Upgrade to 1930 Brough Superior SS100?

Now that I have mastered the 24HP of the CBR250R, wondering if I should step up to the 45HP of the 1939 Brough Superior SS100?

Yes, the $250,000 value of a 1939 SS100 is a bit of a step up from the CBR250R price level...but I feel like I am ready to handle it.

I would like to know if any other CBR250R owners are also considering upgrading to the Brough Superior, or any other bike with more power. For example, the 45HP 1931 Henderson KJ Police Special?

Looks like a Yamaha bolt after it got mugged outside a bar...suicide shifter included... Do I appreciate it as a piece of history...sure...but do I want to commute on it or hit the twisties...don't think so...

What about a post-war Vincent Black Shadow? Interesting how the bike's controls were designed, taking into consideration the injuries suffered by WWII servicemen. Bloody brilliant.

Possibly the world's most beautiful motorcycle engine.

Everyone has the right to be offended but just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right!
