Have you test ridden a Fury? I agree its gorgeous, but it is slow even for a cruiser.

Simple wants....



1972 BMW R75

And of course I have to get my Ducati fix:



Don't need an 1199 or 1299. But I would do the SSSA switcheroo.

And then... (this might double the amount limit, but oh well...as long as we're dreaming):

I test rode a old vtx1300 which had the same engine. It felt fine for my needs. Was able to lock up the wheel with just engine braking which was scary. Figured less metal and plastic would make it feel lighter.

Hmmm. Good question.

1984 Honda VF500F Interceptor (Hey - it was my first motorcycle crush as a teen). I've ridden a V30 Magna - but not the VF500F.

1994 RVF400R (I need at least one bike with gear-driven cams).

Yamaha R3 (very few faults with this bike).

Husqvarna 701 Enduro (for some adventure riding).

The new XDiavel looks outstanding. It's got my vote.

The XDiavel caters for personalized riding positions. Quote from some journalists write up:

It's also got a much more cruisy ride position well, 60 ride positions to be precise, because there's four different footrest positions, five different seats and three different handlebars to choose from to suit the looks and ergonomics of each rider

This thing looks tough!
