MOTM - Jan '16
EICMA Show

Anyone else looking at all the new bikes being announced and thinking "My wallet and garage are not big enough" ?

Which of the new bikes would you like to see in your garage?

I agree with 3 of your 4. Not much interest in the 125 and 300 CBR's. But especially like the Z900RS Cafe.

I also like the looks of the mid weight (~800CC) adventure bikes like the BMW F850GS, Triumph Tiger 800, and the KTM 790 Adventure. Then there is the supercharged Kawasaki sport touring Ninja H2SX. And the older I get the more I start to consider a Geezer Glide like the new Gold Wing.

I really would love to have a Z900RS, one of the mid weight adventure bikes, and a Goldwing in the garage. Should about cover all my riding needs.

Three bikes that are only different by paint job and exhaust. And all three outrageously over priced.
