    Another BMW R1200S recently joined the household. Light, good low end torque, spectacular high end power, very stable at, hum, high speed, and very comfortable in any situation.

    Most bikers who never rode a BMW before fall in love with this very limited production bike: A little more than 400 sold here in the U.S. Maybe 2 or 300 left?

    It's a little bit like the Vanquish of the motorcycle world: sexy looking, darn fast but not crazy fast, great brakes, not the fastest bike by far, but ready to be driven at speed all day long.

    I recently picked up an all original old Suzuki enduro. Not a show bike, has plenty of patina, but it's kinda cool, and I can actually ride it and not worry about getting a nick or scratch.

    Astounding HP numbers. Back in the day the fearsome TZ750 that everyone was afraid to ride was 120HP.
    I've had sport bikes up to around 150HP. I can't imagine 200HP+

    That's a great bike.
    I'm lusting after a 50th year BMW R Nine T. It's a retro version of the R75's with the fade paint I couldn't buy when they were new. Spoke wheels, big brakes, 70ish paint.
