    I came close to buying one of those this summer. They call MT07’s in America now, like they do in the rest of the world. I ended up with a Triumph 1050 Tiger:

    It looks like an adventure bike, but it not really designed for off road. It is really is sport tourer.

    A couple actually. The middle one in the top photo is long gone. The trike is what I bought for my wife. It now has an SS 100" fire breathing monster motor in it. Mine is the Dyna. I also have a 250cc scooter but it's up North in another garage.

    Nice!.....FWIW, there's a place down here called San Diego Harley Davidson. It's a giant warehouse filled with bikes, pool tables, big screen TV's were people just hang out and talk about bikes and stuff. A really fun place to check out.....of course I don't ride a Harley so I always fill a little out of place, but it's very cool

    1957 AJS 350.jpg '07 BMW K1200s.jpg XLH 883-01.JPG Las Vegas, NM.JPG Yes, I do ride; pretty much every day, in fact. And have done since I got my English driver's license, and my first bike (a 1957 AJS) in July of 1967. I sold the BMW K1200S a little while ago; it's getting too hard to fold myself up like a pretzel any more. And, honestly, nobody needs a bike that's governed to "only" 187 mph... I'm down to these last two at the moment; an '06 XL883 Harley Sportster that's my "daily driver" and an '04 BMW R1150GS Adventure. Makes a really good sport touring bike (corners like you wouldn't believe, with the right tires), and goes like stink down dirt roads, too. That picture was taken in the other Las Vegas - in New Mexico...:whistle:

    I knew I read somewhere you rode......"Only 187 mph" lol

    I once got my FZR up to about 145, that was enough for need for me to go any faster :)

    My last bike was a V-Strom 650. I sold it 3 years ago for a down payment on my boring, stupid house. :crying:

    I ride! I have three bikes, a 2009 Ducati Multistrada 1100S and two Harleys: a 1988 Sportster and a 2009 Dyna Super Glide.

    I love them all, though if I had to only keep one it would be the Dyna.

    You couldn't give me a Harley. However, a nice Honda...

    Rode from age 22 to age 59, took a few years off. My last bike.....the '99 Boxer on the right.


    Planning to move back to Colorado soon (motorcycle heaven), will be buying another BMW...namely, this one, an R1200RT...the undisputed king of the sport tourers. Can't wait to get back in the saddle again! :thumbsup:
