Your fav motorcycle

Alright I'm actually just gonna show you all what I would get for a first motorcycle. I'm looking at either a moto guzzi (any of them really) or a suzuki vstrom. I like the Guzzi's because of their looks, dependability, and history. They are in fact older than Harley but they are Italian. I like the vstrom because of its performance for such a low price. The only reason I dont like it is because it's harder to maintain by myself. Also I havent decided what style I like better...

my bike I'll get next spring:
Honda CB 500


because for the first 2 years of motorcycle riding in Germany, the engine will be regulated at 32 hp. And the license costs you about 2000 bucks at least. God bless Pennsylvania.

next thing:
Triumph Street Triple


quite ugly, but get's you the best bang for the buck in the world, and oh boy what a bang it is
it's the best engine ever built.
GO TRIUMPH!!!

Well, personally, I like my own motorcycle.

I'm quite pissed that it's cold outside though. I hate not being able to ride.

I know I'll get attacked for saying this, but the motorcycle riding is way better than than the BMW driving, or any car for that matter. ....hum, maybe that's why my car is trying to break all the time now. It knows I love my bike more...

Cage FTL.

BMW motorcycles (at least the bigger ones, that's 1200 ccm) go at about 12000 Euros... that'd be 16000 bucks
the 800ccm (my choice) are about 8000... Euros. So that's 12000 bucks


or are they cheaper in the US?
