    I honestly ride and love them all for different reasons. That’s why I can’t stop buying! :). I did Seattle to Philly about ten years back on a burgundy ZX-11 in 2.5 days. That bike has a special place in my heart. Fast. Smooth. Big enough. Great bike. I love the 1994 BMW K1100RS aka “the flying brick”. So solid!! And just enough wind protection without being to large.

    I had a ZX11 too. It was a great bike. Big, powerful and smooth.

    My R1150RT is a great bike. It’s very nimble for what it is and rides great. The wind protection on the highway is amazing. Love it!

    I’ve got a 2010 with 5k miles on it. Runs and rides perfect and oh those brakes. I’m attached to it and can’t get lathered up to buy a new one.

    Yep, Scott Russell's.

    I have Alessandro Gramigni's 1996 Fast by Ferrari bike that won two rounds of AMA Superbike but I have been trying to get Scott Russell's HMC Ducati 996RS for a while. I finally have it and it's almost ready to go. I'll hopefully get to give it a good shakedown at the track in late April (in your state).

    I may have posted this before, but I think this is still going to happen - I've been out of the motorcycle game over 17 years, and don't really plan to jump back in. However, my father isn't riding his bike any longer, so he is giving me this (not the actual bike, but this model / year / color etc).

    My dad did the same a few years ago and gave me his Harley. He stopped riding at 82. Gave me his 04 softail night train. I Never thought I would enjoy it, but I do at times. It opens up some opportunities to cruise with a different group of riders. A cruise Down to get some seafood, hang out, relax and return. Something different than my Ducati and bmw rides. Enjoy it and think of dad when you ride.

    Got K3 GSX 1400, turned 39k kilometers on way to garage. Came with yoshimura st1 cams, full Devil exhaust and power commander III. Pulls like freight train, 144Nm/106ft lb on rear wheel. That wind blocker and mirrors needs to go, both are useless. Heated grips are nice, it was +7°c/44f and I had with my summer gloves with out a problem.

    I didn't know what this bike was. A little research and I learned it was not in the US market. Sounds like a really fun ride.
    I'm doing a quick 4 day trip with a friend in Western North Carolina and Eastern TN in two weeks. Really looking forward to it.

    They are actually an incredible bike. I've had two. Incredible torque and extremely comfortable.

    Easily the most comfortable non long distance tourer I've ever had. Only surpassed by a Goldwing and Electra glide.
