this is not gambling like https://betpokies.com - in gambling a lot of things are determined by chance. But here it's all consistent, a good motorcycle costs good money.

If you had to choose between Daytona and Kawasaki, which would you choose? Riding around town, sometimes out of town.

The most winning?

WSBK - Bayliss, Checa, and Fogarty are three of the top Ducati riders and none of them had much success on the 999R - the years you mention Bayliss was in MotoGP and returned to win on the 1098 and Fogarty was on the 916 for most of his career. Checa was 1098/1198 as well.

It had success in BSB though I think with Shakey, Hodgson, and maybe Toseland?

I rode a buddies 999S for a couple sessions at a track day and it's quite the adjustment coming from an inline-4 600 LOL...

I wasn't a fan of the looks initially but it's grown on me over the years that's for sure, especially in race trim.

Favourite that money can buy? I've always been partial to the Vincent Black Shadow.

Sub-1000cc, I'd probably go for something like the Duke 890 or maybe the Aprilia RS660 (looks fun for the track).

Best to ride? I'd like a big adventure tourer, please. Enjoyed my 1150GS all those years ago--remember Boundary Bay track evenings? Lol. I don't have much use for riding a motorcycle on the street unless I can actually go on a trip somewhere, and these have enough versatility to do what I want.

In the meantime, I have a rather second-hand VFR800 to get me around--cost just a smidge more than my last set of bicycle wheels. Well, and the SV my brother-in-law wrote off years ago. Needs about a day to get it ready to return to the road--same as it needed 5 years ago!

Actually ,what I was saying is. The 05-06 were the best years of the 999 series and I would buy another one at the drop of a hat. As far as "RACING" goes.....the 999 series has won more titles than any other bike DUCATI have produced to date. Thanks for reading this.......and you can google the shit out of that too;)

The Pierre Terblanche designed 999 series has long been panned as being out in an impossible situation in replacing the Massimo Tanburini designed 916 , widely regarded as one of the most iconic machines ever made. Certainly the 999 was a better bike in most every way, except visual appearance, which it failed miserably.

916 - 4 titles (6 if you count the 996 version)
999 - 3 titles

Races - the 916 beats it too

Unless you mean some series other than WSBK?

....and I thought for sure you'd say the ZX10RR is the best track bike/dream bike. ;)
